RAPID KL will provide a shuttle service from the city to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) for fans going to the Shell Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix (MotoGP) in Sepang from Oct 27 to 29.
Rapid Bus chief executive officer Mohd Azam Omar said people could board the bus and head straight for the race venue at the Sepang International Circuit (SIC).
“Fans can also buy the tickets at the klia2 transportation hub at Level 1.” Based on records, the service has received high demand from race fans as Rapid KL is the official public transportation service for MotoGP.
“It is better to get the bus tickets now rather than later as people may need to queue when the race starts.”
The buses will provide express trips from pick-up points at KLCC and KL Sentral to SIC, and between klia2 and SIC.
Azam said: “KLCC is easily accessible to city folks with its connectivity with Rapid KL’s LRT Kelana Jaya Line and the GoKL bus hub.
Ticket prices for a one-way trip from KL Sentral and KLCC to SIC are RM20, and RM38 for a return ticket.
“The stop at klia2 can support fans coming from domestic and international flights. The bus ticket is RM12 per trip.
“From Oct 27, and throughout the event, bus tickets can be bought only at the departure points at KL Sentral, KLCC and klia2.”
The departure point for KL Sentral is at Level 1 near the ERL arrival hall, and at the Go KL bus stop in Jalan Ampang.
For klia2, the departure point is Bay 87, the bus hub at Level 1 of the low-cost carrier airport terminal.
Buses from the city will leave about every 30 minutes, with the first bus leaving at 8am and ending at noon. The first bus from klia2 is at 8am and ending at noon for the three days.
For return trips, the first bus will leave the circuit at 4pm, with the last bus scheduled for 7pm for the three days.
Azam said: “My advice is for fans to go early to the circuit.
