Bukit Bintang Monorail station is a Malaysian elevated monorail train station that serves as a part of the Kuala Lumpur Monorail (KL Monorail), located in Kuala Lumpur and opened alongside the rest of the train service on August 31, 2003.
The station is situated at Bukit Bintang (translated from Malay to English as "Starhill"), a shopping hub in the Kuala Lumpur Golden Triangle commercial district. Erected over Jalan Sultan Ismail, the station is located directly south from the Jalan Sultan Ismail - Jalan Bukit Bintang intersection.
The station has three exits: The northwest exit leads to the west side of Jalan Sultan Ismail, while the southwest and southeast exists directly lead into the BB Plaza and Lot 10 shopping centres, respectively, via pedestrian bridges. Similar to the nearby Imbi station, the Bukit Bintang station is also directly within walking distance from various other shopping centres (including the Starhill Gallery, Low Yat Plaza, Pavilion, Farrenheit 88, Lot10, Imbi Plaza and Sungei Wang Plaza).
Due to its proximity to Bukit Bintang, the monorail station receives a high volume of passengers during peak hours and non-working days. The station is also the only Kuala Lumpur Monorail to include an overhead link bridge that directly connects its two train platforms. The station's length is also longer in comparison with certain KL Monorail stations.
Position within the Kuala Lumpur Monorail system
The Bukit Bintang station is the first station (alongside three other stations) towards the Titiwangsa station to be lined along Jalan Sultan Ismail. The line towards the Kuala Lumpur Sentral station thereafter turns west towards Jalan Imbi at the Jalan Sultan Ismail - Jalan Imbi intersection.
The station is one of four Kuala Lumpur Monorail stations that serves the Kuala Lumpur Golden Triangle locality, the other three being the Raja Chulan station (500 metres away), the Imbi station (also 500 metres away), and the Hang Tuah station (connected to the Ampang Line LRT).
