RapidKL LRT – Light Rail Transit Train In Klang Valley

RapidKL is the main service provider of mass public transportation in the Klang Valley via rail and bus network. RapidKL operates two rail-based networks, both of which are rapid transit systems in Selangor and Kuala Lumpur.

The two rail networks are:

  • The Kelana Jaya Line (previously known as PUTRA LRT), which runs from Kelana Jaya in the south-west to Gombak in the north-east.
  • The Ampang Line (previously known as STAR LRT), which runs from Sentul Timur in the north and split to Ampang in the south-east and Sri Petaling in the south-west.

Kelana Jaya Line
The Kelana Jaya Line was previously known as PUTRA Line LRT system or commonly called as PUTRA LRT (which stood for Projek Usahasama Transit Ringan Automatik Sdn Bhd, the company which developed and operated it).

The Kelana Jaya Line is a single line from Kelana Jaya to Gombak. The route covers southern region of Petaling Jaya, southwest and central of Kuala Lumpur, Kuala Lumpur city centre and other low density residential areas further north of Kuala Lumpur.

The Kelana Jaya Line is the third longest fully-automated driverless metro system in the world, which spans 29 kilometres. The route is in north to south direction with a total of 24 stations, of which 16 stations are elevated and 5 stations are underground.

Kelana Jaya Line stations were designed to be disabled passenger friendly. They have elevators and wheelchair lifts alongside escalators and stairways in various levels of the stations. The stations were also designed to have platform gaps smaller than 5 cm to allow easy access for the disabled and wheelchair users.

There are a number of closed-circuit security cameras for security purposes in all the stations.
