S1 Shopping Bus
The S1 shopping bus service is designed to attract tourists and provide greater convenience to passengers. It passes through shopping malls like KSL City, City Square, Danga City Mall, Plaza Pelangi and Holiday Plaza. In addition to these shopping malls, the S1 shopping bus also passes along three hotels namely; Hotel Grand Paragon, 11 @ Century Hotel and Mutiara Hotel. And as such, hotel guests from the aforesaid hotels could also take this bus to any of the shopping complex or to JB Sentral from their respective hotels and vice versa.
How does the bus operates
The S1 shopping bus operates from JB Sentral bus interchange which is directly below the Customs and Immigration Building using an escalator going down to this interchange. Wait at bay no 2 for the S1 bus to arrive. It operates at about 20 minutes interval and while waiting, there are many shops selling food and drinks near the bus bays. The bus fare is between RM1 – RM2 depending on where you wish to alight.
Taking a ride on the S1 bus is convenient and affordable. Taking a taxi from JB Sentral to any of these destinations may cost between RM10 – RM15. So there is no reason why one wouldn't take the S1 bus service from JB Sentral to any of the shopping centers or hotels as earlier mentioned.
