Rapid KL Bus Service for MotoGP 2022 Race, Oct 21-23

MotoGP is back in Sepang after a Covid-enforced break and the 2022 Petronas Malaysian Grand Prix (the national oil company replaced Shell as the title sponsor of the Malaysian GP) will take place from October 21-23. Malaysia will host the FIM MotoGP World Championship until 2024 after SIC has signed a new contract with Dorna Sports.

On the way to the race? Why not just sit back and relax on the bus or even take a nap instead of fighting traffic, looking for parking and paying the toll. Rapid KL is offering bus services from the city to Sepang and back, and tickets will go on sale from this Thursday, October 6.

Buses will pick up passengers from KLCC and KL Sentral, as well as KLIA2. Tickets from both points in the city are priced at RM20 one way and RM35 return. The shortest hop from the airport to the runway is RM12 one way.

During the three days, the first bus will depart from the city at 8:00 a.m., while the last bus to Sepang will depart at 1:00 p.m. For the return to KL from Sepang, the first bus will leave at 4:00 p.m. and the last bus will leave at 7:00 p.m. The frequency is 30 minutes.

Where exactly are the pick-up points? The KLCC point is at the bus stop on Jalan Ampang, opposite Avenue K. The KL Sentral point is the side entrance near the ERL departure hall, facing Sooka Sentral. KLIA2? Look for door 3 at the transport hub, level 1.

KL-SIC tickets can be purchased at major LRT stations (KLCC, KL Sentral, Masjid Jamek, Pasar Seni) and at the concession card counter in Pasar Seni, starting October 6. KLIA2-SIC tickets will only go on sale during the race weekend. Look for Counter 10 at the Transport Center.
