Where can we take you?

Kuala Lumpur - Getting Around

Kuala Lumpur's efficient and economical public transport system is second to none. With its joined-up interchanges you can speedily move from monorail to bus, train to taxi.

Rail

The city's commuter lines run into and out of the city with fares ranging from RM 1 to RM 6 per journey. They're connected to the city's LRT (Light Rapid Transport) system (an ultra-modern electric light railway system) plying the main tourist, shopping and commercial sights downtown. The KL Monorail is the city's 'circle line' (although, in fact, it's really only a semi-circle, it does cover the major tourist spots downtown).

The three-line system, while run by different companies, offers a comprehensive network that's cheap, safe and reliably efficient, with fares starting at around RM 1.4 and services running every couple of minutes.

You can pick up tickets in major malls, tourist information centres and stations.

Bus

It's probably unlikely you'll navigate the city's complex and intermittent public bus services (Rapid KL) during your stay. Far better to make use of the KL Hop on-Hop off bus service for tourists - which has a number of stops downtown and in the city's outlying districts. Tickets are valid all day and you can alight and return to the journey as many times as you like. Expect to pay around RM 40/RM 18 for children. Services leave every half an hour or so from stops throughout the city, such as the Petronas Towers, Bintang and Times Square.

Taxis

Official taxi ranks can be found throughout KL, and get busy during peak times. You can phone from your hotel, or from any main city centre location but ensure that the meter is running. If it's not, get out and hire another. Most trips in and around the centre shouldn't cost more than RM 7 - try to establish a price before you set off.

Fares start at RM 3 flat fee and around RM 1 for every km thereafter. Yellow Premium taxis are more expensive and a touch more comfortable. Look for cabs around KL Sentral, Menara KL and Sunway Pyramid, but expect to pay time and a half after midnight.
