Hi [VT member 7b4c2],
Mikrolet(local minibus) is the main public transportation in Malang. They have several routes and you can find easily from the main road. For detailed available route you can find at:
[original link] and [original link]
Unfortunately there is no English version, but hopefully you can understand it. Sometimes their route is a bit confusing, particularly for the first time visitor. There is also available mikrolet between Malang and Batu, which is operated from Landungsari terminal.
It is a bit difficult to stop taxi from the road side as it is quite rare, but you can find it at taxi range near the shopping centre, main hotel, or city centre. Taxi phone number is also available on weblink above.
just visit [original link]
