Airport Coach from klia2 to KL Sentral by Bus

Airport Coach Bus from klia2 to KL Sentral

I had exited from klia2 Malaysia customs at 12.05pm, so I had the opportunity to catch the next departing KLIA Transit train at 12.22pm. However, the KLIA Ekspres app wouldn’t issue my ticket even though my credit card OTP had passed, and I missed the 12.22pm train. So between an RM49.50 12.42pm next train departure, or an RM15 12.45pm bus departure to KL Sentral, I chose the latter to save RM34.50 in cash.

With a good departure timing, the airport buses from klia2 to KL Sentral offer a viable alternative to the KLIA Transit with a slight difference in journey time. In my case, it was just 20 minutes based on schedule, and 17 minutes if only taking the travel time. Do note that airport buses are subjected to usual road traffic, though the big difference in fares between the train and bus may also aid in your choice of transport despite the longer journey time of the airport bus.
