The Kota Kinabalu Line (Malay: Laluan Kota Kinabalu) is a proposed light rapid transit (LRT) system network in Kota Kinabalu as one of the method to ease traffic congestion in the city.[1] The proposal has been considered,[2][3] and as been reported in the government website, the project was in the ground breaking process under the Kota Kinabalu development plan.[4] The current under construction project of the Aeropod rail station in Tanjung Aru also has made a provision for LRT in their plan.[5]

In early 2017, an assemblyman from Inanam Roland Chia have stressed the importance to have an LRT to solve the present traffic congestion in Kota Kinabalu which are getting worse, telling the federal government to look the example from other modern countries without waiting another years for the city population to reach one million.[6] As a response, the state government is looking to study on the proposal with the state capital mayor said the project must be effective and has economic returns.[7]
