BUS
B1 Puduraya Bus Station: Main bus station. Jl. Pudu near Pudu Raya Hotel. Very crowded and very hot. Has a post office (A/c - everybody comes here to escape the heat), ATM. left luggage(7:00-22:00 2RM/piece/day. Closed for lunch break!) food court, tourist police.
Many companies running various types of buses with different timetables to most cities in mainland Malaysia. It's confusing. Check around until you find the most suitable one. Buses leave from the basement - a horrible enclosed area that stinks of exhaust fumes.
Standard bus is AC, 42 seats; "Business"= VIP 24-25 seats; "Executive"=SuperVIP has 21-24 seats with WC, snacks & nonstop.
Transnational bus Co. is recommended by locals. It has a ticket office at Central Market Annexe, 9:00-21:00. Much more relaxing place to purchase your ticket than extremely busy Puduraya stn. VIP buses are less frequent than A/C buses.
