Trains run every 15 minutes during peak hours and every 20 minutes at all other times.

KLIA Ekpress VIP Service

Passengers arriving on a budget airline (such as Air Asia), will arrive at a different airport - KLIA2. Transport to the city is very similar, with a fast train reaching the city in 33 minutes.

 

KL Airport to City by Taxi

There are two types of taxis in KL – red budget taxis and blue executive (premier) taxis. A ride from the airport to KLCC in a budget taxi will cost around RM 100, a good option if there is more than one passenger. To book a cab, head to the prepaid taxi counter and buy a coupon there.

Taxi counters can be found at Transportation Hub on Level 1 in KLIA2, and on Level 3 in KLIA1.

Getting Around KL

Train

The Kuala Lumpur Light Rail Transit (LRT) and the monorail are two of the main transportation modes to get around in Kuala Lumpur. There are four main lines, the Kelana Jaya LRT line, the Ampang LRT Line, the KL Monorail line and the Sri Petaling line. Information on fares and the routes can be found at: https://www.myrapid.com.my/default.aspx

Taxi

Taxis are a convenient way to travel from one place to another in KL, but always insist on using the meter, do not be conned into negotiating for the price.

Grab (ride-sharing)

Similar to Uber, Grab is very popular in South East Asia. It can be a better alternative than taxis since it is a lot cheaper and widely available, does not involve negotiation on the price and payment is cashless. Download the App in the iTunes Store and on Google Play. https://www.grab.com/sg/
