Bus stations

  • Weld Quay Bus Terminal

    City bus station Weld Quay Bus Terminal. It is the Georgetown city bus station, or the terminus of city buses, but not intercity. Almost directly adjacent to the ferry pier to the mainland in the city of Butterworth (station on the map). For tourists, this station is also important due to the fact that it is the final stop for the 401e bus coming from the airport, the final free tourist bus MPPP CAT. Almost all city buses Penang, with few exceptions, start and end their journey here. To get here from the areas of Georgetown, it is enough to take any bus in the city, including a free tourist. The main thing is not to confuse the direction of movement from/to the pier. The free MPPP bus runs around the ring, so whichever way you take it, sooner or later you will find yourself here.

  • Komtar Bus Terminal

    Komtar city bus station (Komtar Bus Terminal). At the base of Komtar towers (Komtar tower is the tallest building in Penang, which houses offices and a shopping center), on the ground floor, is the main station of city buses. The area around the tower is considered a new tourist area. The tower is visible from almost anywhere in the city (Komtar on the map).

    If you arrived at the Weld Quay Bus Terminal or arrived by ferry at the jetty, you can get here on foot, simply moving towards the building, which is visible from anywhere in the city. You can also take any Rapid Penang bus, as all their routes from Weld Quay lie through Komtar.

    Boarding buses and movement at the station are organized very logically and clearly. There are five lines, each of which is designed to wait for certain groups (numbers) of buses. Each line is equipped with waiting benches and billboards with a traffic map, route numbers and popular places (including tourist) to which buses run from this line. Also at the station there is a convenient electronic scoreboard showing bus numbers, their current location and predicted arrival time, arrival line.

    Please note that the free MPPP tour bus does not call at the station itself. It stops at a stop located outside 30 meters from the station.
