Bus trips from JB/Larkin to Mersing

Hi everyone. I'm going to Tioman for CNY. Would like to know if there's a chance I can get a bus ticket from Larkin bus terminal in JB to Mersing if I go there really early on Sat, 9 Feb. I've been calling the bus companies at Larkin, some say trips are all booked. I'm hoping that a seat would free up if I wait at the terminal. Got ferry tickets and room already booked. It's the bus trip I'm worried about.

Thanks in advance.

Highly advise you reach at Mersing jetty on early morning CNY ,there many possibility that you wont reach during that CNY..as many people will take holidays.

Take Night Bus and reach early morning...recommended Maju Express or Transnasional.

Hi Ghanesh. I'm hoping to catch a bus this afternoon, but if that doesn't work out, I'm open to taxi sharing. I called the ferry operators and was told there's just one trip per day, 8am.

Did you book via tiomanferry.com singapore site and is the ferry an is David? I booked via this service and got struck with 8am ferry, But when I check with my friend here and he said there so many of them and its easy to choose one upon arrival in mersing. Looks like I need not have booked ferry.. hmm no choice now...lets see...

Yes, same one. I got to talk to a female staff when I rang the number for 'David,' whom I looked for. Other websites say there are other ferries for Tioman, but I will try my best to catch that 8am trip.
