The Bas SMART Selangor is a free bus service scheme offering residents in rural areas a new mode of public transport. One of the newer, useful and somehow unpublicized routes are those plying in Sepang, and the SPG02 bus from Bandar Baru Salak Tinggi and Salak Tinggi ERL gets you to KLIA and klia2 for FREE!

A leg rest is even available should you prefer to use one.

Overall, considering that this is a free bus service, the ride was actually more comfortable than a regular paid service due to the low ridership (for now) and comfy seats. Saving money on the KLIA Ekspres makes the journey even sweeter.
