Today in Transportation History – 2013: Kuala Lumpur’s New Bus Terminal Opens

Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak officially opened the Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS), which is currently the main long-distance bus terminal in the Southeast Asian country’s capital city. TBS is adjacent to the Bandar Tasik Selatan (BTS) railway station, a stop and interchange for KTM Komuter, Sri Petaling Line, and the Express Rail Link’s KLIA trains. The BTS station and TBS are linked by a pedestrian bridge and have been integrated to form an intermodal transportation hub.

TBS was one of three integrated transport terminals planned for Kuala Lumpur and has become the only one of them to date to begin operations. While originally intended to be Kuala Lumpur’s terminal for southbound buses only, TBS also now handles northbound and eastbound buses that previously served older terminals in the city.
