From JB Sentral, regular services operate from JB CIQ (170, CW1, CW2) and JB Sentral Bus Terminal (several routes) A free local bus service, P101, plies between JB Sentral and Larkin (for Bus Muafakat Johor cardholders only).

One thought on “Larkin Bus Terminal”
City Bus Service number 3 is missing from your Larkin Bus Terminal page.
I took that City Bus 3 from Bus Terminal at Pontian to Larkin paying the maximum fare of RM 5.30. They have changed to smaller and newer bus.
You have a picture of the bus in your picture on Pontian Bus Terminal..https://landtransportguru.net/pontian-bus-terminal/
Hope the web page will be updated. Thanks.
