Travelling by Bus :

Busses are the most common form of public transport in Kuala Lumpur. Depending on the distance, travelling by bus could cost you between 80sen to RM3. Note that the busses can get quite packed during peak hours, which is usually in the mornings and evenings.

You will find that bus stops are very common and that there are many different bus routes. As such, you might have to take more than one bus to get to your destination of choice. It is advisable for you to enquire with the bus drivers on the exact route of the bus, or inform them of your preferred destination to ensure that you are boarding the right bus.

Taxis:
Taxis in Seri Kembangan and Kuala Lumpur are aplenty. While there are certain spots with taxi stands, most will stop at bus stops as well as by the side of the road, if safe to do so. Most taxis in Malaysia run on metres and the initial charge is RM3.00 upon boarding. There are separate charges if three or more passengers go on board, and also for storing luggage or items in the boot. You are also able to call for taxis although additional charges will apply. Note that there are also different charges after midnight.

Rail:
Seri Kembangan and Kuala Lumpur are well-connected via several rail lines such as the Light-Rail Transit (LRT) and Commuter trains (KTM). Each of these lines operates separately but at certain interchange locations, the stops are next to each other.
To get around Kuala Lumpur city, your best option would be to rely on the Monorail. This line will bring you past several shopping destinations as well as to the central business district of the city. You will need to note that there are two different LRT lines – the Putra LRT and Star LRT. Both operate to different locations (other than the interchange stations) so make sure of your destination before hopping on. At some stations, there are feeder busses that rotate around the area of the station, although separate charges apply.There is also the KTM Commuter which is a commuter train that moves within Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya cities as well.
