Transnasional: Larkin Sentral Johor Bahru to Terminal Bersepadu Selatan Kuala Lumpur by Night Bus

Transnasional Larkin TBS 1am 002

For this super peak Friday night before a long weekend, I decided to get to KL using the Shuttle Tebrau 96up and Transnasional 1am bus so that I can skip the jams and get there overnight efficiently. As I know Transnasional tickets sell out easily, I purchased my ticket about 2 weeks ahead at Easybook for this early morning departure.

Exchanging my Easybook printout at the counter, I retrieved my boarding pass at the ticket counter for the Transnasional 1am bus to Terminal Bersepadu Selatan Kuala Lumpur.

The Easybook Order Summary needs to be printed out and presented to counter upon check in, otherwise, the Larkin Sentral counter may charge RM1.00 for every boarding pass printed.

The Transnasional 1am bus closed the bus doors at 12.58am, and reversed out of the platform at 1.00am sharp.

The bus made a stop at Yong Peng Lucky Garden in the middle of the journey for a break, but I didn’t alight so that I could try to get more sleep.

Overall, another good ride with Transnasional and a fortunate combination with the Shuttle Tebrau 96up to skip the Causeway jams on this super peak Friday night before a long weekend to get from Singapore to KL in a fixed time without the need to worry about the Causeway and immigration jams.
