We went Ipoh-Perak, Malaysia last week, by coach from Singapore. It usually takes around 7 hours to reach Ipoh. But this time, it took us more than 8 hours to reach there. I am going to rant about Transtar (transport company located at Lavender MRT station).
First, the designated coach was scheduled to pick us at 9pm, but the coach was half an hour late.
Then half way along the route in Malaysia, the air-con suddenly stopped working. The air got warmer and stuffy. It was only when Jacky informed the driver then he knew about it.
After a while, when we were all sleeping soundly, he woke everyone up again and asked those going Ipoh to leave the coach and board another coach. No reason given. We had to stumble with our heavy baggages in the dark along a muddy path near the forest to the other coach. When we got up to that coach, I had to crawl into my seat as the passengers in front had reclined their seats while sleeping.
Bad experience with Transtar. No star for them this time. -_-
We dropped at this small bus stop when we arrived in Ipoh at 6plus in the morning. As usual, we waited for our relative to fetch us.
This is an old public bus in Ipoh, picking up passengers at the bus stop.
