Sungai Nibong Bus Terminal has been serving as the main long distance express bus terminal since it's opening in May 2005. Many express bus companies relocated from Komtar, Georgetown to Sungai Nibong Bus Terminal. Though some still operate from Komtar, they have to pass through Sungai Nibong Bus Terminal to pick the other group of passengers before departing from the Island to their designed destinations. This is an advantage for tourists and other passengers who stay in hotels in Georgetown since they will still be served by buses operating at the terminal.
