Residents in the northern states of Perak and Penang might find this operator familiar.
Eramesra Ekspres, based in Parit Buntar, Perak has been operating out of the town some five years ago. Through its permit, Syarikat Pengangkutan Eramesra Anak-Anak Perak Sdn Bhd, it currently operates an active fleet of about 15 buses. They have plans to add more buses to its current fleet as it caters to increasing demand and to explore new sectors.
Initially, Eramesra operates mainly from Parit Buntar and Butterworth, Penang. Over the past five years, it has grown as it adds new routes from the two towns to several other destinations such as Seremban, Melaka, Klang and Shah Alam. In the near term, they are looking to launch services to Alor Setar, and further south to Johor Bahru.
Although most of their buses are bought second-hand, they were refurbished and equipped with new fittings to make it more comfortable for their passengers. Refurbishment works were done in-house at their workshop, located just a stone’s throw away from their operations HQ.
