ETS Gold 9420up + KTM Komuter Northern Sector 2910up & 2963dn: KL Sentral to Butterworth via Padang Rengas and Bukit Mertajam by Train

For this Penang trip, I opted to get there by ETS train as I have not taken KTM for quite some time. However, KTM's genius timetable does not offer any morning trains from KL Sentral to Butterworth. On top of that, the first direct train to Butterworth at 11.25am is an ETS Platinum service. Not … Continue reading ETS Gold 9420up + KTM Komuter Northern Sector 2910up & 2963dn: KL Sentral to Butterworth via Padang Rengas and Bukit Mertajam by Train

As I had a previous ridiculous 1 hour wait for the Railink train on my previous trip, I had wanted to revert to taking the DAMRI bus to Gambir Railway Station, but a quick search on Railink's website shows that services has been increased to a regular 30 minutes frequency.
