Imbi 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's similar location and proximity to a shopping district as the Bukit Bintang station means that the Imbi station is also one of the most heavily used stations along the KL Monorail line.

Location[edit]

The station is situated in and named after the district of Imbi, directly over Jalan Imbi (English: Imbi Road) beside the northeast tip of the Berjaya Times Square shopping centre and just east from Plaza Berjaya. The Berjaya Time Square was opened two months after the station began operation. The station features a total of four exits: Two exits towards the west of the station lead into the Berjaya Time Square and another shopping arcade on the opposite side of the road, while the remaining two exits lead eastward onto both sides of Jalan Imbi.

The Imbi station is also within a close range of several more shopping centres near Bukit Bintang (Star Hill), including the Low Yat Plaza, Imbi Plaza, Sungei Wang Plaza and BB Plaza. Because of its location, the station receives a high number of passengers during peak hours and non-working days.

Position within the Kuala Lumpur Monorail system[edit]

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, the Bukit Bintang station and the Hang Tuah station (connected to the Ampang Line).
