Day Trip to Johor Bahru - Taking Shuttle Bus from JB Sentral to KSL City

After clearing the custom, just follow the signs leading to JB Sentral, I think after one bridge crossing, looked out for this signboard and the escalator on the left. To head to City Square Mall just walk straight ahead(no need to take any shuttle bus) but as we planned to visit KSL City Mall first, we need to take the shuttle bus from the bus terminal below the custom.

From the top of the escalator, we could see the bus terminal, so we walked towards the bus terminal.

There are many buses going to different parts of Johor Bahru and other malls.

To go to KSL City Mall, we need to take S1 shuttle bus.

The bus fare from JB Sentral to KSL City Mall is RM1.50, need to have exact fare to drop into the coin box beside the driver, cause the driver will not return any change.

Dont worry about missing the mall, the bus will terminate at this mall for about 20 minutes before heading back to JB Sentral.

You can take note of the bus timing to plan your return journey from KSL City Mall back to JB Sentral. The place where you alight is the same place where you take the bus back to JB Sentral.

You can also take BUS IM17 by Maju Bus Company to KSL Mall from JB Sentral, read about it from my another post.

Hi Alice,

Any idea how to catch a bus from JB CIQ to Pelangi Leisure Mall (Giant)?

alicesg said...

Hi YE Lum, you can get the info. from wikitravel.

http://wikitravel.org/en/Johor_Bahru

Quote: Pelangi Leisure Mall, 148 Jl Serampang. 2-storey mall located in Taman Pelangi. The main tenants are: Giant hypermarket, Golden Screen cinema, Superbowl bowling alley and McDonald's. Open daily 10:30AM-10PM. Causeway Link's CT1 bus (runs between Kotaraya bus terminal and Bayu Puteri, via City Square) passes by this mall.

Unquote: I have not visited this mall so cannot confirm the accuracy of the info.

Hi Nimantha Baranasuriya, you are welcome. Glad you have no problem going to the mall. :)

Alice Tang said...

Thank you very much, I read ur info briefly and remembered S1, so when I was just at the bus terminal jb central, I saw a bus S1 coming, just waved, the bus driver stopped, I got on, smoothly reached KSL,, saved my time and taxi fee as I asked people around city square area, all answered "take taxi ",,,,

alicesg said...

Alice Tang, glad you have no problem locating KSL. Do read my other posts on other places, it is easy to travel on your own but do remember to register with your embassy to inform them for emergency purposes. It saves a lot of $$$ travelling on your own and the freedom to explore where you want.

Hi
Just wondering..wat if we do not have exact change of 1.50rm...but will b traveling in a big grp of bout 10..will they accept notes?

We wanna go holiday plaza..I suppose this S1 bus also get there based on the signboard...any idea is it also 1.50rm?

alicesg said...

Yes, they accept notes, just drop into the box beside the driver. You need to give exact fare, the driver will not return any change. Rm1.50 for the whole journey regardless where you alight. If you need smaller notes, can change with the fellow passengers or some kiosks in the bus terminal.

Hi, the nearest mall near the immigration is City Square Mall. After clearing the custom, just follow signs that say JB Sentral and you will come across a bridge/linkway to City Square Mall.

Hi Kate, Yes the place where you alighted is also the same place you board S1 back to JB Sentral. Check the timing of the bus schedule of the board. (Note: Not sure if the timing is still the same)

kate said...

hi This is Kate Thank for reply me & answer my question. but other Question to ask you cause me first time go to ksl. just to how many bus i need to alight when board Causeway link S1 way bus?

alicesg said...

If the bus schedule is still the same as when I took the last time, dont worry about where to alight. The bus will stop at KSL for about 20 minutes to pick returning passengers back to JB Sentral. If in doubt just ask the driver to alert you to alight,they can speak English.

alicesg said...

Hi Kate,
Just to add this info, KSL Mall is the last stop for the journey from JB Sentral to KSL Mall. So no worry, everyone has to get down at the last stop.

alicesg said...

Hi Kate, the shuttle bus could be referring to S1, they never mentioned anything about free. I never heard about any free shuttle bus. The fare for S1 is RM1.50 for one way.

Siti Zubaidah said...

Hai alice...which bus must i get from bayu puteri to ksl??

alicesg said...

Hi Siti, I have no answer to your question as I am not familar with other bus routes except from JB Sentral to KSL Mall and vice versa.

Janis Tang said...

HI, if i am heading to city square,how many stops would it be from custom?

alicesg said...

Hi Janis, If you are heading to City Square from the custom, you dont have to take any bus, after clearing custom, just follow the signboard indicating JB Sentral and/city Square.

You can view my post on how to head to City Square Mall.
