Once you book your ticket online, you’ll receive instant confirmation of your trip.

Cons

If you cancel your trip, you will not receive a refund because they adopt the no-refund policy.

There are no toilets on the bus, therefore, if you need to use the bathroom, you might have to wait until the bus stops at the gas station.

Keep in mind

Passengers are advised to check in 30 minutes before departure and present a printed ticket voucher.

If you are traveling to Singapore it is important to note that the driver only stops for 30 minutes at the border. If you miss the bus, you’ll have to wait for the next one.

Because bus tickets are usually sold out during school holidays and festive seasons, it is important to buy your tickets online in advance to secure the seat of your choice.

Travellers Reviews

When it comes to bus travel, Delima Express receives numerous positive reviews for their comfortable buses and excellent service. However, there are complaints of bus drivers not informing passengers of the stop locations which have seen some passengers alight at the wrong destination. There are reports that some passengers end up missing their bus at the immigration. However, as stated above, the bus only stops for thirty minutes at the border, therefore, if you'll take longer than that, you may be forced to wait for the next bus.

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

According to GoThere and Google Maps "Woodland Causeway Point" is at Woodlands MRT. That is were I was expecting to get off. Instead the bus went directly from the Woodlands checkpoint to the corner of Guillemard Rd and Pebble Lane which is nowhere near an MRT station.

★☆☆☆☆
Didn't actually take us to city plaza in Singapore. Simply left us stranded at the border crossing, so had pay to get on another bus. Rude driver had racist double standards about who was allowed to take food onto the bus and eat.

The driver was impatient and left several passengers at Singapore immigrantion as he didn’t want to wait any longer. He was also very unclear and unhelpful in communicating where to meet before and after immigration on both Malaysian and Singapore side.

Delima bus was old and uncomfortable. Immigration takes anywhere from 10 mins to 2 hrs to clear but the bus only waits 20 mins. Many passengers were left behind and had to find their way into the city on their own despite having paid fares with Delima to take them all the way. The staff at the immigration terminal were very helpful and said that Delima does this all the time, leaves without their passengers and heads back to Malaysia. Public transport shuttle from immigration depot to Queen Street is SGD3.50 or RM9.90

The bus was nice and was on time. The only issue we had was that we were at the bus terminal at 8:00 am for the 9:00 am bus. No one was there at counter 3, and a sign instruction to go to counter20, no one was there either, another sign told us to go to counter 2a, where there is a person in the kiosk but she can not issue tickets with our voucher. We had been panicking and running around in the terminal until some one showed up at counter 20 after 8:30 am. Recommend to have better signage to let customers know that staff will be available after 8:30 am or so.

I cannot rave about this bus trip like the reviewer before. The bus was full and bit cramped, not much space in the overhead storage, but it brought me from Malacca to KL. So it was okay, but definitely not the best bus ride I had in Asia ;-)
