Oct 2008 Latest Update: Bad experience with Transtar! It’s no longer as good as what I used to think of it when I first took Transtar early this year.
We bought two tickets for a Super VIP Coach with 24 seaters from Transtar Travel to Ipoh for Chinese New Year at S$88 per ticket. This was the first time we took Transtar and I like the pick-up location as it is just above Lavender MRT – conveniently located only a few stations away from our house. The coach left Lavender at 9:30pm, went by Tuas Checkpoint and left the checkpoint at around 10.15pm. We reached Ipoh the next morning at 4:50am, 5 Feb 08. I was so soundly asleep in the coach when the driver yelled “Ipoh! Ipoh!”.
