Passenger reviews out of total 457 passengers who traveled with us on this route.

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.

★★★★☆
Stairs at Butterworth station are a bit too strenuous. Train was ok. Seats are a bit crap in that they don’t match the human body for shape. No toilet paper in the bogs and it is an absolute sauna boarding and departing the train. Still beats the mental road trip from KL to Penang. Might fly next time though.. Cheers

Seats are comfortable and lots of leg room is amazing. However, the bus was so cold all the passengers seemed unhappy but the driver told us the air conditioner was broken and it couldn't turn off. The journey seemed very slow and it's a shame there are not more buses so you don't have to wait too long.

Should have more clearly advertised another pick-up point at KL Sentral. We could have just walked across the road from our hotel rather than getting caught in a queue in a taxi. Otherwise good service and good driver on busy highway!

Excellent service arriving on time 4 hours later at Butterworth. Our seats 1A and 1B were very cramped, otherwise we would have given 5*. Once people got off, we were then able to sit back and enjoy the journey in different seats.

Dec 22, 2018
bus VIP 24, Sri Maju Group
★★☆☆☆
The bus was comfortable and the windows allowed you to look out, so as to comfort it was fine. My seat did not sit fully upright, but was not too bad. My bigger concern is on safety. There were no seat belts in the seats we were occupying. Also the driver was talking on the cell phone much of the trip which I consider inappropriate especially when responsible for the safety of a bus load of people. The bus was running late, but I believe this was more a problem with TBS than with the driver, however he added to it by stopping for gas before we arrived at the bus stop rather than waiting until after he dropped us off. I would not be likely to use Sri Maju again mostly based on safety concerns.

Smooth trip - on time. Aircon set too low - all passengers affected - carriage A. Agree with other comments - seat plan could indicate restricted view seats AND direction of travel. Price on your site for 2 seats 182R inc 7R booking fee. Hard copy boarding pass showed 61R per seat. Some discrepancy - not a fortune involved!!

Trip was ok, as it should be. But nobody says that it was going to Butterworth instead of Sungei Nibong, it was me that in a gas station I realised it. So I asked the driver and my family and I, plus six more people in the same bus had to change to another bus! Lucky for us, the other bus had stopped at the same gas station.

The train was great, but our seats were next to the pillar so we had a very restricted view. Other passengers pulled down their blinds and went to sleep but as tourists we really wanted to see Malaysia. The seat booking plan should indicate which seats have an unrestricted view.

Comfortable bus. Driver made 3 stops within an hour for no reason. Delayed arrival in Penang by 2 hours. Driver also seemed unable to follow street signs and went back in the same direction we had come from twice resulting in us getting stuck in heavy traffic for no reason.

We are enjoying our train journey through Malaysia in spite of small hiccups - mainly lateness and delays. One huge gripe about the trains however is that they are FAR TOO COLD. We took an extra jumper today but we're still lumps of ice after 4 hours on the train! Please turn the ac up to a manageable temperature - 22 or 23 is fine for everyone.

Went to kl sentral early to avoid the Jam, luckily there was a place to wait on the 2nd floor, the overall train journey was comfortable. We got surprised by a snack box provided free of charge, was waiting for the trolley but it didn't come.. Had to walk to get the food. The air conditioning was a bit too cold, fortunately we had prepared for it and had some sweaters with us.

Great, streamlined service. Lots of knee space. Free water and snacks given out. All perfect but with one major niggle - the AC in Coach F was way too cold for comfort. All the passengers were wearing several extra layers just to keep warm on a 4-hour journey. For this reason I have to downgrade my overall mark.

This was a nice change from the bus, which is how I went to Penang last time. Nice to walk around and have access to a bathroom. It is WAY too cold, though. Intense AC blasting for the entire 4-hour trip -- I wished I had my winter jacket! I only had summer clothes on and was so cold I had a hard time concentrating or enjoying the trip. When I finally dug through my bag and found some slightly heavier clothing, I was more comfortable. My hands were icy cold (seriously!) for a good hour after getting off the train. Highly recommend bringing a hoodie or heavy sweater (as much as you can carry, really) for the AC! Hand warmers would work, too. For the operators: why don't you turn down the AC about ten degrees? It will still be chilly without people risking frostbite! :)

Train was smooth and pleasant. The best way to travel intercity - all the greenery! Did not try food but it looked decent and not too expensive (9 RM for meal set). Enjoyed the small peanut/cookie/water snack. Would be nice to be able to know seat direction when booking. We ended up with no window and other direction. However, the conductor was helpful and allowed us to move.
