BUS STATIONS in Malaysia

Imbi express bus terminal starts operation on Jan 15
By By Syed Umar Arif


THE new RM1 million Imbi express bus terminal will start operating from Jan 15, Commercial Vehicles Licensing board chairman Datuk Raja Ahmad Zainuddin Raja Omar said today. Express bus companies, including those servicing the Singapore route, would be using the terminal, which is located in Pasar Rakyat.

Intrakota Sdn Bhd and Putra Liner would also pick up and drop passengers at the terminal, Raja Ahmad said after inspecting the bus terminal.

Express bus companies Transnasional, Park May, Nice and Gunung Raya Express would also use the terminal, he said.

Among the new facilities provided in the terminal, are food courts, post office, surau and a playground, said its managing director Steve Wong.

BUS STATIONS in Klang Valley

Pasar Rakyat bus station








By FARRIS BAHAROM


WITH the latest addition of Hentian Bas Pasar Rakyat, the city now boasts five express bus terminals catering to destinations throughout the country.

Finding your way onto the right bus with minimum hassle is often a challenge, but in certain cases, long queues and crowds need not be the case as several alternatives are available to travellers heading out of town on the average day. However, travelling during long weekends and holidays can still prove to be a challenge.

Whenever travelling by bus comes to mind, the first destination most city dwellers have in mind is inevitably the Puduraya Bus Terminal.






Hentian Bas Jalan Pekeliling in Jalan Pekeliling Lama is the most accessible to pedestrians as it is convenient to get there by bus, taxi, LRT and even the KL Monorail.







Over 30 bus companies operate from Puduraya, which is also the city’s largest public transportation terminal.

The terminal is easily reached via the Star LRT (Plaza Rakyat station), taxi or city buses.

Recent directives from the Commercial Vehicle Licensing Board (CVLB) have reduced the number of buses at the station’s 29 platforms at any one time, reducing traffic congestion, with slight changes to passengers’ pick-up and drop off points.









Lack of public transport to get passengers to the city centre is the only drawback of the Hentian Duta station, located near the Tun Razak Hockey Stadium.







Puduraya still caters to all destinations to the north, south and west, and tickets are still readily available here despite speculation that more bus services would be diverted to other terminals, which has yet to happen.

Hentian Duta, located next to the Tun Razak Hockey Stadium (near the Jalan Duta roundabout), is now fully operational and provides complementary bus services mirroring that of Puduraya.

Since last May, the ticket counters of Transnasional, Genting and Airport Coach buses (hourly buses to KLIA,) have been joined by 28 other bus companies catering to routes to the north and south, providing passengers an alternative to Puduraya.

Ample parking space inside and outside the bus terminal make it a convenient pick-up point for those receiving relatives from out of town. However, those travelling by themselves will find that taxis are the only convenient way into the city.







Buses queueing to enter the Puduraya terminal.







The lack of public transportation into the city centre is the only drawback to an otherwise comfortable and accessible terminal.

Many passengers said they preferred to board their buses at Hentian Duta but would still choose to disembark at Puduraya on their return journey, especially if they were scheduled to arrive at night.

A food court is open at the station during the day, as are several shops and newsstands.



Hentian Bas Putra, opposite the Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) provides bus services to the east coast including Kerteh, Dungun and Kuala Terengganu in Tereng-ganu, and Gua Musang, Pasir Mas and Kota Baru in Kelantan.

Buses to destinations in Pahang (Kuantan) can also be boarded here.

Facilities for passengers here include a waiting lounge, baggage lockers, a food court, public toilets and a multi-level car park.

Buses and taxis are a convenient way to get to the terminal, which can also be reached via the KTM Komuter (Putra station) and Star-LRT (PWTC station).

Hentian Bas Jalan Pekeliling in Jalan Pekeliling Lama is conveniently located between the KL Monorail and Star-LRT Titiwangsa stations.

Taxis also ply this route regularly, making it the most accessible bus terminal in the city for pedestrians.

The terminal is used to provide bus services to destinations in Pahang such as Kuantan, Raub, Kuala Lipis, Temerloh, with limited buses to Terengganu.

Facilities at this terminal are limited to hawker stalls selling refreshments and a City Hall public toilet.


Launched last month, Hentian Bas Pasar Rakyat is expected to begin operations sometime next month, though a definite date has yet to be announced.

Located between Pasar Rakyat and the food court in Jalan Imbi, the city’s newest bus terminal boasts 64 ticket counters (located on the top floor of Pasar Rakyat,) and 18 bus lanes.

Plans are afoot to raise the number of bus lanes to 60 when the terminal begins operations, if the need arises.

The bus terminal has been designed with passenger comfort in mind as its facilities include food courts and a children’s playground.


The bus terminal, which will service routes to all destinations in the country, is aimed at reducing congestion at other main bus terminals.

Putra Bus Terminal is also near to a KTM Komuter station too! .......in fact it is even nearer than the PWTC Starline station.....

Yup....Pasar Rakyat is behind Menara AA, The Forum condominium, Wisma Technip and Wisma Time. If ya know where the Imbi market is.....Pasar Rakyat is just beside it

Another marker for Jalan Imbi would be that the Imbi monorail station is above the road itself.
