SEPANG: Taxi services at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) will be expanded, under a new system to allow city taxis to pick up passengers, starting Wednesday.

The waiting period for passengers is expected to be reduced to under 10 minutes under the two-tier system featuring airport limousines and city taxis, said Land Public Transport Commission chairman Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar.

“The city taxis will operate from Level One of the KLIA main terminal building using meter.

“The airport limousines will follow a zone system from Level Three and passengers will be charged a fixed price according to the distance of the journey under a coupon system,” Syed Hamid said at a media briefing here Monday.
