Crossed from Singapore to Johor Bahru by the Causeway. Then took a local bus to Larkin Bus Station in Johor Bahru.
Upon arrival, was surrounded by ticket sellers for buses to Kuala Lumpur, Melaka, Penang and other parts of Malaysia. They were not too aggressive but come right to your face.
Usually these sellers get a commission from the bus companies especially the smaller ones or tour agencies trying to fill up their buses. So these buses may wait for awhile or may stop at different places to pick up or drop off passengers.
I headed to the bus counters. The other companies like Konsortium, Transional, Plusliners have departed and next buses were later. So I decided to try Mara Liner for the first time.
Fare was RM24 (standard for VIP, not Super VIP) from Larkin to Puduraya (Kuala Lumpur). The bus departed on schedule at 10:30am and did not do a lunch stop like some of the companies. There was a restroom stop as these buses do not have toilet on board.
Arrive at Kuala Lumpur around 2:30 pm as there was a jam at one stretch due to road repair.
Overall, new bus and great bus trip. It is a smaller bus company and fewer scheduled departures.
Almost everyone local and foreign tourists have complained about the conditions of this central bus station. Overcrowded and was supposed to be replaced by a modern station.
But it has excellent central location and efficient enough. There are two floors. The top floor is for bus ticket counters, waiting place and have stalls selling food or things for your journey.
There are left luggage services. Avoid buying tickets from touts. There are buses that are also picking out passengers and wait just outside the bus station. Better to get a scheduled bus departure ticket from a bigger bus company.
There is LRT station, Rakyat Plaza, which 5 minutes walk up a covered but sloped pedestrian pathway. So if you have heavy luggage, give yourself more time.
There are different buses, economy, VIP and super VIP with different prices and comfort. Pudu Raya is like a zoo but runs well enough.
From Bangsar station, take the exit to your left where you will see a bust stop towards Mid Valley. You could take the free shuttle (Trinton Bus) direct to Mid Valley South Court.
Do check the frequency of the bus which could be at an interval of 30 mins with some break times in between.

I can see buses plying around the city of Kuala Lumpur but I cannot recommend to use because they are a bit uncomfortable based on my observation. If you are a tourist, use a taxi or a tour bus for fixed and affordable rates and for a convenient journey.
