Express Bus Malaysia Guide

Luxury coach and express bus services are popular with people travelling between Singapore and Malaysia. Each year, tens of thousands of travellers head north by taking the bus to Malaysia - to major cities and tourist attractions such as Malacca, Kuala Lumpur, Genting Highlands, Seremban, Ipoh and Penang.

Flight vs Bus from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur

Express bus companies have been sprucing up their Singapore to KL coach services to rival cheap flights from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur and Penang offered these budget airlines: Jetstar Airways, Tiger Airways, Air Asia and Firefly.

Why Take the Bus to Malaysia

Some of the reasons people are taking the express bus to Kuala Lumpur rather than budget airlines is the convenience and the luxury that these express bus services are offering to travellers at very competitive prices.

It's Convenient and Save Time & Money

For destinations like the smaller cities and larger towns such as Muar, Yong Peng, Ayer Hitam, Mersing & Kluang in Johor; Port Dickson; Lumut (Gateway to Pangkor Island), and etc., that do not have an airport nearby, taking the express bus would save you time and money.
