this company is one of the largest bus companies in malaysia and they offer long trips to and from kuala lumpur to other parts of malaysia like penang or malacca or johore bahru and more especially to Singapore. There are basically two types of express bus services to Singapore, the economy with sleeper couches with just 27 persons per bus maximum and the first class coach which is a double decker bus with again 27 persons with sleeper couches on the second deck and a large bar with bathroom and rest area on the lower level and with free meal and drinks included. we took this bus at the new Bandar Tasik Selatan Bus Station.
The cost of a one way economy trip to singapore is RM 40 and for the first class trip on a double decker bus is RM 75.

the puduraya bus terminal was the main bus terminal for long range bus drives that go to far areas like penang, johore, singapore, thailand and other cities of Peninsular Malaysia but it was replaced recently by the Bandar Tasik Selatan Bus Terminal. This placed is really brand new and there are not much people inside yet! The Terminal is connected to the present pedestrian bridge that links Rapid KL LRT (Sri Petaling line), KTM Komuter (Rawang-Seremban line) and ERL KLIA Transit together, via a new pedestrian bridge which the entrance is one level higher. The terminal has six floors, 55 bus platforms, 150 taxi bays, 1,000 parking bays (including dedicated bays for women) and 1,800 seats for the public in the fully air-conditioned waiting halls and best of all, there are dining and shopping options inside! we even ate at a KFC in the terminal and this was the terminal we had our 5 hour bus ride to Singapore via Sri Maju Express.
Address of the BTS-IT is Kuala Lumpur Middle Ring Road 2, Bandar Tasik Selatan, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Quick note: As of April 15 2011 Bukit Jalil Bus Terminal which served as a temporary bus terminal is officially closed. So dont go there. New and improved Puduraya Bus Terminal in the middle of Kuala Lumpur is back.
From LCCT to Genting Highland, you can take SkyVans. Sharing cost is 70 MYR per person.
But if you choose to Genting by bus, as far as i know, you can take bus from KL Sentral Terminal or at Pudu Raya bus station.
If you wanna go to Genting highland directly from LCCT, i suggest you to take Skyvans.
Goto the link below for extensive Rapid KL bus network. The ticket price is valid for 1 day & unlimited based on bus category.
i.e if you board any "U" (RM2/day/pax), u can board any bus from KL Cantral market to anywhere in KL and it's surburban areas (in State of Selangor) unlimited on the same day!! Very cheap
Around KL city, the ticket price is RM1 on "B" buses.

> Which bus companies are better than others??
Check out www.malaysiasite.nl/nice.htm for more comfortable/non-stop bus travel from KL to Penang if you still opt for a bus? :-) RM50 only!
It appears to still go from the old KL Railway Station (a beauty itself! And the buildings opposite it, too! Well worth a viewing!) This saves you trying to get to the old hockey stadium in J Duta for the normal buses.
Nice buses are run by Plusliner, I believe, which also operates normal coaches. The other reputable bus company is Transnasional.
Whether you wish to take Nice or normal Plusliner/Trasnasional coaches to Penang, just go up the escalator once you arrive at KL Sentral from LCCT (by 'airbus' which costs RM9) and ask for the taxi counter - bus your taxi coupon from there and you'll be safe ;-)
A bit confusing on arrival as the train wasn't working. We eventually found the bus ( there are several ) . Instead of the 28 minutes the train would take it was over an hour.It was cheap though ,only $4.00 and took us to the same place.K.L. Sentral.
Puduraya bus station is closed. It moves to Bukit Jalil.
From Bukit Jalil you can take LRT. Just check the route of LRT from Bukit Jalil. Please see this link for reference :
I had the most harrowing experience ever in Kuala Lumpur. And I hope that you did not go through what I did. So I’m posting this to let everyone know. I love Kuala Lumpur but there are too many unscrupulous touts at KL coach station which is ruining my experience.
On the 14 June 2010 I bought a Five stars coach ticket from bus interchange in Kuala Lumpur back to Singapore. On the bus, I have to give back the Five Stars ticket to the guy who then give us another ticket which written Kuala Yakin Ekspress KCK 8311 and the facilities (such as game, aircon (see attached photo with top window is open), personal entertainment) indicated as photo attached also not available.
The most disappointing over here is the bus in extremely bad condition at all times from KL to JB. The seats are not well secured until it keeps bouncing, cockroach roaming around in between seats and smelly... The tickets are so expensive but the facilities are so bad yet we have to suffer all the way 6hrs journey without air condition. Don’t they think that c customers satisfaction comes first which will lead good business for KL coach service?
The coach driver from Kuala Yakin Espree\ss really sucks at most of the time. I can say that these guys are uncivilized barbarians till do not know how to deal with commuters feedback. The drivers are very rude and also fussy…. almost flight with one of the local commuter.
I bought ticket until Golden Miles but the bus driver left us outside JB public bus station as usual the queeeeeeeeeeee there…and most of us are first time going to Singapore from JB public transport . I get fed up is he left us in JB without any words…
I wonder where the service is and where is the satisfaction? I am only glad to make it alive from KL to Singapore. In fact I really wanted to tolerate the poor service but thinking that future passengers/customers of Five stars or co-partner could be left behind stranded at rest places I had to write this review.
KL's infamous inter-city bus station (Puduraya) is shutdown for refurbishment since April 2010. The temporary bus station is now located opposite the National Hockey Stadium at Bukit Jalil. So be sure you take into account of transport arrangement to and from this new bus station. I understand that there is a RM2 shuttle service between Puduraya and this new station. Otherwise, hop on to the Ampang Line LRT and alight at Bukit Jalil Station.
This arrangement will probably last for a couple of months.
Hello folks, just a note to inform everyone that the Puduraya bus station in KL will be closed temporarily for four months from 19 March 2010 for upgrading work.
With the closure, travellers to the south will have to use the temporary bus depot at Jalan Hang Tuah near the Kuala Lumpur police contingent headquarters while the Duta Terminal would be used for travel to the north.

Take the Genting Bus in the lower ground of KL Sentral for your trip to Genting Highlands. Just pay at their ticket counter & wait for your designated time. You might be lucky if the driver permits you to board earlier. It depends if there's vacant seats. You can choose from various packages offered. I chose the bus & skyway cable car package. There's also a package that includes meal & rides at the park.
You can choose train or bus. But for me, I prefer bus than train. Bus will take journey 5,5 hours. But train will take longer than bus.
There are several schedule bus from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur. I took the midnight one. And reach Kuala Lumpur earling morning at 6 AM. Bus is quite comfortable. I took bus from Golden Mile. The other bus station from Singapore to Malaysia is from Lavender Bus Station.
I never have experience take train from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur. But I m sure, from this website you can find the information about it.
