KL Monorail

The KL Monorail is an urban monorail system (previously known as Peoplemover Rapid Transit - PRT) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It opened on 31 August 2003, and serves 11 stations running 8.6 km (5 mi) with two parallel elevated tracks. It connects the Kuala Lumpur Sentral transport hub with the "Golden Triangle". It was completed at a cost of MYR 1.18 billion by the KL Infrastructure Group (KL Infra).

KL Infra declared bankruptcy on 15 May 2007 after repeatedly missing loan repayments. On 29 November 2007, Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad (SPNB) signed a sale-and-purchase agreement with KL Monorail Systems Sdn Bhd (KLMS). The current operator for the KL Monorail system is RapidKL Rail, a wholly owned subsidiary of SPNB.

According to Ministry of Transport statistics, the annual ridership for the Monorail Line in 2008 was 21,765,233.

On 1 March 2012, KL Monorail was integrated with the Ampang Line light rail transit when the "paid-up" or restricted areas of the Hang Tuah monorail and LRT stations, and also at the Titiwangsa monorail and LRT stations, were physically linked up, allowing transfers without the need to buy new tickets for the first time since the system became operational.
