Kumpool

I have always been passionate about public transport. So, it is such a joy to see Kumpool operating in my own constituency.

Kumpool is an e-hailing bus-pooling service with fixed pick up points. Although it doesn’t come directly to your doorstep, they do have many stops in the vicinity.

With 70 stops around Bukit Indah alone, I’m sure one of the Kumpool stops is near you.

A passenger can choose from the app where to embark and disembark, and the bus gets you from point to point.

When I tried out the service with Stulang state assemblyman Sdr Andrew Chen, the bus/van arrived within minutes at our pick up point at AEON Bukit Indah bus stop. It was quick and convenient.

The Bukit Indah line helps residents to move around. It is especially helpful to those who enter Singapore by bus. Kumpool connects them from their housing areas to the bus stops to board the Causeway Link buses.

I hope this service will be a success, and services for other parts of Johor Bahru will be introduced very soon.

Malaysia needs better public transport and Malaysians will opt for public transport if it is improved tremendously.
