For daily bus, you can just hop in and let the conductor know where you are heading. The bus will leave from Kemaman Town -> Kijal -> Kemasek -> Kertih -> Paka -> Dungun. The fee from Kemaman to Dungun is about RM 5 (if I am not mistaken. It has been a long time since I hop into this buses).
For express bus from Kemaman direct to Kuala Terengganu, you can buy the ticket at the counter in Kemaman Bus Station. The fee is about RM 15.00 or below. The last time I bought was about RM 13.00. So I guess, as todate, the fee might be around that figure.
