Ipoh to Lumut by Express Bus

As you can see from my posts this past week, I was in Lumut/Pangkor for a short vacation recently.

I had thought of taking the public transport to Lumut from Ipoh but subsequently changed my mind and drove down instead. It’s always more convenient to have your own transport on a road trip, eh?

Anyway, I did my research on express buses that ply the Ipoh to Lumut route, and am glad to share my findings here for the benefit of readers.

There may be other bus companies that cater to travellers between Ipoh and Lumut that I am not aware of, but here are the bus schedules and ticket fares from two reliable bus companies.

Perak Roadways have more frequent buses to Lumut from Ipoh compared to Sri Maju. However, from the conditions of these buses, they don’t look as comfortable. Also, unlike Sri Maju buses that shuttle directly from Ipoh to Lumut and back, they need to make a few stops in smaller towns along the way.

  1. thanks so much for sharing on Lumut transport information.
    (1) any idea how far is Lumut terminal to the ferry terminal to Pangkor and how to go about it (cost too)?
    (2) how far is the bus terminal at Ipoh to Ipoh airport and how to go about it (cost too)?
    many many thanks again.

  2. Hi Cindy,

    1) The Lumut Bus Station is just across the road from the Lumut Jetty which ferries passengers to Pangkor.

    The two-way fare is RM10 per adult and RM5 for children 5 – 12 years of age.

    You may refer to this post also for the ferry schedule:

    2) The two bus stations that I mentioned above is about the same distance from the Ipoh Airport.

    The best transport is by taxi. Distance is about 7km between the airport to either one of the bus stations.

    Hope this info helps.

  3. thanks so much for your speedy reply.
    taxi from the airport to the bus terminal in Ipoh is about 7km but how much approx. does it cost? Sorry as I am from overseas and not familiar with local matters. Do taxis go by meters or must bargain?
    many many thanks again.

  4. Hi Cindy,

    I am not sure about airport taxis. Do take into account that taxis coming out from the airport may be more expensive.

    Update: Was just at the airport today (16th July). The fare is RM25 for a trip to town, whether to Sri Maju or Roadways bus station. It is flat rate and they do not use the meter.

    Also, the taxi can carry four passengers only (excluding driver).

  5. Hi Emily,

    How long is the bus journey from Ipoh to the Lumut jetty?
    I’m planning to take a bus from Ipoh to the Pangkor Laut Resort jetty at Marina Island Pangkor. I understand the new jetty is a little bit further away from the common Lumut jetty.

  6. Hi Heng Wai,

    The bus journey takes about 2 hours or slightly longer.

    Yes, there is another jetty within walking distance from Marina Island Pangkor Resort & Hotel. However, the bus terminal is no where near it. You can request for the hotel to pick you up from the bus terminal, for a small fee, of course.

  7. Hi there. I’m aalia. I would like to know if there is any bus from terminal amanjaya ipoh to seri iskandar or lumut , after 6 pm. Can you tell me asap? Thanks.

  8. Hi Emily
    We are going to Pangkor on the 1 May. What is the taxi fare from Ipoh airport to amanjaya bus terminal?
    We are taking a bus to Lumut. Is the Roadway bus still operating from Gopeng Medan to lumut?
    Thank you

  9. Mavis,

    I am not sure the fare but you can try to Uber estimate…. taking a taxi will be slightly more expensive.

    If you board the bus at Terminal Amanjaya, you can try Perak Transit.

    Medan Gopeng is no longer operating.

  10. Hey. Emily. May I ask is it any bus from sitiawan go to ipoh tonight after 7pm? Is there any bus avaluable? Appreciate for all your help and sharing.
