One of the biggest advantages with travelling with Unititi Express is the use of larger buses on these services. This means that it is a lot more comfortable than services with some competitors that use minivans on these routes. Whilst this may not make a huge amount of difference if you are only travelling for a couple of hours, it is particularly important on the longer distances such as between Kuala Lumpur and the Cameron Highlands.
The routes offered by Unititi Express connect some of the major tourist destinations across the country and is one of the cheapest options for travelling between Kuala Lumpur, Penang and the Cameron Highlands.
As is the case with many operators on these routes, there are no toilets onboard the vehicles used by Unititi Express. Of course, there are plenty of breaks during the journey for passengers to stretch their legs, use the facilities and to buy snacks for the remainder of the trip.
Keep in mind
If you have any issues when you are in Kuala Lumpur you can head to the office in Pudu Sentral which can be found at counter 41.
Unititi Express is one of the most popular operators in the country partly because it has services to almost every major tourist destination across Malaysia.
The low cost of fares on all the services and well-scheduled departures times also help to make it a hugely popular option, especially amongst travellers who are on a budget.
The departures are timed throughout the day so passengers always have a good choice of times to suit their schedule, whether they wish to arrive at their destination by lunchtime or do not mind arriving in the evening.
For those who have a late night or early morning flight from Kuala Lumpur you may have a long wait as the final service of the day arrives into the capital at around 20.30. This can be an issue if your flight is the following morning and you will have to arrange accommodation.
