Occupying a land area of 3.4ha in Bandar Meru Raya, Jelapang (Ipoh), just opposite the newly opened MYDIN Wholesale Hypermarket, this Ipoh Integrated Bus Terminal and Complex (or simply, Ipoh Sentral), built at a cost of RM38 million over the past two years, is slated to be fully operational in August, 2012. Date to be announced in due time.
This three-level terminal would serve as an inter-city bus terminal and would replace the current express bus terminal in Medan Gopeng. This means that if you are taking an express bus to Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Johor Bahru or other cities in Peninsular Malaysia, this is where you board your bus.
Additionally, there would be a business centre, food court and petrol kiosk. Basement car park is also available for passengers.
As this new terminal is quite a distance from Ipoh City, about 20 minutes’ drive away with smooth traffic flow, it would be (hopefully) connected to the Kidd Road Ipoh central bus station via shuttle bus service.
Personally, I do not look forward to the opening of this new integrated bus terminal. I think I would prefer the train more on my trips to the capital city. What about you?
