RapidKL Buses
RapidKL operates a cheap and comprehensive public bus network in and around Kuala Lumpur but the low frequencies (20-30 min on many routes) and the jam-packed rush hour buses makes it a poor option for the casual visitor. Buses run between 6.00 a.m and 11.00 p.m. with no night services. If you do venture on the buses, there are three categories of bus routes i.e. the Bandar (B) routes are city centre shuttles buses, Utama (U) buses travel to the outlying suburbs and Tempatan (T) buses are feeder services travelling to and from the train stations.
