Butterworth Railway Station
Upgraded with modern facilities for the comfort of today’s travellers
Operated by Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB), the current station is a newly built complex to replace an older one that had existed from the early 1900s till 2011.
The rail services operate mainly along two lines – one to the south with the main city destinations being Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur and Johor Baru, and the other to the north towards Hat Yai and Bangkok in Thailand. Intriguingly, the station was assigned the milestone ‘0’ or zero when the railway system began in Malaya, thus assuming it to be the “start” of the railway tracks in both the northern and southern directions. This measurement is still used till today.
It also features a new double track system with modern electric trains which travel between Butterworth and Kuala Lumpur in just three hours.
