    Alor Gajah Town has a small bus station, mainly for buses to drop off and pick up passengers.

    Buses that ply the routes of Melaka-Tampin, Alor Gajah-Masjid Tanah and Melaka-Kuala Lumpur will normally have a brief stop here en route to their respective destination.

    At the back of the bus station is the Alor Gajah taxi station where most cabbies would park their cab waiting for passengers.

    This is just an information if emergency cases happens during your travel here in Alor Gajah, the government hospital is situated inside the Alor Gajah town and it is very easy to access.

    It is a small district hospital with only 29 bed strength. The small bed strength is because Alor Gajah is located quite near to Melaka town that has a General Hospital. All serious cases will be refered to Melaka General Hospital. Scheduled special services provided are Orthopaedics, Medical, Psychiatry & Paediatrics.

    The address is Hospital Alor Gajah, 78000, Alor Gajah, Melaka.
    Telephone : 06-5562333.

    I frequently visits this hospital as one of my companys branch is situated inside the hospital compound.
