The trip starten out great! The TBS central was similar to an airport, and everything went smooth there. Our buss Journey was initially ok. Spaceous seats and not much to complain about. Around halfway through the trip the bus stoped at a station and, without explanation (our driver did not understand any english), we had to change bus. This bus had a lower standard. Filthy and without seatbelts.

Bus left on time. Made the scheduled rest stop and arrived without incident. The seats are wide and comfy, plenty of leg room. The bus arrives in Butterworth at the same location as the ferry. You just go one floor up the escalator to connect to the ferry to Penang island. Easy as pie. The instructions for the ticket are simple and you just go to a ticket counter at the station to get them printed.
