Metro system offers two trains that operate from KLIA to KL Sentral station. They include the KLIA transit and the KLIA express. If you want to arrive at the cave fast, then you need to use the express train. The KLIA transit is a bit slow because it makes stops at various terminus including Salak, Bandar Tasik, TinggiPutrajaya, and Selatan. If you board the express train then it will take you only 28 minutes to reach KL Sentral station which is located outside the city. This means that if you want to arrive at Batu Caves, then you need to take an additional train (KTM Serembam Line) to take you to Batu Caves. This journey will consume an additional 26 minutes.

The train operates between the following time frame: 06.54am – 11.24pm.
