Complainers: would you also like some money together?
Feb 2021
I had no idea that even a bus service like GoKL could be reviewed. So when I found out the big amount of reviews, I had some fun browsing through the worst reviews (1 dot), just to see what people have to complain about when you’re getting a FREE service.

I’m not a passing-by tourist. I happen to use the GoKL bus mainly over the weekend, to go around downtown. It may occasionally happen to have not the best of driver (only once, really a brusque driving style, better be seated or you risk falling on the floor), it’s not Japan, so you can’t expect the buses to be punctual by the minute. Other than that, for what is worth given the special times we are living (no tourists around at all, thanks Covid 19 for the misery you are putting in the whole world!), here’s my experience.

The social distancing is respected and taken care of. To get on the bus you need to scan the MySejahtera app, which checks where everybody has been. No smartphone? There’s a booklet where each passenger has to fill his details (left totally to the honesty of the people). You can download and print a map of the five lines (orange, blue, green, red, purple) so to know where each one goes, where do they cross each other or other public transport means, and where all the stops are. Drivers are mainly supposed to drive competently, and not to smile to possibly grumpy tourists with expectations. Nevertheless, if you have the simple courtesy to thank them when you get off the bus, the chances of getting a smile back increase exponentially. Buses are airconditioned, like any other mean of transportation except bikes and motorbikes. If you don’t like it (as I do) search a point or a seat where you are not directly under the blow of frozen air. A bus stays clean as long as the people travelling in it behave like civilized persons and not pigs. Just saying, in the last few months I never happened to find a single piece of trash on any of the buses. Is the quality of the average passenger improved? There’s a good free Wi-fi signal (with no catches, no need to register to any site, nor to drop you personal info somewhere) on board all the buses. You can even download free e-books while on, if you feel like reading rather than looking around thru the windows. All in all, it’s a nice and relaxed way to go around downtown KL and see quite some landmarks too.

And don’t forget this main feature: it’s FREE.

Excellent way to travel
Aug 2020
from istana hotel, for example, you can get three routes(lines), to pasar seni (red line), to titiwangsa (blue line) and to klcc (green line). however, make sure you read the route name before you board your bus as all buses of the same color!

Amazing service

The buses are easy to travel and have the facility of free wifi. This is one of the best thing I found during my visit. Though the area covered is very less, but If you are a tourist this is the best for you.

Free Transport!
Nov 2019
I absolutely love that there is a free transport system for local workers and tourists alike within the KL area. I recommend all tourists grab a map of the route and get familiar with the area they're staying in.

My main source of transport

I used the bus system almost all the time. There was a stop close to my hotel and it was easy to use. It did sometimes get a little crowded, but you never had to wait long for a bus.

Gets you everywhere

The locals have taken to the free bus circling KL on five colour coded routes, some tourists can squeeze in too. The Green line does an 8 shaped round from Petronas to Pavilion and is often stuck in traffic. Purple line overlaps its other loop and travels further to Pasar Seni, Central market, the starting point is at the corner of Chinatown. Red line operates on the opposite side of these two connecting KL Sentral railway station to Titiwangsa park and monorail. Blue line does the Pavilion loop too and continues to Hospital KL, where you can change to a new Orange line for National Art Museum and Istana Budaya building.

Free bus service within the city
Feb 2020
Why take a GRAB car when you can go around the city for FREE. Yes this is a FREE air conditioning bus service around KL that goes through most of the shopping district. You can hop on one just outside of KLCC. Since it is free, it is the best way to see the sights around KL
