Public bus from Sandakan Airport to Batu Puteh village

Hello

My partner and I are touching down in Sandakan in a couple of months and need to head straight to Batu Puteh village where we are participating in a Homestay programme.

I understand there are public buses which travel through Batu Puteh, stopping at the Batu 32 / Mile 32 checkpoint. What I'm trying to figure out, is whether there is a bus that goes directly from the airport to Batu 32, and whether anything like a timetable exists, so I can figure out whether we can feasibly get a bus.

If we can't, then does anybody know what our best option would be to get there? The homestay programme has offered to arrange a car for us for 180 MYR (it's a 100km journey), is this a reasonable price, or would we be better to get a taxi from the airport?

Any advice would be gratefully received!

Thanks

Lucy

I am also thinking of making this trip and volunteering in that villiage. Can you tell me how your experience went?
