The KL Monorail is an urban monorail system (previously known as Peoplemover Rapid Transit - PRT) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It opened on 31 August 2003, and serves 11 stations running 8.6 km (5 mi) with two parallel elevated tracks. It connects the Kuala Lumpur Sentral transport hub with the "Golden Triangle". It was completed at a cost of MYR 1.18 billion by the KL Infrastructure Group (KL Infra).

KL Infra declared bankruptcy on 15 May 2007 after repeatedly missing loan repayments. On 29 November 2007, Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad (SPNB) signed a sale-and-purchase agreement with KL Monorail Systems Sdn Bhd (KLMS). The current operator for the KL Monorail system is KL StarRail Sdn Bhd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of SPNB.

According to Ministry of Transport statistics, the annual ridership for RapidKL Monorail in 2008 was 21,765,233.[1]
