KL's infamous inter-city bus station (Puduraya) is shutdown for refurbishment since April 2010. The temporary bus station is now located opposite the National Hockey Stadium at Bukit Jalil. So be sure you take into account of transport arrangement to and from this new bus station. I understand that there is a RM2 shuttle service between Puduraya and this new station. Otherwise, hop on to the Ampang Line LRT and alight at Bukit Jalil Station.
This arrangement will probably last for a couple of months.
When I arrived at KL past midnight I was hoping to catch the last bus because its more costly to take a cab going to KL. Luckilly, I was able to ride this bus. At RM 8 was able to go from KLIA to KK City
Hello folks, just a note to inform everyone that the Puduraya bus station in KL will be closed temporarily for four months from 19 March 2010 for upgrading work.
With the closure, travellers to the south will have to use the temporary bus depot at Jalan Hang Tuah near the Kuala Lumpur police contingent headquarters while the Duta Terminal would be used for travel to the north.

Take the Genting Bus in the lower ground of KL Sentral for your trip to Genting Highlands. Just pay at their ticket counter & wait for your designated time. You might be lucky if the driver permits you to board earlier. It depends if there's vacant seats. You can choose from various packages offered. I chose the bus & skyway cable car package. There's also a package that includes meal & rides at the park.
It is easy to go to Batu Caves on your own. No need to join a tour. Just go to Bangkok Bank near Central Market in Chinatown & look for Metrobus 11 with Batu Caves sign. It's very easy to find. This is applicable for those staying in the Chinatown area.
I took the SkyBus from LCCT Airport to KL Sentral for RM9. Book your SkyBus ride through the Air Asia website or just simply hop on the bus & pay as you ride. It was a very enjoyable & comfortable ride. Aside from SkyBus, there are also other bus liner servicing the airport at a cheaper rate of RM8.
You can choose train or bus. But for me, I prefer bus than train. Bus will take journey 5,5 hours. But train will take longer than bus.
There are several schedule bus from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur. I took the midnight one. And reach Kuala Lumpur earling morning at 6 AM. Bus is quite comfortable. I took bus from Golden Mile. The other bus station from Singapore to Malaysia is from Lavender Bus Station.
I never have experience take train from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur. But I m sure, from this website you can find the information about it.

There is a direct bus from LCCT to Puduraya, which is a walking distance to Chinatown operate by Star Shuttle (Star Wira).
It may be the fastest way, most convenience and cheap if you arrive at LCCT on the right time. and you don't have to go to KL Sentral and change another mode of transport. However, If you miss the bus, you have to wait for 45 minutes (to KL Sentral, you wait 15 minutes the most).
The bus frequency is on every 45 minutes, and they claim it takes 1 hour 15 minutes from Puduraya to LCCT with a stop over at Bus Station in Jalan Ipoh (3rd Miles a.k.a Batu 3). However, it is only a suggestive timeframe where they usually takes 1 hour and 30 minutes to 2 hours and 15 minutes especially during rush hours.
Going from Singapore to KL, take Causeway Link bus express from IMM (Jurong East, Singapore) to Puduraya Bus Terminal (Jalan Pudu, Kuala Lumpur). Tickets are as low as SGD25/way, SGD50 for 2ways. Busses used are 25seater coaches. This is the cheapest coach service compared to others for the Singapore-KL bus route.For more info, click on the given link below to the coach company's website. From the wbsite's homepage, click on"Express Bus Services" for more info on the Express Bus route.
If your in KL and would like to go to Singapore for cheaper cost, you can ride a bus from bus station in KL ( you can ask the cab driver to get you to bus station, i forgot the name of the station) this will only cost you around RM45. The fare back to KL from Singapore is just the same almost 45 but of course in Singapore dollars. Bring something to read or eat in the bus because this is a 5 hour trip.
From KLIA, if you wish not to spend too much on transportation, I suggest that you take an express bus to KL city. Known as Airport Coach, the fare is M$10.00 one way but you'd be given a M$2.00 discount if you purchase a return ticket.
How to use the bus service:
Upon arrival at the KLIA Main Terminal Building (except for the low cost flights operated by AirAsia which is on a different terminal) proceed to counter F6 at International Arrival Hall exit for tickets, from there proceed to KLIA Bus Station situated at Ground Floor, Block C annexe to the main terminal building (check the interactive map of KLIA at http://www.klia.com.my.) The express coach service operates at hourly interval starting from 5.00am to 10.30pm. Departure to KL Sentral is from Platform No 1. Traveling time is approximately one hour.
Arrival point and your onward journey into the city:
The bus will terminate at KL Sentral and from there one could catch either the Putra LRT service or the KL Monorail service (please refer to my KL Monorail tips for more details) to most part of the city.
Another comfortable way to travel to Kuala Lumpur is by luxury coach. I took one from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore. It offers almost everything that the airlines have to offer including the cabin crew service. As I took the 6pm coach, we had dinner served onboard. Plus points will be that it has more leg room and half way through the journey there's a half hour stop so you can alight the coach to move your muscles, freshen yourself and take a walk or a bite. Minus point will, of course be the time factor. It is a five hour journey. So if time is not a matter and if you cannot find a good deal on any airlines, give this one a try. I enjoyed my ride.
I agree with what stimix said. I have been to Batu Caves by tht bus. From Titiwangsa station, you just get off and take a very short walk to shuttle bus Rapid. From there, you take Rapid KL to Pinggiran Batu Caves. By bus, i guess you will need 15-20 minutes from shuttle bus Rapid to Pinggiran Batu Caves. You just need to walk very short then you will see Batu Caves.
