Bus Service S1 to KSL City Mall Johor Bahru

There is now a bus service that goes from the Immigration Checkpoint in Johor Bahru to KSL City mall. The bus number is S1 and it also goes to other malls like Holiday Plaza and Danga City Mall. I tried out the bus service and felt that it was convenient and affordable. So going to KSL City mall will now be a breeze with this new bus service. Formerly I always hopped into a taxi which cost about RM$7/- for a short ride to KSL City Mall.

JB Sentral Bus Stop

To take this bus, simply walked towards the JB Sentral bus stop beside the Immigration Checkpoint and wait for the bus to arrive.  At this bus stop, you can see many buses stopping here and the bus operator shouting out the bus service. Just focus on the S1 bus which is operated by Causeway Link Malaysia. The fare to pay is RM$1-50 to KSL City Mall and the return fare to Immigration Checkpoint is RM$1-60.

Information Update dated 21st July 2011 – this bus stop at JB Sentral is no longer in used. Go to the Bus Interchange that is directly below the Custom and Immigration Building. There is an escalator going down to this interchange. Take the escalator, you can see some shops below and next to it is the bus interchange. Wait for the S1 Bus to arrive – which is now every 30 minutes. Do remember to have the exact fare amount ready, as the driver do not have any spare change, unless you are rich enough to pay more to the Causeway Link Bus company.

The bus service S1 runs on approx. 20 minutes interval. Do prepare to pay the exact fare when boarding as the bus driver do not provide any change for dollar notes or coins. Overall the bus journey was reasonably comfortable and cheap too. The bus will stop at the side entrance of the KSL City Mall and it is the same spot for taking the return trip back to Immigration Checkpoint. At this moment, the bus operation hours is from 0850 hrs departing from Immigration Checkpoint and the last bus depart from KSL City at 2250 hrs in the night.
