    LRT in Kuala Lumpur

    0

    The Kuala Lumpur Light Rail Transit, called LRT, is a public rail transport service that runs two major routes, the Kelana Jaya LRT line and Ampang LRT line. The Kelana Jaya LRT line operates an approximate 27km course from north to south, between Kelana Jaya (in the Klang Valley, 17km away from the heart of KL) and Gombak (16km from the city centre).

    Meanwhile, the Ampang line is broken up into two destinations – travelling a distance of 20km and 11km respectively: both routes start at the Sentul Timur LRT Station in the north of Kuala Lumpur, with the first route ending in Sri Petaling in the south, while the second course ends in Ampang in the eastern suburbs of the city.

  • Timing & Fare

    Our handy Kuala Lumpur Light Rail Transit (LRT) guide will point you in the right direction of the best known landmarks close to several LRT stations, particularly those that are truly noteworthy to out-of-town travellers. Operating between 06:00 – 24:00, with new trains arriving once every three to 15 minutes, fares start at RM1 for one stop.

    Be advised that all three train lines get particularly busy between 07:00 – 09:00, and 17:00 – 19:00, when office workers use them to commute back home to suburban neighbourhoods far away from the city.

    Of no particular importance to tourists, surrounding the station are rows of atmospheric storefronts, local offices, plus a local medical diagnostics centre, and a few casual and trendy local restaurants such as Marco’s Pizza.

    The Ampang LRT line is divided into two routes – the Sri Petaling LRT line and Ampang LRT line. These trains are mainly used as commuter links to convey office workers from far off city suburbs to the heart of KL.
