Starmart Express, in addition to Konsortium, also offer a service to Taiping (if searching for buses to Taiping, sometimes you'll need to search for Kamunting as the destination, which is where the long distance buses to Taiping stop).

You can get an idea of schedules and prices for Starmart Express on the BusOnlineTicket website ( http://www.busonlineticket.com/ ) and for Konsortium Bus Express on the Easibook website ( http://www.easibook.com/ ).

Both depart from Butterworth, so you'll need to get from Penang Island to the mainland (we'd suggest just take the ferry as it will get you exactly where you need to be).

Hope this helps,
