Hop on Hop Off Bus: Status regarding

Is it true that the Hop On Hop Off bus in Melaka no longer functions? We plan on visiting Melaka on a day trip late April & was happy to know about the Hop On bus.

Now that this seems unavailable, I am a little concerned about seeing the sights since we are not great 'walkers.' Not too inclined to hire the 'trishaw' as well.

I hope we are able to figure out the local bus system to visit the Portuguese Fortress, the Churches & the palace.

Any updates or alternatives to the hop on hop off bus in Melaka will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a ton

Hi

The bus operating now is the red mini bus called Panorama (RM1 per trip) and the one plying the historic site is number 17.

Most of the historic site is from Dutch square, so once you are there, there is hardly a need to take the bus unless you want to take the bus to Portugese Settlement and Melaka Sentral bus station all of which will pass by the Dutch Square.

Thanks AlexMcca for the response. At least there is an option for us which I would have never known, but for Trip Advisor & the people like you who so kindly answer queries.

Not clear about one aspect though - do we have to pay the bus each time we get on to it? That's still fine as long as we don't hop in & out too often & the fare itself seems quite minimal.

Cheers

Hi Shapes

Without the hop on and off bus ticket, you would need to pay each time you board.

As mentioned, there is little need for taking the bus except from station to city and to Portugese settlement. Buses are not frequent, so you may end up waiting too long under the sun (no shelter) in city center.
