Rapid Penang CAT Bus Service from Terminal Jetty (Pengkalan Raja Tun Uda) to KOMTAR by Free Central Area Transit Bus
Rapid Penang CAT (Central Area Transit) is a free loop bus service plying around the city area of Penang Island between Terminal Jetty and KOMTAR. After arriving from the Rapid Penang FERI Bus Service, I transferred on to the next bus departing from Terminal Jetty on to KOMTAR where my hotel was.
As luck would have it, the next bus departing was the free Rapid Penang CAT, which saved me RM1.40 in bus fares.
My bus was resting at Terminal Jetty while waiting for the next trip at 7.30pm. Once ready, the bus moved up to the CAT berth to pick up queuing passengers.
The Rapid Penang CAT bus journey from Terminal Jetty to KOMTAR took 12 minutes with no traffic jams.
From the KOMTAR CAT bus stop, it was a short walk onwards to my hotel for the night – Kimberley Hotel Georgetown.
