Sentral (KL Sentral) or Sentral Kuala Lumpur refers to the integrated
complex which houses the main railway station of Kuala Lumpur, Opened on
April 16, 2001, it was built to replace the old Kuala Lumpur Railway
Station, a colonial-era landmark which remains open for commuter trains
only. KL Sentral is the largest train station in Southeast Asia.
Sentral was designed as an intermodal transportation hub. Most of Kuala
Lumpur's rail-based public transportation serve KL Station while many
intercity trains serving Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore begin here.
Stesen Sentral also has retail and food outlets as well as a food
court. Hidden from public view, Stesen Sentral also houses KTM's
maintenance depot which is located beneath the complex.

KL City Air Terminal
Located within Stesen Sentral, the KL City Air Terminal (KL CAT) is
virtually an extension of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.
Besides being the departure and arrival point for the KLIA Ekspres, KL
CAT also has luggage check-in services. There are plans to offer
check-out service but this is not yet available.
Currently, only passengers flying Malaysia Airlines, Cathay Pacific and
Royal Brunei Airlines can check-in their luggage at KL CAT. Those flying
other airlines can only do so at KLIA.
KL Sentral Monorail Station
The monorail station is not directly connected to the Kuala Lumpur
Sentral transport hub, despite its proximity to the building. Rather,
passengers that intend to reach KL Sentral Monorail Station from the
station or vice versa must walk 140 metres across a marketplace. It is
located along Jalan Tun Sambanthan in Brickfields. The station is a
terminating stop in the KL Monorail line. Because the station serves as
both the first and final stop,
