Bus Fares = OK but ...


Bus fare usage in Kuala Lumpur is averaged at RM 1.70 per ride base on the following usage rates.
50% Zone 1 RM 1.10
30% Zone 2 RM 1.90
10% Zone 3 RM 2.50
10% Zone 4 RM 3.10
Typically one may need to take 2 bus routes to reach destination. So one trip is RM 3.40 or Return trips are RM 6.80

1 week or 5 working days would mean a cost of RM 34 or RM 136 a month or RM 1,632 a year.

Travel within Kuala Lumpur using private transport is average at half an hour. Relatively using buses for the same destinations would increase the travel time to 1.5 hours; include waiting and walking time.

There you go, if you use buses as your main transport, you may need more than RM 1,500 a year and 720 hours commute time. You may save some money yearly but in the cost of 480 hours.

Do you bus ?

I have almost forgotten how the bus looks like already. Hahaha...

Honestly bus in Malaysia is way not convenient. Most Malaysian can't live without their own transportation.
