Surabaya to Malang by public transport

August 2011 I traveled to Malang to visit Gunung Bromo.

We had flown to Surabaya in the afternoon and decided to go straight to Malang. We got a 20,000rupiah bus from the airport to the bus station - there is a booth to purchase tickets as you come through from baggage reclaim.

We were guided to the correct bus by helpful stewards and paid for our tickets on the bus - 20,000 rupiah per person again. The trip was about 2 hours.

The ticket has a list of times which are regular between 6.10 and 9.10 then 11.50, 12.40, 15.10 and regular again til 18.10, 20.50, 21.40.

Once we got to Malang there were a couple of touts but again bus station employees directed us to the local minivans. There are a range of routes with prices around 3,000 rupiah.

It was a painless experience, with more help than hindrance.

The loose translation of "peron" is "platform". It's commonly use to refer the stage in which you embark the train or bus. So in this case, similar to airport tax, the "peron fee" is meant as retribution to maintain the terminal (in this case, you're paying Rp200 to access the waiting area inside the terminal).

Hope that helps and thanks again for your clarification.

Hi, I confirm that the fee is Rp 200 and it applies to everyone entering the intercity bus terminal. And you should really ask for the change. It's a shame the way they corrupt everything here :(
