KL Monorail is the only functioning monorail service in Malaysia. It serves mainly Kuala Lumpur’s golden triangle area.
Opened on August 31st 2003, the construction was done at a cost of RM 1.18 billion by KL Infrastructure Group (KL Infra). After a series of takeovers, it is now operated by KL Star Rail, a fully-owned subsidiary of Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad (SPNB).
KL StarRail Sdn. Bhd used to be the operator for this rail line.
Stations / Stops
When KL Monorail service initially started, it operates with just two-carriage monorails. However, all stations are constructed to accommodate four-carriage monorail sets. Therefore, when four-car monorail sets were introduced recently, no major renovations were needed for the stations. All stations are at above-grade level.
