Bukit Mertajam Railway Station (GPS: 5.3664, 100.44783) is a train station in the town of Bukit Mertajam. It is unique in that it serves as an interchange for the railway line connecting the main line to the branch line that goes to the Butterworth Railway Station. The present station was built in 2013 in anticipation of the introduction of the Electric Train Service through it. The new station is located in Permatang Rawa, to the west of the old station.
