USM Bus Route

For those who have been to USM (Universiti Sains Malaysia) or will go to USM as en exchange student soon, knowing about the bus route inside USM is necessary. This might be an unimportant post for most of you. I mean, who would post about bus routes? Especially, bus that only covers specific areas?
But this was quite important for me, because as an exchange student, bus is a necessary vehicle (besides walking on foot) to go around USM. So, without further ado, here are the bus routes:
This picture shows how big USM campus is, I got lost more then once.

PALAPES – Indah Kembara (hostel) – bus stop in front of Jabatan Keselamatan (Security Department) – DK S,T,U,V,W – Bakti Permai (hostel) – USM Hospital – SK I,II,III,IV/DK A,B,C – School of Languages, Literacy & Translation (SoLLat) – School of House Building & Planning (HBP) – School of Management (SOM) – Eureka – Fajar Harapan (hostel) – Indah Kembara- PALAPES
PURPLE

RED

YELLOW
Aman Damai II (hostel) – DK S,T,U,V,W – Bakti Permai (hostel)- USM Hospital- SK I,II,III,IV/DK A,B,C – School of Languages, Literacy & Translation (SoLLat) – School of House Building & Planning (HBP) – School of Management – Eureka – Fajar Harapan (hostel) – Aman Damai I (hostel) – Aman Damai II (hostel)
Note: the color of the bus is the color of the card in front of the bus, NOT the color of the whole bus.
Also, if you’re staying or will stay at either Desasiswa Restu, Saujana, or Tekun, there’s also a bus that goes around this mini hill so that you don’t have to walk up the hill on active school days. The route started at a bus stop after you cross the bridge from PALAPES to RST. The route goes like this:
USM RST
Bus Stop (USM RST) – Tekun – Saujana – Restu – Bus Stop (USM RST)
There are only one kind of bus that goes through this route, so they’re all the same.


Because the earliest class starts at 8 in the morning, the bus should be available around 7.30. If there are no busses, then you should definitely enjoy the morning and walk to your class instead. Which is definitely enjoyable as u can see the sun rising above the trees and the buildings. I used to walk when I had early morning class as it wasn’t that hot yet. If you would walk at a later point of the day, you are at risk to arrive in you class room soaked in sweat. As for the last bus, it’s around 10 PM, so you should finish your errands before that, or take a student cab which are available on call and are very affordable.
Happy learning at USM!

  1. I remembered my first days at USM not knowing how the busses worked, then all the local students were either shy or in a hurry to their own classes. Somehow I managed to and made friends. But I definitely preferred walking instead of the bus :P
