The RM50 bus shuttle is pretty standard. Each rows comprise of 4 seats and were adequitely comfortable. We're lucky enough that on the actual day, there's only 9 people boarding it besides us. So 2 seat for our bags and 2 seats for us :).

To get there is not a problem, but for a notice just don't forget: to feel the deep junge life on the way to, take a boat from Kuala-Tembeling...and if on the way back you would thing of avoiding it just cross the river to Kuala Tahan...but don't forget, the boat ride is fun!

From KL, get a LRT to titiwangsa station. Outside the LRTstation is the bus terminal (pekeliling terminal) for buses to east peninsular Malaysia. Buy a ticket to Jerantut. The trip from KL to Jerantut takes 4-5 hours.
You probably need to overnight in Jerantut because you wont be able to catch a boat to Taman Negara on that day itself.
If you dont have any idea on where to stay in Jerantut, walk around the small town as there are only a few hotels around. Else, you can also wait in the bus terminal in Jerantut and there will be van from hotel fetch you to their hotel (they go around the town frequently).
Get your round trip boat ticket in Jerantut. The boat departs from Jerantut to Taman Negara in the morning.
Alternatively, save all these by booking a package in KL, if not mistaken you should be able to get your package in Istana Hotel

The best way to get to Kuala Tahan is by longtail boat. Jerantut is accessible by bus from KL or Kuantan, from there take a shared taxi to Kuala Tembeling.
The boat trip takes approx. 3 hours, boats leave at 9am and 2pm in both directions, the price is around 20 RM.

By far the easiest way to get to Taman Negara is to take a coach from the Hotel Istana in KL . The bus leaves at 8 AM and arrives at the Kuala Tembeling jetty near the town of Jerantut at about 11 AM. From there you take a wooden boat upriver on a journey that takes about two and a half hours more. The boat leaves at 2 PM, and by the time you get settled in your chalet, you have only enough time sit down for a couple of beers to help beat the heat before darkness settles in.
As you can see, it takes pretty much an entire day just to get to Taman Negara by bus. The return trip is about the same. You leave on a 9 AM boat to get the bus back to KL, arriving there in late afternoon.
As an alternative, if there are enough in your group to make it affordable, it would be a better idea to rent a car and drive from KL to the jetty, arriving earlier and getting the late morning boat departure, leaving the entire afternoon free for exploration. The same can be said for the departure day. By taking the afternoon boat at 2 PM, you have an additional morning to enjoy the park.
