KLIA Transit

KLIA Transit is a rail service linking Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, and the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) operated by Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd (ERL). It shares the same tracks as the KLIA-Exspres but unlike the direct airport express service, KLIA Transit stops at three other stations.

Both KLIA Transit and KLIA Ekspres services are often reffered to by Malaysians simply as ERL.

There are five stations served by KLIA Transit. They are (from north to south):
Station Name Interchange
KL Sentral KLIA Express, Kelana Jaya Line, KTM Komuter
Bandar Tasik Selatan Sri Petaling Line and KTM Komuter
Cyberjaya/Putrajaya Future Putrajaya Monorail
Salak Tinggi -None-


Fares depend on the distance travelled. The fares for KL Sentral-KLIA and KLIA-KL Sentral are the same as KLIA Ekspres at RM35. There are reduced fares for elderly people (over 50), though this reduction applies only to Malaysian citizens.

Check-in facilities are not available at KLIA Transit stations. However, passengers holding KLIA Transit tickets are allowed to check-in luggage for several airlines at the KL CAT in KL Sentral.

The following is the fare structure for a one-way trip as of 2006:
