Subang airport shuttle coach service
Last month, I flew into the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport - otherwise more popularly known as the Subang Airport - in Selangor when I last decided to travel down by air from the Penang international airport at Bayan Lepas, Penang.
Nothing much has changed at this Subang Airport. It is still being serviced mainly by Fireflyz, Malindo Air and Berjaya Air which use the reliable ATR72 twin-engine turboprop for their short-haul flights around the region.
Presently, there are two services provided by KL City Airport. One takes passengers from the airport to the nearest LRT rail station at Kelana Jaya.
The other route plies from this airport to the centre of Kuala Lumpur, and along the way it would stop opposite Sunway Pyramid, outside the Kampong Dato Harun KTM station, Bangsar LRT station, KL Sentral, the old KTM railway station before ending at the Pudu bus terminal.
There are plans to introduce other routes as well. but for the moment, these are the existing routes.
For the time being, however, this KL City Airport shuttle is very convenient and cheap for me. If one is not in a hurry and doesn't don't mind waiting for the bus to depart, it affords you a very relaxing journey to wherever you want to be dropped off along their routes, If you are in a hurry though, coupons for the airport taxis can be purchased easily while the more daring ones can choose to cross the busy main road and wait at the public RapidKL bus station. There are enough options around.
