KK TRANSPORTATION: GETTING HERE AND THERE

LAND


All public buses, minivans and shared taxis heading north to the city centre, different parts of the city and its outskirts and are stationed at the bus terminal along Jalan Tun Razak. Buses and minivans departing to the north east or east of Kota Kinabalu (Tuaran, Kota Belud, Kudat, Ranau, Sandakan and others) are also stationed here. Inter-city buses are stationed at Bandaran Berjaya Bus Terminal if you are heading south (Papar, Beaufort, Tenom, Keningau, Tambunan and others).


Bus departures are frequent throughout the day for most destinations (30-45 minutes interval) but the general rule of traveling is to travel early; the further your destination is, the earlier you should depart. Note that there is no bus service at the airport, but you can catch a bus at the main road to the city centre that will cost RM 1.50.Bus and minivan fares range from RM1 per way up to RM3 or more per way depending on where you’re headed to. Taxi fares are much more expensive and can start from as high as RM25 per way, even if it’s just a 10 minute drive to your destination.

Although you can commute to Tenom using either a bus, minivan or taxi, another option is to take a 4 hour journey by train. Sabah’s only railway runs from Kota Kinabalu all the way to Tenom via Papar and Beaufort. The fare is cheap (RM7.50 for economy class and RM11.50 for first class) and you’re in for a scenic journey to Tenom.
