Millions of travellers visit Malaysia yearly, whether they are from continents away or local folks getting around for work and holidays. The demand and amount of travel done on a daily basis have been incredible, and the idea of building a new terminal to help decongest the traffic in the city centre of Kuala Lumpur came to life in 2011. Located alongside the Bandar Tasik Selatan station (BTS) in KL, Terminal Bersepadu Selatan is Malaysia’s most extensive bus terminal to date. Famously known as TBS, the station was launched to the public on the 1st of January 2011 and has helped to decrease the road traffic jam by allowing all express buses to stop here for all pick-ups and drop-offs. TBS has definitely eased up the travelling process for many, Easybook is also here to make your ticket bookings just as hassle-free.
Having the TBS and BTS integration enables travellers to reach their destinations easily under one roof with easy connection to the Express Rail Link (ERL), Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM), Rapid KL and the new Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) train stations. This also means getting there is super easy as well with the mentioned services above that are available across Kuala Lumpur that can easily be reached within half an hour from KL Sentral, for example.
The well-connected TBS transportation hub is 6 levels high as below:
1st floor - Bus terminals
2nd floor - Departure and Arrival platforms
3rd floor (Concourse level) - Passenger lobby, ticketing counters & convenient shops
4th floor - Restaurants & retail shops
5th & 6th floor - Parking
