Airport Coach: KLIA to KL Sentral by Bus

If you’re getting from KLIA to KL Sentral, instead of heading for the more direct but very expensive KLIA Ekspres route to the city, you can also opt for the Airport Coach and save up to RM45 for your airport transfer.

The Airport Coach counter is located on the main island ahead.

Buy your ticket from the green Airport Coach booth in the middle. A bus ticket from KLIA to KL Sentral goes for RM10.

You can also buy your Airport Coach ticket online at CatchThatBus.

The boarding area isn’t as nice as the one in klia2, but still does its job nonetheless.

The interior of the Airport Coach to KL Sentral.

As this is a 44-seater bus as compared with Jetbus, the legroom is slightly compromised.

Arrived at KL Sentral. The journey from KLIA to KL Sentral took around 1 hour without jams. You should factor in a 90 minute journey just in case of any traffic incidents around.

If you’re going from KL Sentral to KLIA, you can get your ticket at the Airport Coach booth just at the boarding area. Do note that the Airport Coach only serves KLIA and does not go to klia2.

Why should you take the Airport Coach over the Express Rail Link trains (KLIA Ekspres and KLIA Transit) from KLIA to KL Sentral?

The KLIA Ekspres from KLIA to KL Sentral takes 28 minutes and the KLIA Transit takes 35 minutes with 3 intermediate stops. As compared to Airport Coach which takes around an hour, it’s almost half the time taken by train. However, the Airport Coach costs just RM10 as compared to the ridiculously high fare of RM55 which is 5.5 times more. Moreover, the Airport Coach guarantees you a seat throughout the journey and does not make any additional stops in between. If you can spare an additional half an hour to be early for your airport transfer, you can save RM45 per person which could get you an extra budget hotel night’s stay in KL.
