Overview

The Pudu Sentral (formerly Puduraya) is the main bus station terminal in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It was opened in 1976 by the late former Prime Minister Tun Hussein Onn.

Long-distance buses arrive and leave from Pudu Sentral. Pudu Sentral is especially busy during public holiday and festive periods.

As of 2006, Pudu Sentral had undergone a renovation costing about RM3 million. Facilities such as a hotel, bank, and food stalls are located in the Pudu Sentral building.

On 27 August 2011, the Puduraya bus terminal was renamed as Pudu Sentral in keeping with its modern and new look on par with an airport.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said the new name was a suggestion from a follower on his Twitter account. The current operator of this bus terminal is UDA Holdings Berhad. It now servers north-bound buses.

Background and History

Aging Puduraya was closed for upgrading work beginning March 2010. After several postponements, the bus terminal finally re-opened on 16th April 2011. It received a well-deserved major makeover, after having been in existence for 34 years. An expanded waiting area (across three floors) with 1,200 seats and plush carpeting was put in place, among other things.

Passengers go down to the boarding platforms via 22 new gates (tunneled stair-well) on the ground floor. The waiting area, ticketing counters, retail outlets and food court are now fully air-conditioned (and fume-free). There are adequate electronic departure/arrival status screens to keep passengers posted on schedule and timings.

Puduraya Hotel above the terminal is also being refurbished and will be renamed Ancasa Express Hotel. With Puduraya’s re-opening, the Bukit Jalil Temporary Bus Terminal is now closed. Puduraya will handle northbound inter-city and express buses. Many of the buses here will also use Hentian Duta as a secondary station where passengers can also board and disembark. The hastily built (temporary) Terminal Bas Jalan Hang Tuah in front of IPK KL will become a bus holding area. On 27th August 2011, Puduraya was renamed Pudu Sentral.
