How to Go

Petaling Jaya

As a major satellite city adjoining Kuala Lumpur, PJ shares its network of public transport systems that encompass flights, trains, coaches and cabs. Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) at Sepang provides the primary gateway by air to Malaysia - linking to KL Sentral - Malaysia's national transit hub that provides connections all over Klang Valley. Malaysian Airlines (MAS) is the official country carrier, while AirAsia and Malindo Air provide budget flights serving domestic and international routes (some operating from Subang Skypark Terminal in PJ). Most executive class hotels in town also provide their own private shuttle service from KLIA, Subang Airport and KL Sentral.

Getting Around

The city of PJ is well connected by light rail transit (LRT) routes - high-speed urban trains running on elevated tracks across the urban landscape. At major landmarks and locations in town, LRT Stations provide the most convenient and quickest route of travel around and to Kuala Lumpur. These trains at PJ are managed by Rapid KL that also operates the feeder buses plying busy commutes. Additional LRT services under MRT (Mass Rapid Transit) Corp and Rapid Rail are currently expected to be completed in 2017, which will cover further areas in PJ. KTM Komuter is a conventional railway train service that features limited stations in PJ, but is still crucial as it connects to exclusive popular spots such as Subang Jaya and Mid Valley (at least until the LRT projects are completed). Finally, a free city bus is provided by the Petaling Jaya Municipal Council that goes around most parts of town.
