Getting to Penang from Butterworth

The oldest transportation to George Town Penang Island is by ferry transfer from Butterworth Jetty. There is bus terminal and also train station at Butterworth. You just need to walk to the ferry terminal within 100m away. You pay around one time RM1.20 for adult per trip. Back from George Town is free of charge. While you are boarding to the ferry, you can see the Penang George Town KOMTAR tower from far. The ferry will take approximately 15-20 minutes to reach George Town ferry terminal. Once you get down from ferry, you can either take RAPID bus service or taxi to go to George Town city center.

Ferry service is the oldest mode of transport between the mainland and Penang Island. Since Penang Bridge was completed in year 1985, most of the motorists are using the Penang Bridge. The first exit is Sungai Dua and use Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah to go to George Town. Now the distance to George Town was shorten by traveling along Tun Dr Lim Chong Ewe Expressway was built in Nov 2010.. It takes approximately 15 minutes to reach KOMTAR George Town after exit from Penang Bridge.


Kindly be tactful with the title. Getting to Penang from Butterworth is factually as wrong as Getting to Malaysia from Kuching.

Penang should always be seen as a state. Therefore, the title have to be corrected to:
Getting to George Town from Butterworth.
