Gelang Patah Sentral Bus Terminal

Gelang Patah Sentral Bus Terminal (often simply abbreviated as GP Sentral) is a bus terminal located in the town of Gelang Patah, Malaysia, west of Johor Bahru. The small terminal serves both local Johor Bahru bus routes and intercity bus routes.

The terminal name is somewhat a misnomer; it is located at the outskirts of Gelang Patah and roughly 3.5km away from the town centre of Nusa Perintis.

Background:

Gelang Patah is a small town 25 kilometers west of Johor Bahru, and located just off the Second Link Expressway. At the outskirts of Gelang Patah town is Gelang Patah Sentral Bus Terminal (also known as GP Sentral), catering to both local Johor Bahru bus routes and intercity bus routes. It is located near the intersection of Pontian Highway and Jalan Ulu Choh.

The terminal name is somewhat of a misnomer, as it is located roughly 3.5km away from the actual town centre of Gelang Patah, which is at Nusa Perintis. The terminal took over operations from the former Gelang Patah Temporary Bus Terminal on 1 Feb 2015. It was previously located at Taman Nusa Perintis, flanked by Medan Nusa Perintis, Medan Nusa Perintis 1 and Medan Nusa Perintis 2 along its perimeter.

GP Sentral is part of the Taman GP Prima development, a new cluster of 4-storey shop offices and a residential building (still under construction). Another nearby development, Iskandar Putri, is also being planned.

The Terminal:

GP Sentral Terminal features 13 end-on berths for buses, with waiting areas and a ticketing booth next to the bus park. The terminal building features small retail outlets on the semi-basement floor. The ground floor, accessed by a flight of stairs, contains a canteen and bus ticketing booths. A notable feature of the terminal is a centralised ticketing booth for multiple coach operators.

Behind the bus terminal is parking spaces for cars, and a petrol station.

Bus Services:

The terminal serves local bus services to Gelang Patah town, Kota Iskandar, Tanjung Pelepas and Pendas. Another bus service leads to CIQ 2nd Link for journeys to Singapore via transferring to other bus services.

Despite taking over operations from the old terminal, some bus services were not shifted, such as CW3, CW3L, CW4S and LM1, which continue to terminate at Taman Nusa Perintis today. Passengers should take Service 666, CW4G, IM-05 or IM-07 to Taman Nusa Perintis and transfer to these services.
