Rail Transportation in Malaysia
Rail transport in Malaysia consists of heavy rail (including KTM Komuter), light rapid transit (LRT), mass rapid transit (MRT), monorails, airport rail links and a funicular railway line. Heavy rail is mostly used for intercity passenger and freight transport as well as some urban public transport, while rapid transit is used for intra-city urban public transport in Kuala Lumpur, the national capital, and the surrounding Klang Valley region.
There are two airport rail link systems linking Kuala Lumpur with the Kuala Lumpur International Airport. The longest monorail line in the country is also used for public transport in Kuala Lumpur city center, while the only funicular railway line is used in Penang Hill.
