FAQ

1.    How do I get to Universiti Sains Malaysia from the airport?
Penang is easily accessible by air with daily flights from major capitals in the region.  However, take note that many international flights to Penang will usually transit in Kuala Lumpur where passengers will be then transferred to a domestic flight to Penang. The Bayan Lepas International Airport is situated about 10 km away from the USM Main Campus, and about 20 km from the City Centre, Georgetown. Taxis at the airport operate using a coupon system by which fares between the airport and various destinations in Penang are fixed. Passengers pay the fare at the taxi booth at the airport in exchange for a coupon which they will then produce to the taxi driver. The taxi booth can be seen clearly as you walk out of the arrival lounge.
