Lumut to Melaka - most direct route

We will be in Malaysia in December this year and would like to know the most direct route to Melaka from the Lumut area.

We are a family of four planning to visit family in the kampong of Ayer Tawar (close to Lumut) before heading off to Melaka.

What would be the most direct route, keeping in mind we would like to be semi-comfortable and not waste time? Would it be better to transit in Kuala Lumpur and catch a bus to Melaka to break up the journey?

I have heard that there is a bus from Lumut to Melaka. Has anyone taken this? How long did it take and would it be worthwhile for a family? Price approximations?

Any suggestions would be greately appreciated!

Hi Emma

The route is served by Transnational, the largest bus operator in the country. You can book in advance but booking is open within 1-2 months before departure. You can browse the schedule and fare for Aug, Sep for now to get an idea.


In case you have problem with ticketing with you card, you have to buy when you arrive in Lumut.
