Golden Coach Express: Singapore to Kuala Lumpur by Night Bus

Golden Coach Express is a long time player in the Singapore – Malaysia bus market, and has its own stronghold of loyal customers. Like seriously, the check-in staff were all smiles and joking with the regular passengers as if they had an unwritten membership. On top of that, even when I’ve booked my ticket about a month before departure, only two single seats were available to choose from in the bus.

The midnight buses to Kuala Lumpur departs from Concorde Shopping Centre, though some day departures leave from City Plaza too.

My online CatchThatBus ticket booking printout needs to be exchanged for the actual Golden Coach ticket at the office before boarding the bus. Pretty professional – my full name, mobile number and booking reference were printed on the ticket as well.

The coach was ready outside for boarding at 11.30pm for the 11.59pm departure, though the driver requested everyone to wait first while he parks the bus properly at the kerb first.

My bus ready for departure from Concorde Shopping Centre. A total of 3 buses will depart from here at midnight, serving the following routes:

  • Singapore (Concorde Shopping Centre) – Kuala Lumpur (Berjaya Times Square) – Bidor – Tapah – Kampar
  • Singapore (Concorde Shopping Centre) – Kuala Lumpur (Berjaya Times Square) – Gopeng – Ipoh Amanjaya – Sungai Siput
  • Singapore (Concorde Shopping Centre) – Kuala Lumpur (Berjaya Times Square) – Lumut – Sitiawan – Kampung Koh – Sri Manjong – Teluk Intan

The interior of my Golden Coach coach. There is ample legroom to stretch out as this is a 27-seater Super VIP bus (ie. 9 rows of seats) with Orient seats, one of my favourites for Malaysian buses with the calf support that props up till almost flat.

A power socket is available at every window seat, but there wasn’t any power coming out of it.

The bus took the Tuas Second Link, and with the usual Friday midnight jams, took around 1.5 hours to clear to the Tanjung Kupang side. But since I was the first one to reurn to the bus, I had slightly more sleep first…

… because the next thing I knew, I’ve arrived at Berjaya Times Square.

The bus arrived at 5.30am, with a lot of waiting taxis. Feel free to skip them though, you can wait for the first Monorail at 6.00am. But since there wasn’t any washrooms around this area, I got an Uber to KL Sentral to freshen up first.
