KUCHING SENTRAL

Ben van Wijnen

Kuching Sentral (or Kuching Bus Terminal), is located at the south of Kuching city. Kuching Sentral is about 5 minutes away from the Kuching International Airport and 20 minutes away from Kuching City Centre. This Kuching Sentral officially opened since early 2012, and it is the first air-conditioned and fully-integrated three-storey regional bus terminal in East Malaysia.

Kuching is served by several major bus companies. Among others, Chin Liang Long Motor Vehicle Co. (traditionally blue) serving Kuching South, Matang Transport Company (yellow and orange) serving Matang-Kubah and Petra Jaya Transport Company (Black, yellow and red strips) serving Kuching North.
The Sarawak Transport Company (traditionally green) and Bau Transport Company (Red) have routes from Kuching to other smaller towns. A large portion of the buses in service are antiquated and not air conditioned. The fares are low. For tourists, the State Ministry of Tourism has provided bus shuttles to transport tourists around Kuching.

 
Kuching Sentral is the transportation hub in Sarawak which serves the arrival and departure for long distance express buses, regional buses and cross border express bus. Examples of long distance servicing routes includes Kuching to Miri, Kuching to Bintulu, Kuching to Sibu, as well as Kuching to Pontianak (City in West Kalimantan).
