"Great experience using the TBS bus station!! Large bus terminal that seems more like a small airport on the outskirts of KL. TBS Terminal was newly designed, convenient facilities, plenty of seating spaces, boarding gates for buses and many food outlets were available if someone needed a meal or drink,I will definitely recommend to use this station."

The Terminal Bersepadu Selatanis is the latest bus station in Kuala Lumpur. The TBS bus terminal mainly targets travelers traveling to the south of Kuala Lumpur to places such as Johor Bahru, Melaka, Singapore and Mersing. Travelers to the north use the Pudu Sentral terminal (Puduraya). Travelers at this Terminal Bersepadu Selatan will also notice that other forms of public transport are available. Three train services, the metro, a commuter train, airport transport and city buses regularly stop at the TBS bus station. In addition, a number of taxis are waiting outside the terminal.
The TBS bus terminal is exceptionally flawless in all arrival and departure times. They are clearly mentioned on numerous screens, which can be seen by everyone. Buying tickets is a piece of cake on the system. Tickets can be purchased at the counter or online. Passengers are advised to be present at Terminal Bersepadu Selatan about time prior to departure.
The Terminal Bersepadu Selatan is located just over six kilometers outside the city center and is right next to the Bandar Tasik Selatan Railway Station.
The Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS bus terminal) looks more like an airport than a bus station. You can spend the waiting time before your bus departure with shopping, eating in restaurants or drinking a refreshing drink. There are ATMs, WiFi, luggage lockers and children's rooms in the TBS bus terminal. Unlike
Pudu Sentral, this bus station is not in the city center, but 30 minutes south of it. So try to take a bus in time. It is advisable to depart from the city center about 1 hour before departure.
Since the partial closing of most of the bus lines of the Putra Bus Terminal, TBS has also undertaken the operations of eastern buses to destinations such as Kota Bahru, Kuala Terengganu and Jerteh, Kuala Besut (jetty to Perhentian Islands) and Mersing (jetty to Tioman Island). After Puduraya - now called Pudu Sentral - was renovated and reopened in 2011, it only serves buses to the north.
The official name of this bus station is "Terminal Bersepadu Selatan - Bandar Tasik Selatan" or abbreviated "TBS-BTS". This is certainly not a catchy name for a bus terminal. So everyone calls it "TBS".
Bandar Tasik Selatan is the area of KL in which the bus station is located. Translated, this means "Southern Lake of the City". The adjacent LRT station is also called "Bandar Tasik Selatan". TBS uses the word "Selatan" in the name for buses to the south, which means "South".
Here are some examples of departing and arriving buses:

The Kuala Lumpur Light Rail Transit, called
LRT, is a public rail transport service that runs two major routes, the Kelana Jaya LRT line and Ampang LRT line. The Kelana Jaya LRT line operates an approximate 27km course from north to south, between Kelana Jaya (in the Klang Valley, 17km away from the heart of KL) and Gombak (16km from the city centre). Both routes start at the Sentul Timur LRT Station in the north of Kuala Lumpur, with the first route ending in Sri Petaling in the south, while the second course ends in Ampang in the eastern suburbs of the city.
