KLIA Transit: KL Sentral to Putrajaya & Cyberjaya by Train

KLIA Transit KL Sentral Putrajaya 001

The KLIA Transit is the commuter all-stop train of the Express Rail Link. Heading back to Singapore on a possible super-peak Sunday, I decided to travel avoiding the fuss and crowds, which is not buying a super expensive plane ticket. Instead of getting the bus from TBS, I decided to catch one from Putrajaya Sentral instead, so I’m using the KLIA Transit to get from KL Sentral to Putrajaya & Cyberjaya.
