There are several train stations on Penang Mainland. From north to south, they include the Tasek Gelugor Railway Station, Butterworth Railway Station, Bukit Tengah Railway Station, Bukit Mertajam Railway Station, Simpang Ampat Railway Station and the Nibong Tebal Railway Station.

For passengers heading to Penang Island, the terminus is the Stesen Keretapi Butterworth (GPS: 5.3927, 100.36774) . From the train station, you can cross over to Pengkalan Sultan Abdul Halim, which is connected with a passenger viaduct. The ferry takes you across the channel to Pengkalan Raja Tun Uda at Weld Quay in George Town, where you can take the taxi or the Rapid Penang local bus to destinations all over the island. That's the benefit for people without their own transport, as it takes you right into the heart of the city whereas with the Penang Bridge, you are several miles away. On the other hand, if you are driving, then you will find that the Penang Bridge is a faster alternative.

Since 2015, the Butterworth Railway Station is served by the Electric Train Service or ETS. This high-speed rail service connects Butterworth to Gemas in the south and Padang Besar in the north.
