Terminal Bas Expres

Sungai Nibong
Ben van Wijnen

"This is a newer bus terminal that is not too far from the city center, Bukit Jambul, and the Penang Bridge so it is easy to get an express bus or taxi. Opening in mid-2005, the new bus terminal is now called Terminal Bas Expres Sungai Nibong. The Sungai Nibong Bus Terminal serves all destinations within the country, so this is the terminal that most travelers will use."

Counters to buy a ticket.
Ticketing Offices above the buses.

If you come to the bus terminal, zul you'll have to take the staircase or the elevator to the first floor.
Here you'll find a restaurant and some shops, where you can buy water and candy for the bus.

Further there is a long line, with a lot of ticketing offices of the several bus companies.
Here you can buy ticket.
Usually at the front of these counters are the prices and the departure times of the buses.

So you can decide yourself, which bus company you like and what time your bus is leaving.
If you have bought a ticket, then you go down the staircase to the right  "platform".
Best you can buy a ticket one day in advance.
Many Malaysians or tourists love to travel in the evening or night.
You can enjoy the day and you spend the night in the bus.
The buses are comfortable, but you better take along a pullover against the cold of the air conditioning.

At the right we see a sign board of one of the counters  We can there are buses going to the Cameron Highlands, Singapore and Hat Yai (Thailand).
Obviously this one has a Chinese owner, but do not worry: everyone speaks English.

Question: How many buses a day are going to Johor Bahru?

Another one: Many people love travel in the night. How many night buses go from Penang to Kuala Lumpur?
