PASIR GUDANG: Travellers going back to celebrate Chinese New Year next month are advised not to buy express bus tickets from touts.

Transnasional Express southern region sales operation executive Mohd Khairil Anuar Othman said travellers will expose themselves to risk if they buy tickets from touts.

He said passengers travelling on illegal express buses are not covered by insurance, unlike those using authorised services.

"Ticket touts are always taking advantage on those who desperately wanted to go back home to celebrate the festive season," he said at the launch of the company's express bus services plying the Pasir Gudang-Kuala Lumpur route at the Pasir Gudang Bus and Taxi Terminal here Thursday.

Mohd Khairil advised those planning to go back to their home towns to celebrate Chinese New Year to start booking their bus tickets now.

"Most express bus operators in the country have already started selling tickets for the Chinese New Year period," he said.
