Getting there from/to Airport
Kuala Lumpur is mainly served by Kuala Lumpur International Airport for most domestic and international air travel, however Subang Skypark do offer limited air connectivity to several other cities in Malaysia.
The airport is served by KLIA Express and KLIA Transit. To get to the campus via rail, you may take the KLIA transit, and make a change of train in Bandar Tasik Selatan Station to RapidKL’s Sri Petaling line, and alight at the Sri Petaling RapidKL Station.
There are several buses that provide express services between the airport and KL Sentral railway station. You may continue your journey to the campus via train services.
Getting there by Train
International Medical University is located at the southern side of Kuala Lumpur and the Bukit Jalil campus is connected to the city center with its metro system. The train runs from 6am to 12am daily with extended hours on selected festivals. Trains in Kuala Lumpur are run by two different companies, namely Rapid KL and KTM.
The nearest station to the campus is Sri Petaling Rapid KL station, which brings you right to the city center. All stations are equipped with ticket vending machines, and each company have their own stored value card. However, both companies accept Touch n’ Go card. All you need to do with the card is “tap in” when entering the station and “tap out” at the alighting station.
Getting there by Taxis/Cabs
Taxis are abundant in the city. While cabs often wait in designated ranks that are clearly signposted, you can also hail one in the street. Alternatively, you may call taxi operating companies to pre-book your taxi. However, there are errant taxi drivers that refuse to use meters in several parts of the city. Insist the driver on using the meter or hail another taxi.
Getting there by Buses
Public buses are available in the city, mostly operated by Rapid KL.
