I took the bus from downtown Johor Bahru to the Jusco (hypermarket) in Permas Jaya. From downtown you take bus number 123 which a passenger told me runs every 20 minutes. Of the supermarkets I have been to so far in JB that Jusco has been by far the best. I have tried a couple Tesco’s and a Carfour and one other Jusco (a complete disaster area, the store was a complete mess, the signs said things were 50% off then when you took them to the counter they said they were not – 3 different items from 2 different locations).
The Permas Jaya Jusco store itself is very clean and orderly. The prices seem the best to me. The vegetables were great this time (the first time I really checked). A great selection and very fresh looking. And the prices were great. I picked up baby asparagus, peppers, potatoes, Japanese and “regular” cucumbers. I am not a cook. My cooking tops out at microwaving the asparagus for a few seconds, reheating some Indian food or putting peanut butter on a roll.
Unfortunately the Jusco is a bit out of the way for me. I want to get familiar with the bus transportation though so I will be taking some trips. I can’t find anything good online that explains the bus routes. If anyone knows of a good source of information please let me know.
I went to the Village Briyani Cafe today and had chicken briyani. It was great.

Hello, I stumbled across your blog while searching for info on Jusco Permas Jaya. Could you let me know exactly where to take the bus from JB Sentral to get there, and how long the ride took? (Sorry I know you posted this 3 years ago!)
Across from City Square mall on Jalan Wong Ah Fook you can catch a whole bunch of busses. Just ask around there and they will direct you to the right bus. I would guess it takes about 20 minutes (based on my memory).
They are not going to have the busses stop on Jalan Wong Ah Fook sometime soon, but I think they are still there. I’m not clear where they are moving the bus stop to.
Thanks for replying! Wish AEON would provide shuttle bus services to ferry shoppers.. but fat hopes of that happening!
Any buses from JB Sentral to AEON Permas Jaya?
