    The Kuala´s Monorail was opened in 2003, it has 11 elevated stations, and is capable of handling almost 5,000 passanger per hour. All the trains were made in Malaysia, and is a good way of transport in a city with such big traffic problems.

    Convinient way of getting around KL

    by tremendopunto Written Apr 2, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Guidebooks say KL is no city for pedestrians.......I cant agree to that since walking around KL was quite easy, ok, I got lost once in a while, but i no other way do you get to know a city better than by walking. From Bukit Bintang to the Petronas Towers and so on...you can check out every place along the way.

    Ok, this is about the Monorail, a very convinient way to get around, from Sentral to Bukit Bintang for example and everywhere along that way.

    Taxi is not a must

    by 3za Written Jan 19, 2008

    It was really easy to go around KL..just ask around how to go & the streets to remember & you'll easily get there....thanks to their efficient monorail & LRTs.....there's always a connecting mode of transport wherever you get off whether a bus or a train type is available....not much long walks...Even if you're a 1st timer your pockets won't hurt coz of Taxi fare

    We were impressed by the transport system in the centre of Kl, extensive coverage using metro, monorail, local trains and the bus. The situation further out is not so good we were told, only a sporadic bus service.
    The link to the website gies lots of info.

    Easy and Fast Way to Get Around KL

    by tidzy Written Sep 9, 2007

    The prices are cheap, depending on which station you're from and where you want to go. There aren't any schedules, if you miss a monorail train that just went by, in about 5 minutes there would be another one that would come along. It's pretty convenient since you avoid the traffic if ever you travel during rush hour.

    Cheap and quick though doesn't get you everywhere

    Pasar Seni LRT station

    KL remains a city built for cars, and therefore public transportation is not the best. The relatively new "metro" system consists of a mixture of ground-level trains (KTM Komuter lines), underground trains (the light railway system) and elevated trains (the monorail). Sadly, these lines are not particularly well integrated, even if some stations are located next to each other! And they don't go everywhere - indeed, some lines seem to go nowhere important! Still, the system will get you to some useful central locations, e.g. KLCC and the Bukit Bintang area with relative air-conditioned ease, and at very affordable prices (RM2 ish). The short monorail line is perhaps the most comfortable.

    If you're thinking of travelling around Bukit Bintang along Jalan Sultan Ismail (Hard Rock Cafe, Concorde Hotel, Sheraton Imperial Hotel, Jalan Doraisamy, Maju Junction Mall) towards Bangsar or KL Sentral (Central Station), then this is the best method - the Monorail. It's convenient and less hassle.

    Very Dynamic Transportation

    We stay in Crowne Plaza KL and jus outside is a monorail station, so this was the transportation that we mainly used to go to the shopping malls in Ampang area (by the way isn’t worth it), Chinatown, Downtown and all the masjid and markets, Bangsar, etc. We made connections to LTR or KCR or the Express Train to go to Putrajaya, The Mines or the airport and the other that I mentioned from the monorail .
    Is colourful, not so big, goes in a moderate speed and the distance line is relatively short.

  • The Red KL MonoRail

    The Short MonoRail

    In this account, I shall write about my travelling experience using KL rail network.

    This is my second trip to Kuala Lumpur and my first to the Park at Bukit Cahaya Seri Alam - finding my way around KL would be a small challenge for me.

    I took the challenge to travel around KL using the Monorail and the Komuter.It was my first experience travelling in this mode of transport.

    There is a monorail station near the Swiss Inn in ChinaTown where I stayed. The station is call Mahaderaja. I think there are only 2 carriage trains in the monorail system. The train comes arrives the station quite regularly, say every 5 minutes or so. As I ventured nearby, I was surprised to see Stadium Merdeka. I had been trying to find out where the stadium was. I did not know it was just next to the monorail station

    The KL Monorail system has 11 stations from KL Sentral to Titiwangsa.

    The travelling time along the 8.6km route from Titiwangsa to KL Sentral station is about 19 mins.
    Here are the 11 stations:

    KL Sentral
    Tun Sambanthan
    Maharajalela
    Hang Tuah (Interchange for STAR)
    Imbi
    Bukit Bintang
    Raja Chulan
    Bukit Nanas (Interchange for PUTRA)
    Medan Tuanku
    Chow Kit
    Titiwangsa (Interchange for STAR)

    We often took the monorail from Bukit Bintang station to KL Sentral to change over to the Putra Line just across the street.

    This is a easy way to get around in KL. The monorail is fast , well airconditioned and cheap and a good way to avoid the traffic jams down below. Its also a nice way of getting another view of the city as you nicely elevated over the road. The tracks runs from KL Sentral to Titiwangsa and making many stop in between.

    The monorail was very easy to use. We stayed at the Melia hotel so it was right outside our door. You can pick up a rail map at most hotels. You purchase your ticket at the station (very cheap), and all the stops have good signage. The train runs from 6am to midnight.

    This is considered the latest addition to the rail system within Kuala Lumpur city.

    It worth a ride as it pass tru major tourist areas at a very reasonable fare.

    The frequency ranges from 4 to 10 minutes.
