Public Transportations in Kuala Lumpur

How do you usually commute? According to the survey conducted by Rakuten Insight in 2019, about 61 percent of Malaysian respondents stated that they owned a car. In the past years, the car ownership rate in Malaysia has been higher than in neighboring countries. 

 

The other day, we have discussed the things to consider before buying a car. In conjunction with World Car Free Day, which is celebrated on September 22 annually, we would like to further explore the public transportation options in our capital, Kuala Lumpur. 

 

Rail-Based Public Transport

 

Our rail-based public transport covers the transportation from Kuala Lumpur airport to Kuala Lumpur city center with the comfortable KLIA Ekspres, connects cities and suburban areas along the Penisular Malaysia with KTM Commuter, and links all the areas within Klang Valley with the Rapid KL Rail that consists of MRT, LRT, BRT, and Monorail.  

 

Bus-Based Public Transport

 

Rapid Bus is the largest bus operator in Malaysia operating mainly in urban areas of Klang Valley, Penang & Kuantan. As of August 2022, the Rapid KL service brands unit of Rapid Bus operates 112 normal routes and also 69 MRT Feeder Bus routes. For frequent Rapid Rail and Rapid Bus users, you can subscribe to the My50 Unlimited Travel Pass that offers 30 days of unlimited rides on Rapid KL LRT, MRT, Monorail, BRT, Rapid KL bus, and MRT feeder bus services in Klang Valley. 

 

Besides Rapid Bus, there are also free bus services provided by the government, namely Go-KL. For travelers who want to get a general picture of the Kuala Lumpur city center, the KL Hop-On Hop-Off bus is the best option since it covers all the attraction points in the city center. 

 

Beam

 

Beam is a mobile app that provides e-scooter services in big cities. Users just need to use the app to locate the nearest Beam, pull the scooter’s kickstand up and place both feet on the board and start riding it around the city. 

 

Grab

 

Founded by Anthony Tan and Tan Hooi Ling in 2012 as the MyTeksi app based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Grab is the biggest technology startup in Southeast Asia that provides users with transportation, food delivery, and digital payment services via a mobile app. 

 

Though it’s Car-Free Day, when you really need a car to travel around, you can hire a taxi or a private car from anywhere in the city using the mobile app. GrabShare also enables users to enjoy up to 30% lower fares and at the same time reduce their carbon footprint by sharing the ride with strangers who are heading in the same direction.
