Great news for those travelling to and from Malaysia’s East Coast as you will experience a new level of comfort with the all-new Alibaba Eskpres Luxury Bus Service Malaysia.

In February 2022, Alibaba Ekspres and Scania Southeast Asia signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to introduce a fleet of affordable luxury buses.

It is also not surprising that the Alibaba Luxury Express Bus in Malaysia will be launched at the right time, when domestic travel was opened in October 2021.

  1. Hi

    The bus conditions are perfectly new, but you can expect poor maintenance. I took the return ticket from Putrajaya to Kuala Terengganu for approx. 8 hours per trip. I opted to travel via bus this time because of the toilet inside. Unfortunately, it is not well maintained because you can see urine stain on the toilet seat and floor. You also need to get permission from the bus worker and let him hold the door while using the toilet. I’ve learned while traveling abroad that the bus operator would provide a cleaning service at the stop. Here they are neglecting that part, which is becoming a significant problem.

    Along the journey, they played loud music, and you could smell cigarette smoke too. Maybe the bus driver needs to entertain himself. I hope for improvement as I would pay an even higher price ticket if they make it exclusive.

    1. Hi Syed, thank you for your honest feedback and experience on the Alibaba Bus. I’m actually not surprised at how sometimes, we Malaysians tend to overlook things like this. At the rate we are going, looks like we will never progress in terms of international standards. Or maybe it will take us a much longer time to fully understand. Who knows? But thanks again.

  2. Tengah tunggu bus depan umt untuk pergi ke tbs bus malam ni pkl 1015 pm.. Skrg dh pukul brpa.. Call pun xblh.. Apa punya service la.. Baik pi jual lemang la lg bagus.. Menyusahkan orang je..

  3. This is just happened on 29th March 2022.
    My bus was scheduled to depart at 2215 but at 2100 I received a phone call from the bus company that my bus was cancelled. I was so furious but I believed I need to maintain my calmness. I have no choice but to accept the option given which was taking another bus from Penang to KL, then from KL to Kuala Terengganu in the morning. In KL they have stopped me at the bus driver’s cafe around 0430, I was alone and have no idea whatsoever, then only being picked up by the bus driver at 0800 for terengganu. Very first time I felt like my life was NOT Organise and I have lost 8 hours of my precious Terengganu time because I only going there for 2days 1 night. I will escalate this matter to Transportation Ministry. I know the main reason why my bus was cancelled was because they might not have enough passenger for that trip to make a full profit. Why put that trip on the list on the first place ?

    1. Hi Kent, I think this is the same problem like MAS or AirAsia, flights get cancelled or retimed because not full so passengers suffer. Oh well…. in Malaysia, things are sometimes like that.

  4. Hello alibaba, this issues happen right now on your bus. u orang buat keja macam macam mana? Aircond bus x jadi sepanjang trip! You ingt apa perjalanan pendek ke from tbs – kuantan ? Seriously you still run the bus without maintenance check first. Aih aku geram ni dahla panas pastu no circulation pulak tu. seriously suffocated. And you supposed to sampai tbs at 8:30 am and 9:45 am baru datang. what the ??? And satu lagi where is the proper platform for customer to voice out their feedback or anything? Nak cari alibaba punya contact number pon takde. Eh do business properly la. Sorry to say i cannot tolerate with this issues anymore especially the aircond yang tak jadi sepanjang trip ni.

    1. Hiya, thanks for your feedback and I understand how frustrating this can be. Lagi, macam you said, no official channel to voice out, therefore I hope Alibaba or any of the representatives will see this site and take the feedback provided here.

  5. Entertaiment service, + wifi tu scam je…android scren tab kat seat smpai kesudah server connecting… wifi xde pun dlm list… pasal entertertaiment tu banyak tipu jer…bas selesa cuma. Kema tipu part entertainment…malas nk cek toilet.. travel dr tbs ke terminal kuantan…

    1. Looks like banyak complaints pasal Alibaba Express bus service, banyak yang datang sini untuk voice out because no other way to complain. Hopefully someone from Alibaba or the bus company sees this.
