Buses seem to be the most popular mode of transport between KL Sentral and Kuala Lumpur International Airport nowadays, with multiple bus operators at the ground floor offering frequent services to both terminals. On my last trip, I noticed a new player in the route parked near the KTM Rail Replacement Bus Service berths, so I needed to check it out to satisfy my curiosity. With a flight to catch from klia2, this seems like a perfect opportunity to try out the new Suasana Edaran Express from KL Sentral to klia2.

The usual bus bays for klia2, KLIA and Genting.
However, the new Suasana Edaran bus that I saw was on the further end of the road.
Here it is – the new Suasana Edaran bus from KL Sentral to klia2. Wonder why I haven’t seen anything online about it yet.

“Ask counter for more information”. I think I have enough information there, thank you.
The Suasana Edaran bus is parked right in front of the counter.

Turns out you can also book your Suasana Edaran bus ticket from KL Sentral to klia2 on Easybook as this was what they used at the counter to book and print out my ticket.

Seats can be reclined comfortably, just like almost all long-distance buses. On top of that, Suasana Edaran offers calf rests and foot rests for even more comfort.
USB charging ports can be found below the seats. And these actually work, unlike a lot of long-distance buses.
The bus departed from KL Sentral right on time at 10.20am despite the light load. This is like the cheapest stretch limousine from KL Sentral to klia2.
Passing by the old Kuala Lumpur Railway Station.
Passing by the future Bandar Malaysia as if heading back to Singapore.
Passing under the ERL and KTM tracks.
Passing by Taman Equine with the MRT Sungai Buloh–Serdang–Putrajaya Line viaducts running below the highway.
Heading down to the bus bay.
Entering the klia2 bus bay.
The journey from KL Sentral to klia2 took just 50 minutes with no traffic jams along the way.
Once the driver dropped off the passengers like a Grabcar or taxi, the doors were closed as he prepared to depart from the bus bay.
Definitely starting my flight well. Fly high via Suasana Edaran indeed.
Ob the reverse trip, tickets can be purchased from the integrated counter at klia2.
Overall, it’s pretty safe to say that this is the best RM12 I’ve ever spent on a transfer to klia2. The bus was rather new with spacious Super VIP seats and USB charging ports, with fares at the same price of Aerobus and Skybus over the counter. Suasana Edaran Express is officially my first choice when travelling from KL Sentral to klia2 now. Hopefully, the frequency of the buses will increase once enough people know about it to support the demand for it.
