getting around Georgetown and Penang Island

Husband and I will be in G/T for 8 days. Is there a transit card for the bus system eg like Oyster Card in London or Octypus Card in HK? I notice there is a free bus service for the immedicate location of G/T and for Penang.

Also, is there a bus service from the airport to G/T? We are staying at the Bayview in G/T (not Batu Ferrengi) or should we just get a local taxi from the airport. I think the taxi is approx 40 mins. If there is a bus, how long will it take and how close is the bus stop to the Bayview?

Do you have a comment of cost of either?
