With more than 100 stations, Kuala Lumpur has the second most extensive metro system in Southeast Asia. The international airport has two dedicated lines that connect to KL Sentral, which is the largest train station in the region. The KTM Komuter and airport lines run on strict timetables while the LRT, MRT, and Monorail services run every five to 10 minutes, depending on the time of day. Operations generally start at 6:00 AM and end before midnight. While the system has come a long way since its inception in 1995, you still have to do a bit of research to decide which rail pass is right for you. The city’s transit department offers a comprehensive breakdown of the different Rapid KL packages available. The good news is that the system is hyper-efficient and very affordable, and there is no need for a car during a trip to the city.
