Bukit Jalil is a suburb about 20 km south of Kuala Lumpur. It is a small suburb bounded by the National Sports Complex on the east, the Shah Alam Expressway on the north, city boundaries to the west, and the Puchong-Sungai Besi Highway as well as city boundaries to the south. It was known as the Bukit Jalil Estate until 1992, when it was developed into the National Sports Complex for the 1998 Commonwealth Games. It was used as a filming location for the 1999 movie Entrapment, although the sign was changed to that of Pudu.[1]

Bukit Jalil is linked to other parts of Klang Valley via the Damansara-Puchong Expressway (LDP) and the Puchong-Sungai Besi Highway. It is also accessible via the Shah Alam Expressway, the Maju Expressway (MEX, formerly the Kuala Lumpur-Putrajaya Expressway (KLPE)), and the New Pantai Expressway (NPE). It is served by the Ampang Line Bukit Jalil LRT station and Sri Petaling LRT station.

Beginning from April 2010, Bukit Jalil hosted a temporary bus station while the Puduraya Bus Station underwent renovation. This temporary move was intended to last four months but as of December 2010 the temporary bus station in Bukit Jalil was still active because of the renovation delay in the Puduraya bus station.[2]
