Before that, all express buses stop at Komtar and Gelugor, these two places did not have proper space for buses to stop and it were cause traffic jam.
So that, government decided to relocate all express buses at Sungai Nibong Bus Terminal. The express bus companies at Komtar only for selling bus ticket. However most bus companies provide transfer service for their customer, sending them to Sungai Nibong by car or van.
