Bangsar (or BANK RAKYAT-Bangsar for sponsorship reasons) [1] is a LRT station on the Kelana Jaya Line located at Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur. It is an elevated station exactly located above Jalan Bangsar. Although it is located at Jalan Bangsar, it is located at quite a distance from most parts of Bangsar, namely Bangsar Baru.

Station Naming Rights Program[edit]

Formerly known as Bangsar since its operation on September 1, 1998, the station was renamed to BANK RAKYAT-Bangsar after Bank Rakyat was given naming rights by Prasarana Malaysia. It is the first three stations under pilot program of Station Naming Rights since launched in October 2015.[2][3][4]
