    by chiabh Written Feb 23, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    hop on hop off city coach...

    2007 began with the introduction of the Kuala Lumpur Hop On Hop Off City Tour coach service... Tourists can have easy access to 40 major tourists tourist attractions within the city by just taking one coach... The coach, which is a double-decker bus, comes with a semi-glass roof for better and clearer view of the streets and scenery of the city is equipped with on-board commentary in eight languages... The city tour is modelled on the "hop on, hop off" concept which allows ticketholders to hop on and hop off the coach whenever and wherever desired at any of the 22 stops...

    The coaches operate from 8.30am to 8.30pm daily passing 22 stops at 30-minute intervals... The ticket is valid for 24 hours and priced at

    MYR38 each (MYR32 each for purchase of 5 or more tickets)
    MYR17 for students, senior citizens and disable person
    Children under 5 travel free.

    Malaysian MyKad holders need to pay only MYR17 during the school holidays...

    Tickets can be bought on the bus and from travel agents, major hotels, official agents that display the logo or through the website.

    Nice bus outside (former) KTM station

    Even at a premium price of S$37 or RM60, the trip is more than value for your money. Boarding from Copthone Orchid hotel along Bukit Timah, the coach ride of about 5 hours takes you across the Second Link and along the N-S highway, only stopping by Ayer Keroh rest place for 15 mins to give your body a welcome stretch. The entire trip's pampered with complimentary food, refreshments and movie onboard. The alighting point at the former KTM station is well connected to many parts of KL, a far cry from the usual Pudu Raya station with heavy traffic congestion and polluted fumes. For the best deal, buy single return tickets from both side to enjoy the savings, and consider forking out RM10 extra and upgrade to NICE 2 (semi-double deck), the only Business Class travel on the road.

    Arriving or leaving KL by bus...

    by shellseeker Written Sep 12, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Arriving or leaving KL by bus at KL's Putra Bus Station next to PWTC (very important: Not Puduraya anymore, only South bound passengers go to Puduraya now!). The trains leave from KL Sentral (north in direction of Butterworth and Thailand, south to Johor Bharu and Singapore).
    The public transport system within KL is speedy, comfortable and uncomplicated. While buses and cummuter trains move huge numbers of people, travellers will probably find most joy with the fast and frequent and cheap Light Rail (2 lines: Star and Putra LRT).
    Taxis are a really cheap alternative to the mass transport options.

    SkyBus

    SkyBus

    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.

    Genting Bus

    Genting Bus

    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.

    Bus from LCCT to KL

    by muratkorman Written Jan 30, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are 2 operators working on the route between LCCT (low cost carrier terminal) and KL Sentral (KL central station). This route is the most convenient and cost effective. The operators are Skybus (Air Asia operated) and Aerobus. Having tried both, I can say that Skybus is more organised, comfortable and punctual compared to Aerobus. For budget travellers, Aerobus can still be an option as it costs 8 RM one way while Skybus costs 9 RM. The trip takes around 50 minutes to 75 minutes depending on the traffic. Once you reach KL Sentral, you can go anywhere in KL by taxi, bus or metro.

    (ii) trunk (blue): feeder bus that connects you from suburb area to city center. Fare: RM2 (whole day trip);
