Bukit Bintang Monorail Station
About the Station
Opened on 31 August 2003, Bukit Bintang Monorail Station is an elevated monorail station that forms a part of the Kuala Lumpur Monorail Line. The Station is named after Bukit Bintang district, a shopping hub in Kuala Lumpur.
The name "Bukit Bintang" when translated from Malay to English is known as "Star Hill". Erected over Jalan Sultan Ismail, the station is located directly south from the Jalan Sultan Ismail - Jalan Bukit Bintang intersection.
The station has three exits: The northwest exit leads to the west side of Jalan Sultan Ismail, while the southwest and southeast exists directly lead into the BB Plaza and Lot 10 shopping centers, respectively, via pedestrian bridges. Similar to the nearby Imbi Station, the Bukit Bintang Station is also directly within walking distance from various other shopping centers (including the Starhill Gallery, Low Yat Plaza, KL Pavilion, Farrenheit 88, Lot10, Imbi Plaza and Sungei Wang Plaza).
The Bukit Bintang Station is one of the most heavily used stations along the KL Monorail Line due to its proximity to Bukit Bintang major landmarks. The station is also the only Kuala Lumpur Monorail to include an overhead link bridge that directly connects its two train platforms. The length of the platform is longer in comparison with other KL Monorail stations.
Bukit Bintang MRT Station (MRT Kajang Line) and Bukit Bintang Monorail Station are in the strict sense, two distinct stations, although both originally had the same names (now distinct with the new branding). Paid zone-to-paid zone integration between the two is proposed but not observable at the moment.

Bukit Bintang Monorail Station's layout is different from other KL Monorail Line stations. The Station has three levels: The access points at street level, and the ticket area and adjoining platforms on two elevated levels. All levels are linked via stairways, escalators and elevators designated for disabled passengers. The Station is also the only Kuala Lumpur Monorail station to include an overhead link bridge that directly connects its two train platforms, instead of a link under the monorail platforms and track. The station's length is also longer in comparison with certain KL Monorail stations.
The Station's side platform is used by trains travelling at either direction of the line, and is entirely sheltered by roofs.
