RapidKL, KTM Komuter or Monorail
Using the metro is a very popular way of transport in Kuala Lumpur. At each Light Rail Transit station (LRT) there are big maps that tell you all the destinations of the metro in and around the city. You can also get a map at the small counter at each station. Tickets can be bought at the machines or at the counter. You can also buy a daily pass and other special tickets, like the Touch 'N Go prepaid card that you can swipe when you go through the LRT gate. Fare between two connecting stations range from RM1.20 to RM2.50 one-way. There are three LRT lines in Kuala Lumpur. They are RapidKL, KTM Komuter and KL Monorail. Though stations are not always connected; together they do offer the possibility to travel through the whole city. RapidKL and KTM Komuter connect the city center with all the suburbs; while the KL Monorail runs straight through the city center. Though a train arrives at a KL Monorail station every 3 to 4 minutes; do try to avoid the Monorail during rush hour. You can use the metro daily between 6 am and midnight.

Taxis in Kuala Lumpur
Taxis are relatively inexpensive and can be a good way to get around the city. Make sure to only take metered taxis, as some taxis refuse to use a meter and will overcharge. Not all taxis take credit cards so plan to carry some Malaysian ringgit with you. Taxis in Kuala Lumpur come in two types- budget (red and white in color) and executive (yellow and blue in color). Executive taxis are slightly newer and more comfortable but charge more than budget taxies. Budget rates are about RM3 ($0.77) for the first 1km and RM 0.10 ($0.03) for each consequent 115 metres while rates for executive taxies are about RM6 ($1.54) for the first 1km and RM 0.20 ($0.05) for each consequent 150 metres.
Note that from midnight until 6:00 a.m. there is a 50% surcharge on metered fares. Also note that while tips are not expected, many drivers appreciate any extra money you offer (through rounding up). Carrying change is recommended as some taxi drivers claim not to carry any themselves. Some places, such as shopping malls and airports, also use a prepaid coupon system for taxis.
