These are my usual ways of travelling between KLIA and KL Sentral.
From KL Sentral to KLIA:
---> I usually take the KLIA Express RM35. It is very fast and comfortable.

Take the KLIA express to and from the airport.
If you arriving to Kuala Lumpiur International Airport (not the budget terminal) then the fastest and most efficient and pleasant way to get in to the city or to the airport is by using the KLIA express.
It's a highspeed train that goes from KL Sentral to the airport without any stops and it takes just 28 minutes which is almost an hour fatser than taking the bus.
The train has free wifi on board and is very comfortable.
The downside is the price which is 35 Ringgitt for a oneway ticket so you will have to make up your mind if you want to save money and take one of the cheap shuttle busses or you want to go fast and comfortable with the KLIA express.

The most convenient way to get to/from the airport is by means of using the KLIA Express train service. It will take you to/from KL Sentral, which is the main station in KL, in under 30 min.

Easy gateway to KL and everything it has to offer
The KLIA Ekspres is a great introduction to Kuala Lumpur. Jump on the high speed service at KL airport and less than 30 minutes later you arrive at KL Sentral.
Cruising at speeds of up to 160kph the train is a great way to travel into the city centre in comfort and safety. The air conditioned carriages are nicely appointed with comfortable seats and plenty of space for luggage. On the short ride you will pass farmland and then the many high rise estates which have been built on the city outskirts to house the urban population.
Single tickets can now be purchased online prior to travel. Once purchased you will receive a copy of your ticket sent to your email. An adult single one way fare costs RM35 and for children RM15. You can also purchase return tickets on the day of travel at ticket counters or vending machines.
Trains depart from each station (KLIA and KL Sentral) from 5am and continue at 15 to 20 minutes intervals throughout the day until the last train departure (from both stations) at midnight.
The KLIA Ekspres is a great and reliable way to get into Kuala Lumpur quickly if you are thinking of spending a few hours in the city as a quick stopover between flights.
Fast & Easy
From Kuala Lumpur international airport(not the low cost one) this is sure the best way to get into the city centre. I used to take taxis and they take one hour or longer during the pick hours, this express train takes you to city centre in 30 minuts. During the pick hours you have one train every 15 minuts. The service goes straight from airport to KL Sentral(main station) from where you can take MRT or taxi to reach your final destination.
Price is 35 ringit (about 7€) and the train is on the 1st floor of the airport.
KLIA Express from City to Airport
This is an alternative for folks who do not wish to catch a cab from the airport into the city.
The train is at Level 1 of the airport.
You can purchase the ticket at the KLIA Ekspres ticket counter near Baggage Claim, after you had cleared Immigration. Ticket is for RM35 per pax per trip. (The return fare is RM70)
As you get out of customs in the Arrival Hall, turn right and take the lift down 2 levels. Frequency is every 15 minutes per train.
Journey time into the city is 28 minutes. There are only 2 terminals - KLIA and KL Sentral.
I prefer this journey. The train is clean, quiet, cool and bright. If you arrived in the day, you get to see rivers, ponds, farm lands, buildings along the route compared to the monotony of the greens and rocks on the roads if you take a taxi from the airport.
Just before you exit KL Sentral Station, there is a taxi counter where you can book a taxi at specific prices to bring you to various parts in the city. (Or you can choose to connect to the inner city subway networks) Official receipts would be given for the taxis. No haggling over prices and meters with the taxi drivers. Fuss and pain-free way to enter KL.

Fast and hassle free
KLIA is infamous for cabbies overcharging tourist. They can charge MYR100++ just to Kuala Lumpur. So to avoid all the hassle and the headaches, KLIA Express is the better way to travel from KLIA to Kuala Lumpur (KL Sentral station). It costs RM35 per trip per pax. And the journey only takes 28mins. It is air-conditioned, clean and hassle free. You will see signages leading you to the KLIA Express in and about the airport (even before you reach your luggage claim area). It's underground. Take a lift down and when you exit the lift, don't panic to see that it's very quiet and empty. Find the ticketing booth which is located right at the other end. The track may be very long but the train is just probably a quarter of the track.

Can roll away bags allowed in train?
I guess it depends on how big the bag is...as long as you don't block the walk way or you can write in to: CustomerEnquiry@KLIAekspres.com
In the train they have overhead racks for light luggage and tiered racks for large luggage.
Hope you have a good journey.
Airport Train to City Centre
One of the easiest way to get to Kuala Lumpur(KL Sentral) is via KLIA Express. Upon arrival, you can either purchase your train tickets in the baggage claim area or when you arrived in KL Sentral. To board, turn to the right after immigration and go towards a lift where you will find the KLIA Express signage. Take the lift to the KLIA Express level. Adult fares: US$10 one way Child fares: US$4.00. Train runs every 15 mins and the journey takes only 28 mins. 1st train from KLIA starts 5.00am and last train leaves at 1.00am. 1st train from KL Sentral starts 5.00am and last train leaves 12.30am.

KLiA Express vs Airport Limos
If you just have a few bags, the KLiA Express (RM35 one way) is the fastest and most comfortable way to get to the city (28 minutes?).
They have uniformed porters that will help you carry your bags into the train.
Give them RM10 and they will actually sometimes ride with your luggage all the way to KL Sentral station (where the new Hilton and Le Meridian Hotels are) in KL and then help you unload your luggage!
You can also check in your luggage at KL Sentral station for your flight back 2 hours before departure if you use Malaysian Airlines then just hop on the KLiA express to the airport when its time.
Sometimes during the travel fairs such as MATTA at PWTC they have promotional booths where if you buy a ticket they give you one free so buy several tickets (they are valid for 6 months) and this will save quite a bit of money
However if you have tons of luggage then it is advisable to use the airport limo.

The Fastest Train in South East Asia
If you want to make sure that you will get your plane and won't be stuck in the traffic jam, just take the KLIA Ekspress.
Being the fastest train in South East Asia, it takes only 28 minutes from the city (KL Sentral station) to get to the airport, 70km away from the city. There is a train every 15 or 20 minutes from 5am to 1am and it costs 35 RM per person for one way (a bit expensive though). Of course, there are other ways to go to the airport but if you go for this option, you will spend a good journey in brand new trains with screens displaying the news or some advertisements about KL!
THERE ARE MANY REASONS TO TAKE THE TRAIN:
* You will save time as compare to a taxi
* You will save some money if you are 1 or 2 people
* If you stay at Meridien or Hilton hotels, KLIA Ekpress is just in front of these 2 hotels.
* From KL Sentral, it is convenient to go the the city centre (Bukit Bintang or KLCC) as you can take the Putra LRT (the tube), the monorail or a cab and you will be there in less than 10 minutes.
* You can check in your luggages at KL Sentral at least 2 hours before your flight if you travel with Malaysia Airline. It is a good idea when you check out of your hotel at noon and have a flight at 11pm for example. You can still go and check in your luggages in KL Sentral, spend the rest of the day in KL and go to the airport at the last minute.
* From the airport, if you don't have time to buy a ticket before jumping into the train, don't worry: you can buy it on arrival at KL Sentral! This is very convenient as you don't have to wait another 15 minutes just because you miss the train while buying your ticket.
