Taxi cabs in Kuala Lumpur are mostly red in color, which makes them very easy to spot even on the busiest streets. Regular taxi cabs roaming around the city are either from Nissan or Ford. The fare ranges from RM 3 to RM 7, depending on the company. Most regular taxi service companies can be called for reservations but with advanced technology, most prefer online reservations for a much easier access.

Always insist on the use of meters. KL metered fare system is RM3.00 for the first 1 km and subsequent 150 metres is RM0.10.
