RWMF Shuttle Bus Information

Shuttle Bus Information RWMF

Every year, the Rainforest World Music Festival takes place in Santubong, Sarawak, and many people want to know the RWMF Shuttle Bus Information as it is the easiest way to go to the festival.

Previously, several companies were handling this, but in recent years, Red Bus from Kuching has been awarded the contract to ferry people to and from the event.

RWMF Shuttle Bus Information

This year, the RWMF 2023 shuttle bus information is similar to the last event. The service starts at 9.00 AM, ends at 1.00 AM, and is operated by BusAsia, a local bus company in Kuching.

Those staying in Kuching can catch the shuttle bus, which is on an hourly schedule to Santubong. There are two pick-up locations in the city area, which are accessible from several hotels here.

Shuttle Van Service from Santubong Junction to Sarawak Cultural Village

For those planning to drive, take a grab or a taxi, you must stop and park at the Santubong junction and take the shuttle van service.

If you have a special permit or pass, only then the police and security will allow you in. Otherwise, they will direct you to the side road to park and take the shuttle.

There is a fee for the shuttle service, and you can buy tickets from a makeshift canopy tent at the junction of Santubong.
