Embark a trip from Sunway Carnival Mall Bus Stop to Penang's Gurney Plaza

Penang Rapid Bus Ticket

Public Transportation is always the ideal choice as to keep all the cash on the food expenses. There is a nice bus stop located just nearby Billion store and Sunway Carnival Mall. Many buses stopped here , take the bus showing " Jetty" . Ask the driver they know best ! From this point, the bus will take you to various bus stops before heading to Jetty. One of the bus stop is Hospital Seberang Jaya.

Inside the rapid bus

Comfortable seats and air-condition equipped. One should always prepare enough coins before boarding as the bus driver would not have any spare money for big bank notes.

On the way to Penang Jetty Waiting Place

It took one hour more or less depend on the traffic condition. As soon as one arrived the last bus checkpoint "Jetty", there are lots of buses parked at there. Follow the crowd to a passage and head to Jetty area. It was an amazing up and down route crossing sky bridge to get to the Jetty waiting place.

RM1.20 ferry ride to Penang
Pay for a ferry ride to Penang Island

Get your coins ready before entering to "Jetty's waiting place". The gate is not functioning well so put more coins. I have inserted more than RM 1.20 worth of coins. Queue up to get some old coins as the staff said the gate recognize old coins rather than the new coin. 

Ample seats for passengers waiting for next ferry. Rushing in once the yellow gate opened. Feeling nervous there would not be enough ferry seats being forced to wait another ferry. Relieved, the ferry able to get loads of passengers on board.

Fairly easy and inexpensive one-day trip. Thank God and all the peoples. Spent RM 5.00 for a overwhelmingly fun trip. There is no fee taking ferry back to Butterworth / Mainland. Considering it was RM0.60 for a ferry return trip
