We didnt have the tickets (as we couldnt manage by the website) and there was a long line.

Important! If you are traveling by bus from Kuala Lumpur to Melaka, get your bus tickets in advance, as use to be busy and full.
We couldnt get the next bus as it was full so we had to wait in the station couple hours for our bus.
