In 2013, University Bus Ticket Group– otherwise more known as UBT Group – was officially established. When the bus ticketing company started its operation in Skudai, it was merely aimed towards allowing UTM Skudai students so that they are able to purchase bus tickets without much fuss. Under the management of Kusbim Resources, UBT Group has gone on to become a bus agent with more than 10 branches and sub-agents across Malaysia after gaining plenty of attention by various bus operators in the country. Now with over 30 operators under the UBT Liner’s belt, it quickly became a fast-growing agent. Alternatively, you can also purchase the UBT bus tickets online via Easybook as well.
Many companies are built for the sake of business, but UBT Group have different objectives in mind. Besides sales of bus ticket within the university compound, UBT Group wants to help the students by creating part-time job opportunities at the campus, reducing journey cost for students, maintaining their safety, preventing fraud transactions and also to create awareness towards the usage of public transport for university students. With the presence of a UBT bus ticket counter available on the campus, it automatically addresses all of the matters mentioned above. From being just a business that operates in one campus, it has now reached multiple campuses in Malaysia.
Some of the operators under the UBT Liner service include Mahligai Express, Causeway Link, Adik Beradik, Jasa Pelangi, Mayang Sari and Darul Naim Express have signed up to help serve university students with their purchase of bus tickets at the comfort of the campus compounds. Each bus operator will definitely provide you with comfortable seats for your long journeys to go home.
The main departure point for UBT Group bus is located at terminal bus Taman Universiti which is near UTM Skudai with two main routes provided. The first one would take you to either Shah Alam or Melaka from Skudai itself. In order to headout on the Shah Alam route, UBT Liner will go from Taman Universiti, Johor to the first drop-off point Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS) before stopping at Klang, then ending the trip at Shah Alam itself.The Melaka drop-off point starts with the UBT Group bus departing from Taman Universiti, Johor to make the first stop at Muar and then Merlimau before the last point.
With the rise of UBT Liner’s business, their routes and services have expanded to many other states from Johor to others including Perak, Penang, Perlis, Selangor, Kelantan, Terengganu, Pahang, Kedah, Kuala Lumpur and Genting Highlands, as well as going all the way North to as far as our neighbouring country Thailand.It is without a doubt great to see how much UBT Group has boomed from one university when it first started to where they are today with over 100 bus routes available to choose from.
Besides Tun Aminah and JB Larkin Sentral serving as the departure points for UBT Group bus in Johor, Taman U Skudai has also become a main pick-up point. Bus departing from TBS from KL goes to locations such as Kemaman, Dungun, Kuala Terengganu, Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin (UniSZA), Kampar, JB Larkin, then also Dannok and Hatyai at Thailand.
