Frequent express buses ply the Singapore – Kuala Lumpur route daily, with most of the companies plying between Golden Mile Complex in Singapore and Terminal Bersepadu Selatan in Kuala Lumpur.

The direct journey from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur takes approximately 6 hours, which equates to a 2 to 6 hour time saving as compared with the KTM Intercity and ETS train combination with 2 transfers.

It is good to note that if you are travelling on a budget and are concerned about the cleanliness and quality of buses, it is generally better to pay a couple of dollars extra for a bus from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur than heading to Johor Bahru Larkin for a cheaper bus. Even a reliable company that departs from Singapore may have different standards for their bus departing from Johor Bahru Larkin.

Route Map

Most popular buses use the Tuas Second Link to cross from Singapore to Malaysia, but some companies may use the Woodlands Checkpoint instead. It is best to double ckeck with the operator if you prefer a certain border crossing.

    This express bus information page is really eye-opening! I never knew that one could actually travel from Singapore to KL in such style and comfort yet at such affordable prices! You were right, buses seem to be a better option than KTM, thanks to their really awesome timetabling skills (sarcasm intended).

    However, there’s one thing I’m curious to know — drivers on premium buses on KL-SG route such as Nice Imperial, Transtar Solitaire, and Odyssey Prestige, do they drive more safely as compared to drivers on 21-seater buses plying domestic routes?

      In general, without naming specific comparisons or companies, yes. If there is one thing I noticed across the board, Sinagpore – KL express buses from reputable companies seem to drive at 90km/h averagely ever since the Qistna 10-car crash last year – something which I find a pain when I see other trucks or buses overtaking me but at least I’m still around posting reviews.
