Sungai Nibong Bus Terminal

Buses from various locations in Malaysia, Thailand and even Singapore stop at Sungai Nibong Bus Terminal to let passengers who purchased tickets to Penang Island to disembark. Located around twelve kilometers away from the city centre of Penang’s capital, Georgetown, this terminal does not have much to offer travellers in terms of facilities.

Compared to the former bus terminal’ at KOMTAR, Sungai Nibong Bus Terminal is indeed a great improvement in terms of available facilities. There are toilets, a reasonably sized waiting area and a number of coach counters over at the first floor. Tickets to various locations like Langkawi in Malaysia are sold at these counters. You can even buy your ticket to places like Hat Yai or Bangkok in Thailand.

The only problem is that all these areas are usually open to public after 5.00am to 5.30am. Until then, you can sit on one of the benches at the ground floor or the place where you got off from the bus. There is an official taxi stand right beside the bus terminal. If you were to take one of the taxis to KOMTAR or Georgetown city centre, it may cost you around 20 Malaysian Ringgit.

Compared to taking one of the local Rapid Penang Buses like Bus Number 401, which costs 2 Malaysian Ringgit per person for a trip to KOMTAR. Since an automated fare system for bus is used, having the right change for fare prior to getting into the local bus is important.

Make sure that you print the purchase confirmation and take it along with you for boarding the coach to Penang.
