myBAS Johor Bahru Bus T30 from JB Sentral to Kulai
myBAS Johor Bahru Bus T30 is a local bus service operated by Causeway Link plying between JB Sentral and Taman Putri Kulai, making a stop at Kulai Bus Terminal in both bounds. With myBAS Johor Bahru implemented since 31 March 2022 and some route changes since 1 February 2023, myBAS Johor Bahru Bus T30 operated by Causeway Link now plies the previous route of the defunct Causeway Link Bus 777B. Having covered the Gemas-Seremban sector by stage bus already, I decided to do the southern leg from JB now while on the way to KL.
myBAS Johor Bahru was implemented since 31 March 2022 as part of the Stage Bus Service Transformation (SBST) programme to enhance reliability and quality of stage bus services. Under SBST, stage bus companies focus on delivering quality bus services while operating on a gross cost mechanism. The Land Public Transport Commission (APAD) is in charge of the route network and collecting fare revenue from bus operators, while bus operators will be paid service fees to operate the route.
JB Sentral Bus Terminal is the main hub for myBAS Johor Bahru bus routes, located before entering JB Sentral Railway Station when walking on the bridge after clearing Malaysia immigration from Singapore.
