Why Take the Bus and Not Go by Air?

One of the key reasons individuals opt to take the express buses rather than budget airlines is simply due to the convenience of the pick-up and drop-off  points in their city which maybe near the MRT stations or any strategic locations.

Although the Singapore-KL bus journey takes about 5 hours as compared to 1 hour by air, the actual total travel time to Kuala Lumpur may not differ that much when you consider the amount of time spent in pre travel check-in time, immigration procedure and the 45-minute taxi ride from the KLIA to the KL city centre. So it basically comes to the same mount of hours.

The availability of mobile network connection also ia an added advantage that makes it convenient fo travellers to use their smartphone,tabs and mobile in the bus. In this way, one will  also be in constant contact with family and friends throughout the journey.

As for destinations such as Genting Highlands or Malacca, it is definately way more convenient to take the express bus in order to avoid the hassle of airport transfer and the taxi fares might cost you more than the cheap airtickets from Singapore to Malaysia.

Fast and Comfortable Travel at Affordable Fares

Generally, the Singapore-KL bus trip takes about 5 to 7 hours. And usually the fare for a one-way trip from Singapore to KL in Malaysia ranges from SGD23.00 to  SGD56.00 (approx. US$14 to US$33) depending on the class of comfort and the number of intermediate stops.

A standard express bus has a capacity to hold 40 passengers while for luxury coaches, the number of seats might be a lil lesses then the standard coaches such as 25 seats (or lesser) in order to provide passengers more leg room and elbow space. As on luxury buses, mals are usually served onboard, therefore intermediate stops would be lesser and the travel time will be shorter.
