Buses & Coaches, Kuala Lumpur
If we would like to travel south part of Malaysia like Johor and Melaka, then it is more convenience if we take bus from Terminal Bersepadu Selatan. It is easy to reach just take the train Komuter from KL central to Bandar Tasik Selatan where the bus station located.
When you arrive in KLIA, you should go straight down to the KLIA Bus Station. You should turn right once you get out of the departure hall, then look for the signboard to the KLIA Bus Station.
Once you arrive at the Bus Station, you can pay for the bus ticket at the counter. Do check with them the time for the next departure bus leaving the airport. Wait for the bus at platform 1.
There is plenty space for your luggage space underneath the bus. I took the bus several times in KLIA , and it never gets crowded. I found that it is a comfortable ride to KL Sentral. It takes 1 hour to reach KL Sentral, also depends on the traffic during your ride.
Well, it is a cheap ride as RM10 per person comparing to take the KLIA Express as RM35 per person.
Check out its website for more information.
If you have a long transit period in KLIA, you can consider taking this bus out to a local town called Nilai. Nilai is a typical small town in West Malaysia. You will see shops, houses, supermarkets, and private colleges. This town has been chosen by local private colleges to set up their campuses here. So you will expect to see many college students taking the bus to campus.
Alternately, if you have a whole day or more than 6 hours in KLIA, take the bus and stop at the KTM Nilai Station. You can take the KTM train 9 stops to Mid Valley Shopping Mall by this train.
This is more like a budget option to see KL during your transit in KLIA. Otherwise, you can take the KLIA Express to downtown within 30 minutes, which will cost you RM35 each way!
The bus frequency is about 20 minutes.
Bus Fare: RM1.50 - RM3.20
This might be helpful if you have connecting flights between KLIA to LCCT.
You can catch a Cityliner Bus at KLIA Bus Station on platform 10 to go to LCCT, Airasia flights.
It has the frequency of 30 minutes each bus in each direction. I will take 30 minutes to reach the airport.
Bus Fare: RM2.50 each person.
You can take a massage coach from the Berjaya Time Square at Bukit Bintang to Singapore without going to the main bus stations like Pudu or Tasik Selatan Station. But it will cost you more for the comfort and convenience. The bus will pick up passengers at the west side of the Berjaya Time Square. The ticket office is right there too!
One way bus ticket to Singapore will cost you S$30 or RM75.
It also serves the route to Taiping, Perak.
Check out its website for more information.

If you arrive by plane to the low cost terminal (LCCT) in Kuala Lumpur then you have very cheap busses going in to town for just 8-9 Ringgitt for a one way fare.

It's a very cheap and effective way of getting in to the city and these busses stop at KL Sentral where it's easy to find transport to other parts of the city.

From KL it's easy to find a bus to Singapore, it takes about 5 hours and provides a smooth journey across the bridge and to the border. At the border it gets a little confusing, some buses will dump you here, others take you further.
This is how I usually travel in/out to LCCT.
From KL Sentral to LCCT:
---> KLIA Transit: Buy the ticket KL Sentral at KLIA Express Ticket Counter. You pay RM12.50, you will be given one train ticket plus one coach ticket. You will ride the KLIA transit train from KL Sentral to Salak Tinggi Station. When you exit the Salak Tinggi Station, you will see the coach waiting for you to continue your journey to LCCT.
---> The whole journey takes between 50 minutes to 1 hour.
---> Alternative Skybus: If you choose the skybus, sometimes the bus is full you have to wait another 30 minutes for another bus to leave. Driver and staffs are not friendly, and lie to you about the schedule. Especially if you are in the rush to the airport, you could turn out to miss your flight. They are not responsible for the delay. Unless you have plenty of time, then it is okay to take the skybus, RM9.
From LCCT to KL Sentral:
---> I usually take skybus RM9 from LCCT to KL Sentral.

It is a comfortable air-conditioning bus ride to see downtown KL. I highly recommend it especially during non-rushing hours, 10:30am - 4pm.
You can only ride the bus at designated bus-stops " GOKL City Bus".
Taking the hus to and from Kuala Lumpur is very easu these days after the new Pudu Sentral station has opened after a long renovation.
The bus station was formerly known as Puduraya, but is now just called "Pudu Sentral".
The station is located right in between Bukit Bintang and Chinatown, which is the two parts of town where most people travel from and that makes it very easy for the traveller.
There are lot's of companies travelling from the bus station and lot's of counters where you can buy tickets to pretty much all of the malaysian peninsula aswell as Singapore and Thailand.
Just be ware of the touts, especially at night.
These guys are mostly not of the honest kind and many of them sell fake tickets, aso just ignore them and go to the ticket window yourself.
Most malaysian long distance busses these days are very comfortable and the seats are comparable to what you see on business class on airplanes, so bus travel is fine in Malaysia.
