Trans Iskandar Route BET2 connects Johor Bahru City Centre (JB Sentral) with the town of Ulu Tiram, via Tebrau Highway, Jalan Pandan and Jalan Kota Tinggi.
From JB Sentral Bus Terminal, the route serves many residential areas along Tebrau Highway, such as Taman Abad, Taman Tebrau Jaya, Taman Melodies, Taman Sentosa, Kampung Melayu Majidee and Kampung Bendahara, heading north to Pandan City, Tebrau City and Desa Cemerlang before terminating at Ulu Tiram Bus Terminal.
The route is identical to Maju 205 which Maju also operates, and buses can occasionally be seen carrying two sets of route destination plates. City Bus 188, JB Central Line 717 and S&S 1 ply exactly the same routing. In addition, Causeway Link 6B and Maju 227 also duplicate these routes entirely, terminating further north at Kota Tinggi.
Originally conceived as a bus rapid transit system, Trans Iskandar bus services are local and semi-express bus routes serving the greater Iskandar Malaysia region. Known as Bas Ekspres Transit in Malay, this gives rise to their common prefix: BET or BeXTRA.
BET2 commonly utilizes Hino AK and Higer KLQ6128G buses.
