Public Bus Service - Leaving Dhamma Malaya

Students are responsible for arranging their own transport for leaving the Centre at the end of the Course. It is strongly recommended that return bus tickets be purchased prior to arrival as tickets cannot be purchased at the Centre.

Students arriving at the Center without a return, or onward bus ticket will need to travel to the Kuantan bus terminal on last day of the course to arrange their onward journey. Kuantan, is approximately 22KM from the Centre. For those returning to KL, there is an option to take the Charter Bus Service from Dhamma Malaya to KL.

Students may make arrangements among themselves to share taxis that are going to a common destination to save on costs on last day of the course. (Note: a transportation counter will be setup a day before the end of the course before 12pm noon, students can then register at the counter for taxi-sharing arrangement.)
