Komtar Bus Terminal (GPS: 5.41408, 100.34157) is a major bus bus in George Town. Most of the buses from the Weld Quay Ferry & Bus Terminal will pass through here before branching off in separate directions.

At the Komtar Bus Terminal, you can catch buses going to the north, central, south and west parts of Penang Island, as well as some buses that go to the mainland. Right now the main bus operator in Penang is the government-owned Rapid Penang. The terminal is located along Tek Soon Street, although buses approach it via Jalan Ria and they emerge from the terminal into Jalan Ria once more.
