Blue Color - Can get both routes!
It is a comfortable air-conditioning bus ride to see downtown KL. I highly recommend it especially during non-rushing hours, 10:30am - 4pm.
You can only ride the bus at designated bus-stops " GOKL City Bus".
You can't miss this bus - it's Pink! Go-KL is the new free bus service in KL.
It'll take you to the towers, Bukit Bintang, Chinatown and more. No need to pay for the Hop on Hop off bus any more.
Check out the site below for the Go-KL Map..... or just look for the Pink Bus.
For those travelling with AirAsia, they will arrive in LCCT (Low Cost Carrier Terminal) located about 20 km from KLIA (KL Int'l Airport). Both terminals can be accessed with Taxi or bus. From LCCT arrival exit, go out and turn left where you'll find bus stops (with numbers and directions). It's on the second bus stop, and the direction is 'LCCT - MTB'. I guess MTB stands for Main Terminal Building or KLIA. You pay 1.5 Ringgit to the driver.
Once you arrive at KLIA, you will be on the gate one of 1st level of the terminal. Go upstairs for departure, pan pacific airport hotel, or the same level for continuing by bus to your next destination.
From LCCT to Genting Highland, you can take SkyVans. Sharing cost is 70 MYR per person.
But if you choose to Genting by bus, as far as i know, you can take bus from KL Sentral Terminal or at Pudu Raya bus station.
If you wanna go to Genting highland directly from LCCT, i suggest you to take Skyvans.
My wife and two daughters went to KL from Singapore on 01 July 2006 by Transnational Airconditioned Bus.
I got the tickets at Hentian Lavender on 27 June 2006 for S$40 for RT per person. I got the 8:30AM trip and the 12:00 midnight return trip.
We arrived at the Hentian Lavender 8:00 AM. I asked the bus operator if I can change the return trip to an earlier time. She said I have to pay extra but she moved it to 10:30PM without any additional cost. We waited for a while until the bus driver opened the door for boarding. The driver forgot to give us the entry form for Malaysia. We were delayed for a little time filling up the forms.
The trip was fine and good. Our first stop was at Restoran Jaya. The place need some cleaning. We reached the outskirt of KL by 2PM but the traffic got heavy and we reached Pudu Raya by 3:30 PM.
The rest of the time was well spent in the mall and the park. The twin towers of Petronas was wonderful and majestic specially at night. The other facilities were very good. It was worth all the time traveling. More Power to Malaysia.
We went to Hentian Pudu Raya by taxi who used the meter. The meter run only for 6 Rinngits but I gave all the entire 10 Rinngit for the honesty and courtesy of the driver.
Hential Pudu Raya was swarming with touts and persons offering so many things.
The bus platform downstairs was dark.
The bus left on time with half full capacity.
It stopped to pick up a person who turned out to be a driver or conductor wearing their company uniform. Along the way, passengers started to alight. The bus seats cover need to be shampooed. We reached the immigration of Malaysia. The escalator and airconditioning were not operational. There was only one staff. The immigration of Singapore had the airconditioning and escalator running. There were 3 staff at the counters and 3 policemen at the x-ray machine.
We reached Singapore by 3:30 am.
Our overall evaluation of our trip to KL is one of satisfaction and delight. Thank you.
RapidKL's newly introduced City Shuttle stage buses should come in handy for tourists. The 15 routes cover most major areas in Kuala Lumpur city centre.
The fare for City Shuttles is RM2 for the whole day. Buy a ticket on your first ride and just flash your ticket at the driver for all subsequent rides. Save for more, just RM7 for unlimited ride on all RapidKL LRT & buses throughout the day. Click here for route map.
All City Shuttle stage buses can be identified by a RED CIRCLE on the windscreen and side window near the front door. They are also numbered from 101 to 115.
City Shuttle stage buses depart from four "hubs", all of them thankfully served by rail transit. They are
[KL Sentral] (Kuala Lumpur's main rail transit station),
[KLCC] (where the Petronas Twin Towers are located),
[Titiwangsa] (at the Pekeliling Bus Terminal)
[Maluri] (adjacent to the Maluri LRT station in an inner suburban area east of the city centre) and
[Medan Pasar] (Main hub, opposite HSBC Building, 50m from Masjid Jamek LRT, for many routes converge at the heart of the city centre.
We booked a coach to and back from Kuala Lumpur under Konsortium Express. It cost us only $62. We left Singapore from Golden Mile Tower in the evening and we took a 26-seaters coach. It was comfortable enough for the trip that took us 5hrs to reach KL. They stopped us at Puduraya Centre and we took a cab to our hotel.
When we going back to Singapore, we went to Federal Hotel to get our return coach. It was a double decker bus which is nice. Journey went smoothly and i guess taking a coach to KL is not so bad after all. Konsortium Express is a reliable agent for coaches and very cheap.
Taking the hus to and from Kuala Lumpur is very easu these days after the new Pudu Sentral station has opened after a long renovation.
The bus station was formerly known as Puduraya, but is now just called "Pudu Sentral".
The station is located right in between Bukit Bintang and Chinatown, which is the two parts of town where most people travel from and that makes it very easy for the traveller.
There are lot's of companies travelling from the bus station and lot's of counters where you can buy tickets to pretty much all of the malaysian peninsula aswell as Singapore and Thailand.
Just be ware of the touts, especially at night.
These guys are mostly not of the honest kind and many of them sell fake tickets, aso just ignore them and go to the ticket window yourself.
Most malaysian long distance busses these days are very comfortable and the seats are comparable to what you see on business class on airplanes, so bus travel is fine in Malaysia.
This is a new service. The LRT is running shuttle buses to get people to/from the LRT startions and this is a big help! If you are staying in the Bukit Bintang area and want to get to KLCC, walking might mean pushing it a bit too much (its not very near). Going Via Taxi could mean parting with 8-10 ringits, and going via train means changing trains in order to land at KLCC. Neither of these options are as good as taking the LRT shuttle. The buses are brand new, airconditioned and u cant miss them with the LRT logo. From Bukit Bintang area u can catch a LRT bus (i think it was 116) that will take you directly to KLCC. The bus can be taken from its 'Starhill Galeria' stop (band in front of Marriott Hotel /Starhill Galeria, or the next stop which is diagonally across Lot10 shopping mall, opoosite the Pizza Hut restaurant (Jln Sultan Ismael and Jln Bukit Bintang junction).
Fare for the day is 2 ringits and u can re-se you ticket as many times as u like as long as it is on the same day! You can also use the same ticket for other routes of the Rapid KL City Shuttle Bus. How convenient is that?
