KL Radio Cab service is erratic, different from some other countries like Singapore. You need to name the destination and if the drivers deem the journey too troublesome and not worth the effort, none will respond to the call.

Can I have an idea how many days you will be in KL, and more specifically what you want to use the taxi's for. For example you could say I want to travel from Bangsar to Cyberjaya for a 3 week consulting job every day arriving before 9am...etc.

With this information we might be better able to advise you.

I've lived in Bangsar for 15 years and don't drive but that has never been an issue. 2 very good and reliable cab companies (which mean the cabs actually show up when they've confirmed the booking!!) and are readily available in Bangsar (usually I wait no more than 10 mins even during peak hours):

Cityline: 03 41425566

SW: 03 26936211

Both numbers are on my speed dial list! LOL
