Bus was Fine. Everything worked well. What I really didn’t like was that the driver constantly drives to fast and because of this there was a loud warning sound nearly during the hole trip.

Comfortable. They were kind enough to wait for us being a bit late. But no toilet on board so 4 star

Bus VIP 24, StarMart Express, Jul 13, 2019
Though it stated express from JB to KL, it actually detoured or stopped at too many stops, namely Skudai Jaya, Tangkak,Seremban and Nilai (to drop off passengers KLIA bound). By the time it reached KL TBS, it’s 10.10pm instead of the originally scheduled time of 9pm.
