Malaysia's first integrated bus terminal links with other forms of transportation in order to provide fast and efficient connectivity for travellers. Fajar heads on down to find out what it takes to build a state of the art transportation hub.
Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS) has started its operation on 1st of January 2011 as an fully integrated hub that connects several modes of transportation. It is located just outside Kuala Lumpur, a short trip to the south. Here we are taking a closer look at the buses that arrive and depart from here. All bus companies that start their journeys from TBS will head to the southern sector. The idea behind TBS is to support Pudu Central Terminal and Jalan Duta Terminal. This is to avoid the congestion in the city and to make it easier for travellers to connect to other areas. The terminal hosts a total of 43 bus operators and sees some 500 buses daily. TBS manages between 10 000 to 12 000 passengers a day.
