Step 4. Purchase your ticket.
If you purchased your bus ticket online, you will still most likely have to collect your bus boarding pass. At the terminal, they have specific counters to convert your online ticket to an official boarding pass. T
If you haven’t purchased a ticket online, look for the bus company you want to travel with and purchase one to Melaka. The cheapest bus to Melaka from Kuala Lumpur is 10 RM (approximately $3.00 USD), whereas the average ticket price ranges from 13-15 RM.
Step 5. Walk to your designated boarding gate as your bus will pick up passengers from there.
Once you have your ticket, follow the signage to your boarding gate. TBS is set up sort of like an airport, therefore it’s easy to navigate.
Step 6. Enjoy the ride!
The bus ride from Kuala Lumpur to Melaka should take anywhere from 2 hours to 2 hours and 40 minutes. If traffic is light, expect it to take around 2 hours.
Step 7. Arrive at Melaka Sentral, the main bus terminal in the town.
Most buses going from Kuala Lumpur to Melaka terminate at Melaka Sentral. Make sure that this is where you want to get off.
Step 8. Start sightseeing!
Most tourists that visit Melaka want to go to Jonker Walk – which is right in the middle of Melaka’s famous tourist area.
If you also want to get to Jonker Walk then either take a taxi or the public bus from Melaka Sentral. We recommend taking the public bus which conveniently drops tourists off at Dutch Square (100 meters from Jonker Walk).
