Best and Cheapest Mode of Transport in Penang

Hi, we are scheduled to take the Star Cruise Libra from Penang on October 2, 2011. Can any one please suggest the best and cheapest mode of transport from Penang International Airport to the Swettenham Pier port to board the ship?

I think you will find the Rapid Bus is the cheapest depending on number of people. Bus number 401e goes to the pier. Check out the Rapid website.

Anirban,

you have to consider the arrival time in Penang International Airport and the bus schedule. Just in case the cruise leaves early.

Take care,

Cheers
