Getting Around Kuala Lumpur
As far as transportation options go, you will find a ton of it in the bustling heart of Kuala Lumpur.
Taxis, buses, public transportation, and good ol’ walking will be your main forms of transportation while in KL. Other than that, renting a vehicle is also an option. Though, this option is not really recommended as the gridlock in the city can be a massive waste of your precious time.
Getting Around KL The Local Way
As for getting around like the locals, the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT), Light Metro (LRT), Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), monorail, and commuter rail will definitely be your best bet.
You’ll be able to arrive at almost any destination within the city with these public transportation networks. And if not, there’s always the option of taking taxis/e-hailing vehicles to places that aren’t covered by this network to fall back on.
Staying in KL for a bit?
Purchasing a RapidKL pass is perfect to make your travels faster and more efficient. Say goodbye to long queues and buying single trip tokens!
Lastly, if you’re looking for a short tour, getting on a hop on and hop off bus tour will also make getting around in KL a breeze.
Bonus Tip: There are e-scooters for rent scattered throughout the streets of KL if you’re looking to skip walking altogether.
