KUALA LUMPUR: Congestion in the city centre will ease greatly with operations at the Pudu Sentral bus station scaled down.

Some 545 buses on routes to Perak, Penang, Kedah and Perlis will be moved to the Bandar Tasik Selatan Terminal effective Nov 1.

A Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) spokesman said the move was to ease traffic at Pudu Sentral and its vicinity, and the city’s central business district in the long term.

Known as Puduraya when it was built in 1976, the terminal serves about 1,000 express buses daily. Buses that enter the terminal usually queue along Jalan Pudu, causing serious traffic congestion.

The Bandar Tasik Selatan Terminal presently operates 1,300 bus trips daily (arrivals and departures). At maximum capacity, it can handle 5,000 trips a day.

The terminal is linked to the KTM Komuter, Sri Petaling LRT and ERL KLIA Transit lines.
