The Go Genting Express Bus, officially known as the Genting Express Bus Service, is the main shuttle bus operated in-house by Resorts World Tours Sdn. Bhd. to shuttle guests between Kuala Lumpur and Resorts World Genting.
I chose to get to Genting via Gombak LRT Station (Terminal PUTRA) as it is the nearest departure point to Genting and the departure timing fits with my travel plans.
You can get your tickets directly at the counter, otherwise they can also be pre-purchased at any Go Genting counter at KL Sentral, Pudu Sentral, 1 Utama or Awana Bus Terminal as well.

The interior of the Go Genting Express Bus. Despite having a seat number on the ticket, the bus is free-seating.
At 5.00pm sharp, the bus shut its doors and departed for Genting. Don’t be late.
Looking back at Gombak LRT Station on the way to Karak Highway.
The winding Karak Highway on the way to Resorts World Genting.
Exiting at Genting Sempah.
On the long and winding road to Genting Highlands, with the driver skillfully meandering the bus up
as if he’s done it over a hundred times. Yeah, he probably has.
Passing the Polis Bantuan post at Genting Sempah.
Heading up to the clouds.
Passing by Genting Permai.
Also, there’s a “mini Cameron Highlands” beside Genting Permai, perhaps you could pop by here if you don’t have time to visit the two most popular highlands in West Malaysia.
Approaching the roundabout to get to Gohtong Jaya or Awana. Also, a sign before the roundabout tells you which SkyWay to use to get to Resorts World Genting.
Approaching another Polis Bantuan post for Awana.
The new Awana Transportation Hub, but is now called the Awana Bus Terminal.
Disembarking at the Awana Bus Terminal. A similar arrangement as Terminal Bersepadu Selatan applies here, as such the arriving buses probably do not have a berth for alighting passengers.
Buses from other companies and destinations also stop at Awana Bus Terminal between 7am to midnight, including buses from Singapore and even if they claim to stop at First World Bus Terminal or Mushroom Farm Bus Terminal (doesn’t exist anymore), unless specifically stated and cross-checked.
Inside the terminal. Both arriving and departing passengers are mixed in the building, so follow the signs to get around.
Go up 3 storeys from the Lower Ground level where the buses arrive to Level 2 where the Awana SkyWay departs from to continue your journey to Resorts World Genting.
