KL to Melaka - bus or car hire?

Hi forum - heading away for the weekend, what's the best and easiest to Mekala and back? Car hire or should I get a bus? Any recommendations for bus companies?

Thanks

Express buses travel between Terminal Bersapadu Selatan(TBS) , the Bus Hub for KL & Melaka Sentral , Bus Hub for Melaka..

Bus journey between this 2 Bus Hubs takes 2 ~ 3 hours depending on traffic conditions & there are many trips every day..

Suggest Cepat & Cekap , KPB Ekspres & Mayang Sari for the bus companies.. seating arrangements for most of the others is 2x2 , 2 on the left & 2 on the right of the bus per row...

It is a but squeezy though the journey is not too long really..

TBS is reachable by LRT & KTM trains to Bandar Tasik Selatan Station , depending on where you stay in KL..

Melaka Sentral is also some distance away from the touristy areas in Melaka..

Take Bus 17 from Melaka Sentral if u have the luxury of time..

Otherwise it's 15 ~ 20rm by taxi or slightly lesser by Grab/Uber...

I have never travelled by car between Melaka & KL so i have no idea abt it...

Cheers

Depending on your luck , some buses may have an additional stop to pickup/dropoff passengers at the town of Seremban in order to fill up their buses...

There are no premier bus companies for this route , so just suck it up & relax , if they really stop at Seremban...

Cheers
