  10. Hey Jom Naik Bas! i’m thinking of booking a singapore chartered coach to malaysia and i would like to ask for your opinion.. there’s this oncoming favourites for this coach named SC CHIVALROUS. i look at the coach and its big. What coach is this and what do u think should i book it?

  11. Hi Daniel.

    “SC Chivalrous” refers to the bodywork model of the bus, manufactured by SC Auto Industries. There various operators in Singapore which operates the bus, and usually built on the Isuzu chassis. Seats are of the usual high-back coach seats and configured in a ‘2+2′ seating arrangement. We think it’s a very comfortable bus and should be worth your trip. However, it’s best to charter Super-VIP class buses with the ‘2+1′ seating arrangement for longer distances such as KL, Genting and beyond.

  12. haha thanks for it, but im still confused by the coach difference. why i saw some coaches engines are from even from MAN, volvo, Scania K-series & Isuzu engines. How am i going to difference the coach? o.O”

  13. Hi Daniel.

    Most buses will have its make and emblem on the front of the bus. There are, however, those that can’t be identified that easily. Checking with the owner will help you identify the make of the bus.

  14. May I ask whether the new Lionstar Classic,have toilets in it?

  15. Hi Ivan.

    The Lionstar Classic coach does not have any toilets onboard.

  16. wanna know, any bus go to Genting direct from JB-Larkin? How much is the price per head? If possible, can send me the schedule also?

  17. Hi honeybunny.

    It’s not known if there are regular buses from Larkin itself, but there are such trips that depart from Merlin Tower near the railway station and City Square. 707 Travel Group operates on this route. Perhaps you could give them a call to check on the prices and departures.

  20. Hi yan.

    We are not aware of any direct bus connections between Mersing and Pontian. The best alternative is to hop on a bus to Johor Bahru and transfer to an express bus to Mersing. Some of the express bus that serves JB-Mersing are Transnasional, Maju and Causeway Link. We are sorry as we are unable to guarantee that you will be able to reach the destination in 5 hours.

  34. AFC 2222 by Transtar Express is a Mercedes V8 has been sold and is now operating daily from Golden Mile Complex to Hatyai at 7pm. Transtar livery is no more there but the coach still remain in its previous colour that is silver.

    One of Transtar Express newest coach is PC55C a Scania 420 Euro-4 Engine. It operate as Solitaire and normally depart Hock Seng Terminal at 715 or 745 am to Genting.

  35. Hi Eric.

    Thank you for sharing the information with us. However, we’d like to rectify the information.

    AFC2222 is not a Mercedes V8. It was operating under the ThaiStar name after being disposed of Transtar’s fleet. However, it was again spotted in KL recently wearing the ‘Super Coach’ titles. We believe it has ceased operating the Singapore-Hatyai service, and currently serves the domestic services in Malaysia.

    The actual registration is PC55L. It is a Euro IV Scania K380EB coach, not 420 like its pre-Euro IV sisters.
