KL Sentral Station
Kuala Lumpur Sentral Station is a modern transit-oriented hub. It is part of a self-contained urban development project. It was opened in 2001 to replace the old main railway station of Kuala Lumpur. It is also the largest railway station in Malaysia.
KL Sentral is designed as an intermodal transport hub for majority of rail lines except for Ampang and Sri Petaling LRT line. To date it houses KTM Komuter service, KTM Intercity service, ETS service, KLIA Transit service, KLIA ERL service, Kelana Jaya Line LRT service and Skypark Link service.
Located within walking distance from the station, there are Monorail service and Sungai Buloh-Kajang MRT Line service. KL Sentral monorail station is located behind the newly built Nu Sentral shopping mall. It is directly connected to Nu Sentral which allows for uninterrupted walking between Stesen Sentral and the monorail station. Due to space constraints, the MRT station cannot be built in the Stesen Sentral area, therefore it had to be built in front of the nearby National Museum to allow connections to Stesen Sentral. There is the footbridge that connects the MRT station to the main KL Sentral building.
KL Sentral also act as a bus hub. It houses RapidKL bus service, city shuttle service, Hop On Hop Off bus service, and other bus services that go to Genting HIghland, KLIA, Singapore and Cyberjaya.
