A significant number of Malaysians use public transport to travel between the cities. Apart from rail transport, many Malaysians and tourists prefer to use express buses to go to the different cities in Malaysia. This is because Malaysian cities generally have better road connections compared to rail connection.
Currently, inter-city rail connection only covers certain cities along the west coast region of Peninsular Malaysia. Therefore, people going to other parts in Malaysia will need to use express bus service to reach their destination.
Express buses in Malaysia can be categorised to several categories, namely single decker and double decker. Besides, the seat arrangement is also different, with most long-haul routes will utilise the buses with 2+1 seat arrangement. On the other hand, shorter routes will generally utilise the smaller 2+2 seating arrangement.
