Best Express Coach … NOT!

June 21, 2005 by Galvin Tan in Daily Rants with 16 Comments


Having a girlfriend up north of Malaysia in Penang, I traveled quite up and down quite often. And those express coaches are my favourite mode of transport.

Even though we have cheap flights from AirAsia to Penang everyday, it’s not always that convinient for myself and Julea. Myself having to travel all the way to Sepang and then to worry about parking. And I don’t wish to disturb anyone just to send me to the airport. If I were to take the KLIA Express, it’s gonna cost me at least RM30 and that I still need to sort out the matter of getting to KL Sentral. Julea on the other hand, have to drive all the way to Bayan Lepas from BM just to pick me up and it gets very inconvinient for everyone…especially when I go up to BM quite often. So taking those express coaches are the best answer.

Although statistically, the chances of getting into a road accident is so much higher than taking an aircraft. I’ll still take my chances with these coaches reason because the express coaches nowadays are so much safer, comfortable and convinient. VIP coaches are the best. We are talking about 24 spacious seatings with good air-conditioning, VCD/DVD movies, large hand luggage compartment, comfortable leg space and for the finale, air-suspensions…making your ride more pleasant.

There are plenty of these express coaches travelling up north and down south nowadays. To name some of it, we have Transnasional, Nice Express, Super Nice Express, Seroja Express, Srijaya Express, Starz Express, Gunung Raya Express, Konsortium, Haider Express, Durian Burung Express and many more. I have to give it a two thumbs up because all of these express coaches travelled around Peninsular Malaysia round the clock. Though there are plenty of choices to choose from, I do have my preferred coach. I used to take Super Nice but now I go for Gunung Raya because their new coaches are with air-suspensions.

Competitions are tight, some VIP coach company offers online ticketing and some offers a much much lower price. So sometimes it’s pretty hard to choose which one to go with. But I found out the winner when I got back from Penang today. One VIP coach company that does the extreme and goes to the extend of taking care of all its passengers….





And the winner is FreeBury Ekpres. I read it as Free Bury Ekpres. If theres an accident, you get a free burial??? Yikes !!! o_O”

Don't get it wrong. Actually this name came up when their boss, a chinese ah pek said that their coaches are free of bullies, small size students need not be afraid. Ah pek said, "This is a FREE-BURI bus".
