1. What types of public transport is available? Prices? Is the public transport system safe and easy for a tourist to use?

2. Taxi - Are they safe, what are the rates for getting around the city. Also what is an estimate for a trip from somewhere in the city to somewhere like Sepang (race circuit) or Ipoh.

Thanks.
