Sabah, like the rest of Malaysia, is flush with affordable cars and often it seems as if all of them are on the road at the same time. Even so, for tourists and those not yet the proud owner of their own car, there is an abundance of alternative transport options of various efficiencies.
Here’s a round-up of what’s on offer for those otherwise transport-challenged.
Kota Kinabalu’s City Bus is an exciting development for Kota Kinabalu as it’s a functional, cheap mode of public transport covering the city centre.
For a mere RM0.50, you can hop on any of the 4 routes and get to anywhere in the central business district between the Wawasan bus terminal and Jesselton Point, Sabah Trade Centre or the Berjaya Palace Hotel. Assuming you can find a space, of course, because the service is popular.
With reportedly 15 buses on the route, the target time for each bus is every 5 minutes. However, if you know Kota Kinabalu traffic you’ll realise that isn’t always possible, and practically the buses appear anywhere between 5 to 20 minutes.
For the price, however, and considering the air-conditioning of the relatively new buses, the Kota Kinabalu City Bus just can’t be beat.

So plentiful are taxis in KK that you would struggle to find a street corner in the city not crowded by waiting cabs.
They can be found hanging about hotels, shopping centres, one or two actual taxi stands dotted around town or really anywhere where you can flag them down safely (and sometimes not so safely too).
Here’s a short list of fast facts you should keep in mind about Sabah’s taxis:
