Info: Aging Puduraya was closed for upgrading work beginning March 2010. After several postponements, the bus terminal finally re-opened on 16th April 2011. It received a well-deserved major makeover, after having been in existence for 34 years. An expanded waiting area (across three floors) with 1,200 seats and plush carpeting was put in place, among other things.
Passengers go down to the boarding platforms via 22 new gates (tunneled stair-well) on the ground floor. The waiting area, ticketing counters, retail outlets and food court are now fully air-conditioned (and fume-free). There are adequate electronic departure/arrival status screens to keep passengers posted on schedule and timings.
Currently, there is no clear labeling at the ticketing counters nor is there any (easily) available information on the bus companies and their destinations. With so many ticket counters, it can be very confusing for the first-timer. Most of the shops and the food court are not operational at the time of writing. Several drink and snack kiosks are already up and running, though.
There are two information counters and a Pondok Polis on the ground floor. The Genting Highlands taxi stand is still there on the first level of the car park. Resort World’s coach to Genting Highlands and Star Shuttle bus to LCCT airport operate from Puduraya as well. Parking rate for the multi-level car park is RM 3 for the first hour and RM 2 for every subsequent hour. Grace period is 15 minutes.
Puduraya Hotel above the terminal is also being refurbished and will be renamed Ancasa Express Hotel. With Puduraya’s re-opening, the Bukit Jalil Temporary Bus Terminal is now closed. Puduraya will handle northbound inter-city and express buses. Many of the buses here will also use Hentian Duta as a secondary station where passengers can also board and disembark. The hastily built (temporary) Terminal Bas Jalan Hang Tuah in front of IPK KL will become a bus holding area.
On 27th August 2011, Puduraya was renamed Pudu Sentral.
The nearest LRT Station is the Plaza Rakyat LRT Station located at the back of Puduraya, connected by a covered walkway. It is served by the Ampang Line (Star LRT) and it travels to Hentian Putra and the Pekeliling Bus Terminal. On the other direction, the Sentul/Ampang Line also takes you to the South Integrated Bus Terminal at Bandar Tasik Selatan.
To take the Kelana Jaya Line (Putra LRT) to KLCC, Gombak, Wangsa Maju, KL Sentral or Petaling Jaya, walk to the Pasar Seni LRT Station in front of Central Market. Opposite it is the Klang Bus Station (‘Toshiba Station’) @ Bangunan Pasarama Kota for buses to Klang/Port Klang.
