Putrajaya sits on a magnificent 4,931 hectares of land strategically located within the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC), approximately 25km south of Kuala Lumpur and 20km north of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). Putrajaya is accessible via a network of highways and the Express Rail Link (ERL Transit) from Kuala Lumpur Sentral to KLIA via Putrajaya Sentral in Precinct 7.
Putrajaya is being developed as a City in a Garden. About 38% of its area is being developed into parks, lakes and wetlands while the rest is reserved for government offices, commercial and residential development, public utilities and amenities. The 600 hectare man-made Putrajaya Lake serves as a climate moderator. Currently, lake activities available are boating, canoeing, kayaking and fishing.
Being located within the Multimedia Super Corridor, and in line with the Government’s e-Government initiative, Putrajaya is being developed as an intelligent city. Multimedia technologies are being implemented to facilitate communications and interactions between Government offices, between the Government and the business community, and between the Government and the community.
The nearest airport is Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and KLIA2. A coupon or metered budget taxi to or from KLIA will take 30 minutes and cost around RM60. Alternatively, you can take the KLIA Transit from the airport to the Putrajaya Sentral Station, where taxis are always available.
For public transport the fastest choice is the KLIA Transit connecting Kuala Lumpur’s Sentral train station to its airport, which stops halfway in between at Putrajaya. Trains run every 30 minutes, takes approximately 20 minutes and the price is RM 14 one-way (as of Nov 2016). Using a credit card to book the ticket on the kiosk can get you a 10% discount (RM 12.6). Please note that Putrajaya tour return tickets are no longer available.
Note: The high-speed KLIA Express is not to be confused with KLIA Transit. KLIA Express, unlike KLIA Transit, goes from the KL Sentral train station to KLIA and vice versa non-stop, which means the train passes by the Putrajaya train station. Do not ride KLIA Express if you’re heading for Putrajaya.
Coupon taxis from Kuala Lumpur’s KL Sentral cost a fixed RM45. Haggling is also common among taxi drivers, prices should range around RM40-50, and expect to pay more at night.
We recommend you to get UBER or GRAB.
Bus service is provided from 6:30AM until 10PM to and from Cyberjaya, Putrajaya, Serdang commuter station, Sinar Kota and Pasar Seni LRT station in Kuala Lumpur. The bus fare for one-way is around RM 3.50 and takes about 30 minutes to one hour, depending on the traffic conditions. Usually, on non-working days, the time the buses take to arrive at Putrajaya will be much faster, but the frequency of the buses will be accordingly reduced. The new Express network by Rapid KL links KL Sentral to Putrajaya is only RM 5 for an unlimited daily pass.
All public buses from Kuala Lumpur to Putrajaya drop and pick up passengers from the bus terminal beside the train station (Putrajaya Sentral), which is at least 5 km from the core district.
Shuttle buses to/from KL are provided by some hotels for guests, such as Shangri-la.
