Causeway Link Airport Express Bus AA1 from JB Sentral to Senai Airport

The Causeway Link AA1 Airport Shuttle Bus is an airport express bus from JB Sentral in downtown Johor Bahru to Senai International Airport. While previously operating a somewhat frequent service during most times of the day, there are currently just 5 return trips a day now departing every 2 hours. Nevertheless, the timing of the noon departure worked out for me, so I secured my ticket early on Easybook just in case tickets get sold out.
