Driving around Putrajaya is sometimes confusing but it is about getting used to driving in Putrajaya. It needs lots of practices and a lot more of patience. Since the city is linked with myriads of highways, you can easily get lost which intersection or exits of the highways that you need to take. One thing good about driving into and around Putrajaya, there are not too many cars. Some people even lamented in a rather brute joke that you can lie on the road for 30 minutes on the road at night without having to worry to be quashed by incoming car.
However, if you are new to Putrajaya, make your trip effortlessly and flawlessly by taking the public transportation, wherever you are coming from.
The nearest airport is Kuala Lumpur International Airport. A coupon or metered budget taxi to or from KLIA will take 30 minutes and cost around RM60. Alternatively, you can take the KLIA Transit from the airport to Putrajaya station and transfer to a taxi.
For public transport the fastest choice is the KLIA Transit connecting Kuala Lumpur’s Sentral train station to its airport, which stops halfway in between at Putrajaya. Trains run every 30 minutes, take 20 minutes and the list price is RM 9.50 one-way. Putrajaya tour return tickets are no longer available.
Note: KLIA Ekspres services do not stop at Putrajaya.
Coupon taxis from Kuala Lumpur’s KL Sentral cost a fixed RM35, but otherwise you’ll have to try out your bargaining skills - figure on RM30-50, and expect to pay more at night.
Bus service is provided from 6:30AM until 10PM to and from Cyberjaya, Putrajaya, Serdang commuter station, Sinar Kota and Pasar Seni LRT station in Kuala Lumpur. The bus fare for one-way is around RM 3.50 and takes about 30 minutes-one hour, depends on the traffic flow. Usually, on non-working days the time the buses take to arrive at Putrajaya will be much faster, but the frequency of the buses will be accordingly reduced.
The new Express network by Rapid KL links KL Sentral to Putrajaya with only RM 5 for an unlimited daily pass.
All public buses from Kuala Lumpur to Putrajaya drop and pick up passengers from the bus terminal beside the train station (Putrajaya Sentral), which is at least 5 km from the core district.
Shuttle buses to/from KL are provided by some hotels for guests, such as Shangri-la.
Public transportation within Putrajaya is woefully inadequate, as distances are long and you need wheels to get around. Occasional Nadiputra buses  putter about from the train station at random times in random directions. These buses charge a flat fare of 50 sen. Your best bet is probably to enquire at KLIA or KL Sentral about organized tours. There are also public two-hour tours at 11 AM and 2 PM, departing from the tour desk at Selera Putra, that charge only a token RM 1 for the bus.
Coupon taxis from the Transit station charge RM8-10 to most points in Putrajaya. Other taxis are limited and it’s best to book by phone at +60-3-5512-2266. Other taxi hotlines include: Putrajaya Cyberjaya Radio Taxi at +60 03 8888 4000, which operates 24hours. The meter starts ticking from RM4, but many cabbies are reluctant to use theirs. Chartering starts from RM30/hour, negotiable downwards.
Construction of the Putrajaya Monorail has been halted until the occupancy of the Core District becomes higher.
