Very professional handling from booking to arrival. The seats of the (older) bus were comfortable and provided a lot of legroom. I wished there was an option (a net or similar) for personal items to put in during the trip, but it didn't bother a lot. The multimedia screens at the seats didn't work, but it's not a big deal either ;)

Happy with the service provided. Bus arrived pretty much bang on time (15 minute delay), made a food / loo stop half way through the journey and the seats were comfortable.

The bus was clean and comfortable. Everything was fine and the driver drove safely. The bus was approximately on time. On the 5-6 hours trip from KL to Penang we had a lunch/restroom break right after Ipoh. Buying the ticket in 12Go Asia was easy and I got the e-ticet to my email right after finishing the purchase on 12Go site.

But was clean and comfortable. Bus driver was a lunatic. Speed limiter alarm was ringing for the whole journey. Coming down one of the big hills, he was going so fast that if another vehicle had pulled out it would have been game over. Very bad driver
