The Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS Bus Terminal) is more like a state-of-the-art airport than a bus station. Imagine spending the dreaded wait time for a bus by catching up on some shopping, visiting quaint boutiques, having a bite to eat or sitting down for a nice, refreshing drink. At the TBS Bus Terminal, there are ATMs, Wi-Fi, luggage counters, and rooms to care for small children. All of this is what Malaysian travelers will find at the TBS Bus Terminal. There are two levels of convenient facilities to offer. This is quite a switch from other standard, overcrowded and stuffy bus terminals.
This terminal is very new, having opened in 2011. The TBS Bus Terminal caters specifically to travelers headed south of Kuala Lumpur, to places such as Johor Bahru, Melaka, Singapore, and Mersing. Northbound travelers would use the Pudu Sentral terminal. Travelers at this Terminal Bersepadu Selatan will also find that other forms of public transportation are readily available. Three train services, the subway, a commuter, airport transit, and city buses run through the TBS Bus Terminal regularly, with a fleet of taxis waiting outside the terminal.
Travelers have no problems finding what they need since there are ample signs that clearly indicate various points of interest. TBS Bus Terminal is exceptionally spotless and all arrivals and departures are clearly listed in numerous areas for all to see. Purchasing tickets is a breeze with the system that is currently in place. Tickets can be purchased at the counter or online. Passengers should arrive at the Terminal Bersepadu Selatan about an hour prior to departure.
The Terminal Bersepadu Selatan is just over six miles outside of the city center and located directly next to Bandar Tasik Selatan train station. The best suggestion for getting to the TBS Bus Terminal from the city is via the LRT from the Chinatown area, Pasar Seni, the Puduraya area, or the Bukit Bintang area and head towards Sri Petaling.
