For the frequent traveller using the Bus Express in Malaysia should be know that the online bus ticket purchasing is not that convenience and famous in Malaysia as compare to the Air Ticket. Whenever you want to purchase any bus ticket you may need to call to the ticket counter to reserve your ticket or you need to walk in to the ticket counter to make your purchase. This is not convenience for most of the people.
With the grown of e-commerce in Malaysia, now you can easily purchase bus ticket and make your full payment online such as how you purchase air ticket or movie ticket. Just pay your ticket online and print out the statement with the purchase code to collect your ticket 30 minutes before departure time. For the online payment, currently those bus ticketing web site are working with Web Cash as well as Malaysia No. 1 payment gateway – iPay88 to accept the Credit card payment online.
For me, this is pretty cool and I’m looking for through out the long time (my degree final year project was the online bus ticketing system about 6 years back, that time e-commerce is a brand new word in Malaysia.)
Here are some of the Malaysia Online Bus Ticketing web site:
More bus ticketing system is coming as status as the E-ticketing system provider portal at http://www.eticketing.my such as Tasik kenyir Express, Edaran Express, Pancaran Matahari, KKKL Express, Durian Burung Express, Shira Express, Mayang Sari Exprss, Express Perdana, Budaya Express, and so on.
Hopefully one day all the online bus ticketing will have the promotion as Air Asia where you can get a very very cheap ticket if you book the bus ticket in advance for some time.
