Bus VIP 24, StarMart Express, Mar 27, 2020
Bus smelled cigarette. Driver lighted up cigarette in the last few km to Melaka Sentral. Although he exhaled out through the window. It didn’t help. It also seemed like he took a few puffs off e-cigarette.

Comfy ride and good driver. Arrived/departed KLIA ½ hour late. No signage to indicate which platform to wait at (unlike at Melaka Sentral). Advertises itself as a Massage bus, but doesn’t work.

Everything went smoothly, easy to find the gates at the KL Bus Station. Departured some minutes later than scheduled but passengers were kept informed. Direct trip to Melaka, no stop for toilet or snacks. AC level ok, we had our jumpers on. Bus clean and comfy, enough space for longer legs too.

The bus service was on time, but the bus itself was in poorshape.The seat handrests were loose and were coming apart. The bus was carrying so many cold storage containers with some bottled.drinks, and so many plastic buckets with things in it that there was no room for passengers to put their suitcases. All the passengers were struggling to stuff their luggage in the storage space. There was no help or effort by the driver to help accomodate the luggage. it was a struggle by all the passengers to put the luggage inside.
