TBS Kuala Lumpur to Malacca Destination Reviews

It was on time from TBS to Malacca at 8am but it was delayed 1hour 10min from Malacca to TBS.(originally departure time was at 5:30pm but we departed at 6:40pm) There was no explanation how long it will delay and why. We were just waiting knowing nothing about it. And I noticed our previous buses in this company either cancel or delay as well. So if you have some tight plan, I wouldn’t recommend this company. Choose Kkkl, Melor and Delima.

Good service ... On time ...
Bus Express, Mayang Sari, Feb 15, 2024
The journey from KL to Melaka was supposed to be 2h12min, but the bus departed from KL more than 2 hours late. There was no communication on this at any point and no apologies. Overall it meant most of the day lost to what should have been a quite short journey. The bus seats were comfortable but there were no seatbelts after the 1st row. During the journey, the bus driver answered his phone and had a call with the phone by his ear, while driving the bus quite fast.
Bus Express, Mayang Sari, Jan 30, 2024
Extremely dangerous driver in bus from Melaka Sentral to Kuala Lumpur TBS on January 28th 2024, 21:00 hours trip. I think he was even drunk. Driver was talking all the trip using headphones and doing group video call. I even told him several times to stop, as everybody was looking at him and feeling unsafe. He told me ok (impolitely) and just kept talking. He even started yelling at me when the trip ended. He shouted: “complain complain!” while laughing. Incredible this can happen when someone is responsible of 20 people lives. I have reported this to the company, but they don’t seem concerned. I really encourage you not to use this company. And I really encourage 12goAsia not to work with this company. Just look all the bad reviews here and in Google.

Everything was great. The bus was about 10 minutes late at the terminal, but that was great as I was also quite late myself. If you're traveling from Kuala Lumpur, you should really arrive at least 30 minutes early. There were extremely long queues at the counters. But maybe it was also because it was a Sunday. Otherwise, the bus ride was normal. Seats were comfortable and with enough leg room.
