Hang Tuah Monorail Station
About the Station
Hang Tuah Monorail Station is an interchange station in the Pudu district of Kuala Lumpur between Kuala Lumpur Monorail and LRT Ampang Line / Sri Petaling Line. The Station opened alongside the rest of the train service on August 31, 2003.
The Hang Tuah Monorail Station is named after and was constructed over the southeast-bound lane of Jalan Hang Tuah. Hang Tuah is a legendary warrior who lived during the reign of Sultan Mansur Shah of the Sultanate of Malacca in the 15th century.
Located on the northwestern tip of Pudu, the Station is in the vicinity of the Methodist Boys School, Victoria Institution, the Bukit Bintang City Centre (BBCC) (the former Pudu Prison), the Kuala Lumpur City Police Headquarters and the Merdeka Stadium.
The Station, like virtually all other KL Monorail Stations, is elevated and built over Jalan Hang Tuah, and now directly integrated to the existing LRT Ampang Line / Sri Petaling Line. The Station has two exits that lead to either side of the road, and is directly located northeast from the LRT Ampang Line / Sri Petaling Line. The Station is only accessible via stairways and escalators. The Station's length is also longer in comparison to certain KL Monorail Stations.
The Hang Tuah Monorail Station is one of four Kuala Lumpur Monorail Stations that serves the Kuala Lumpur Golden Triangle locality, the other three being the Raja Chulan Station, the Bukit Bintang Station and the Imbi Station. The Station is also one of two KL Monorail Stations that is designated as an interchange to and from the LRT Lines, the other being the Titiwangsa Station.
The proximity of the Monorail Station with the LRT Ampang Line / Sri Petaling Line meant both stations are designated in transit maps as interchange stations between the two lines, and is subsequently use heavily primarily to reach Bukit Bintang and surrounding areas via the KL Monorail Line from the LRT Ampang Line / Sri Petaling Line.
Since 2012, the two stations have been physically linked so it is no longer required to exit one station or to use the public sidewalk outside the Station to reach the other Station or to change lines (Monorail to LRT or vice versa).
