Those who frequent Pudu Sentral (formerly known as Puduraya) for bus trips take note. Over 500 north-bound express buses using the city centre base will be moving to the Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS) in Bandar Tasik Selatan come November 1.

The Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) said the move was expected to reduce congestion in Kuala Lumpur and would affect bus riders heading to Perak, Penang, Kedah and Perlis, The Star reported.

“Under this move, 545 of the 635 northbound express buses operating from Pudu Sentral will be diverted away from the city centre. This will help reduce the traffic congestion faced by commuters in the Pudu Sentral vicintiy and in the long term decongest the central business district in the city,” a SPAD spokesman said.
