SELAYANG: Rawang folk will now find it more convenient to travel out of the state as the new Rawang bus terminal is offering express bus services to the east coast and north and south.
At the opening of the terminal by Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Donald
Lim recently, Gabungan Pengusaha Teksi dan Bas Ekspres Konsortium
Transnasional Bhd chairman Tajuddin Daud said the express buses to the
east coast started operating about a month ago.
"There are eight trips to the east coast and four return trips daily.
"There is also one bus company offering two trips to the northern states and back," said Tajuddin.
He said the company was focussing on east-bound trips because surveys
conducted by the terminal's management have shown that a third of
passengers using the Putra Terminal in Kuala Lumpur bound east were from
Passenger will also be able to book a ferry trip to Indonesia from the terminal soon.
Express buses from the terminal would drop passengers off at Port Klang where they can board the ferry.
"There is a car park at the terminal with some 150 parking bays for the public.
"There will be a two-tier parking system to cater for the express buses," he said.
Tajuddin said city buses would continue picking and dropping off passengers at designated areas around the terminal.
The terminal was built by a private company under a budget of RM3.5 million in 2009.
It is expected to be surrendered back to the Selayang Municipal Council (MPS) in a few years.
