The coach from Singapore
The company uses only the Super VIP coach for all trips. It is air-conditioned, painted yellow and black like a bumblebee, with a common television, single deck. 26 seaters, 2+1 seats per row.
You can purchase tickets directly at the office, and look at the bus schedule online (at the website provided below) prior to booking. However, the system appears unreliable, so check with the staff before booking.
When I last called, the phone receptionist was polite with my queries.
Golden Coach Express also has offices in Kuala Lumpur, and Hat Yai.
