Cityliner Service TESCO Kota Bharu AEON TESCO KB Mall 001

Cityliner Service TESCO is a shopping bus route in Kota Bharu which doubles up as a intra-city feeder bus as its route covers both the old town of Kota Bharu around the iconic Cityliner Kota Bharu Bus Station down to the Kota Bharu City Centre around KB Mall, Tune Hotel Kota Bharu City Centre, AEON, Tesco Bus Terminal and TESCO. The bus service does not bear a service number, but rather, just TESCO.

Along with other bus routes, the departure point of Cityliner Service TESCO is marked by signs hanging from the ceiling of Kota Bharu Bus Station. This is NOT a sign to walk to TESCO, please don’t do that.

Cityliner Service TESCO does not terminate at TESCO, but rather, operates as a loop service, looping at TESCO.

KB Mall and Tune Hotel Kota Bharu City Centre is just in front of the bus stop.

Overall, Cityliner Service TESCO is a rather useful bus service to get to the big shopping malls in Kota Bharu and to connect to and from long-distance bus services as no other public bus routes currently serve AEON, TESCO and Tesco Bus Terminal. I wish the Cityliner Service TESCO bus would operate more frequently and with longer operating hours though, as compared to around once every hour or so only in the day time.
