The Kuala Lumpur Light Rail Transit (LRT) is a public rail transport service that runs 2 major routes, the Kelana Jaya LRT line and Ampang LRT line. 

    The Kelana Jaya LRT line operates an approximate 27-km course from north to south, between Kelana Jaya (in the Klang Valley, 17 km from the heart of KL) and Gombak (16 km from the city centre). The Ampang line is broken up into 2 destinations – travelling a distance of 20 km and 11 km respectively. Both routes start at the Sentul Timur LRT Station in the north of Kuala Lumpur, with the 1st route ending in Sri Petaling in the south, while the 2nd course ends in Ampang in the eastern suburbs of the city.
