Bus Business, Transnasional MY, Jan 12, 2020
Generally it was fine. However, managing the luggage needs more attention as passengers had to put their own stuff without any support.

A good ride!
Bus Business, Transnasional MY, Jul 18, 2019
For some reason -- at the half-way lunch stop we were told to transfer to a different bus .. a lower quality bus. We were combined with the people already on that other bus. :( We had our preferred seat in the front on our original bus. Getting stuffed on the other, lower quality bus we had to sit in the middle of the bus. Not happy about it.
Bus Business, Transnasional MY, May 21, 2019
Bus is very comfortable.
Bus VIP, Qistna Express (Qistna Express), Apr 17, 2019
Everything went smooth
Bus VIP, Qistna Express (Qistna Express), Feb 23, 2019
The bus was delayed but the attendant staff were not able to tell me how long it will be delayed. All they said were you just have to wait after 2 hrs, we will refund the money. We didn’t have 2 hrs to wait so they suggested that I bought new tickets for different bus lines for the next departure time and we did. But before the new bus comes, the delayed bus arrived so we hopped on that bus and we wasted 2 new tickets that we just bought. We wish that the staff can be informed better for communication with passengers.
