if that really the case, i wonder why express bus still surviving??....they are more expensive and even longer duration.

those promo price are just deceiving..... not include other hidden charges.... not to mention it always on very bad timing... odd hours.. midweek etc....

if you need to travel on peak time which most of us will have due to work or school commitment, we will have to pay much higher fares... not to mention the price when we need to do emergency travel..... only few that fly domestic are tourist and have flexible time....

at least with train we will have a fixed price, and if it priced at realistic value... it will represent a really viable alternative.

Furthermore, train will have more stations which mean it could be much closer to your final destination, reducing additional cost

Europe is countries without borders
over here borders crossing (except probably My-Sg) close at 12
the intra ASEAN trade per GDP is less than half of that in Europe
while railway tracks and operation are unified rather than separated as in Europe where operators can run services through multiple countries.

I think railways in Europe is all about scale where they can keep the cost down while increasing the frequency???
I don't like sand. It's coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere.
