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:
Hang Tuah (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.
KL Monorail runs 8.6km with 2 parallel elevated tracks and serves 11 stations. It connects KL Sentral, the transportation hub of Kuala Lumpur, with major hotels and shopping malls in the city.

Stations served in between are Maharajalela, Hang Tuah, Imbi, Bukit Bintang, Raja Chulan, Bukit Nenas, Medan Tuanku and Chow Kit. This is the best mode of transport if you are heading into the Central Business District of Kuala Lumpur i.e. Bukit Bintang. Single fare is priced between RM1.20 and RM2.50.

Among all modes of transportation in KL, I like monorail the most. It's just like a sigh-seeing train, travelling in the middle of the air, enabling you to look at the city from a different angle. Moreover, the trains are new, very well air-conditioned and fast.... they are really fast, i felt like having a ride in an amusement park~!~
The tracks runs from KL Sentral to Titiwangsa making stops at Tun Sambanthan, Maharajalela, Hang Tuah where you can interchange with the STAR LRT trains, Imbi (Berjaya Times Square), Bukit Bintang, Raja Chulan, Bukit Nanas, Medan Tuanku, Chow Kit and lastly arriving at Titiwangsa which you can also interchange to the STAR LRT trains.
From one end to another the fare is RM2.50 each way.
Train starts at 7am till 10pm daily.
KL Monorail - the "missing link" in KL's integrated transportation system started its commercial operation on 1 October 2003.
With effect from 1 November 2003, its operation hours is from 7am till 11pm daily. By January 2004 it will be fully operational with additional trains and extending its operation hours from 6am to 12 midnite.
The route links Titiwangsa (Jln Tun Razak) and KL Sentral, passing through KL's golden triangle and major shopping areas. The fares start from RM1.20 to RM2.50.
Getting around on the Monorail is simple. The lines are colour coded for easy identification. Although they can tend to be quite packed. We had to wait for the next one as we couldn't get onto the first....but never mind, they are only about 10 minutes apart.
This is the cooles way to go around KL. It is cheap, comfortable, fast and frequent. Looking at the jams below you, makes you smile ...
It is a new thing in KL and they had just extended the operational hours in November - from 7 am till 10 pm.
The Kuala Lumpur monorail is a very convenient mode of transport for the tourists as it serves the central part of Kuala Lumpur where the tourists are likely to go.
It stops at 11 stations including places like KL central, Bukit Bintang and Petronas towers, so you have a good chance of stepping on to the monorail.
It´s a very fast and efficient way of getting around the city where you often have traffic jams during rush hour, so get on the monorail if you wanna get there fast.
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.
Operates daily as early as 6am to 12 mid nite. Do take note of the time of the last train that departs from respective station or u might end up with alternative transport swhich may cost higher.
The frequency ranges from 4 to 10 minutes.

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.
Each station of the monorail we can reach to interested places .
And in KL Sentral we can interchange to KTM Komuter, Putraline, ERL to airport. And from Titiwangsa Station we can interchange to Starline.
Its easy go everywhere, in the city.
The Monorail is another latest light rail system which connects all the way from KL Sentral and covers places like Jalan Imbi (for Times Square), Bukit Bintang (acclaimed great shopping at Star Hill) and Bukit Nenas (connection to KL Tower). Prices are slightly higher than Putra LRT but offers a great experience of KL city view.
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.
When I first wrote this tip the monorail in KL was about to open on the 31st August. I had just seen a train go by the window of the internet cafe I was then sitting in (Sun 24th August).
The word 'mass' as in transit does not really come to mind as the two-car trains can't hold that many people.
On the other hand it will provide a very useful link from the Sentral (correct spelling!) Station to the Bingtang / golden triangle hotel area.
It is a pity they could not site the station at Sentral station a bit closer - it will mean a short walk through the car park to get the service.
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.
