HistoryEdit

Opened in 1998 as part of the former STAR LRT line's second phase of development, the station was intended to connect Titiwangsa to other parts of the city and surrounding areas. Under Phase 2 of the STAR line, a 15 km track with 11 stations was built to serve the northern and southern areas of Kuala Lumpur to cater for the Commonwealth Village and the National Sports Complex in Bukit Jalil, during the 1998 Commonwealth Games in Kuala Lumpur.

Titiwangsa LRT stationEdit

The Titiwangsa LRT station is a light rapid transit (LRT) station along the common route of the Ampang Line and Sri Petaling Line for trains travelling south towards Ampang or Putra Heights, or north towards Sentul Timur. Opened in 1998 as part of the former STAR LRT line's second phase of development, the station was intended to connect Titiwangsa to other parts of the city and surrounding areas. The station, like all stations along the northern stretch of the LRT line, is elevated, with platforms located on the top floor and ticketing facilities located on the mid-level concourse.

Titiwangsa Monorail stationEdit

The Titiwangsa Monorail station is a later addition in the area that is intended to connect the LRT station with the KL Monorail. The station was constructed over Jalan Tun Razak and was completed in 2003, serving as the northern terminus of KL Monorail, with a buffer stop directly after the station. Like the LRT station, the monorail station sports somewhat similar level designs. The station was constructed with a Spanish solution layout, similar to the KL Sentral Monorail station. The station is one of two KL Monorail stations that is designated as an interchange with the Ampang and Sri Petaling Lines, the other being the Hang Tuah station.

Integrated LRT and Monorail stationEdit

Seamless transfer and fare integration was achieved on 1 March 2012 when the "paid-area" or restricted areas of both the LRT and monorail stations, which previously operated as two separate stations, were linked up with a footbridge, allowing passengers to transfer without needing to buy new tokens for the first time since the monorail became operational in 2003.

Titiwangsa MRT stationEdit

The Titiwangsa MRT station is a mass rapid transit (MRT) station under construction. It is one of the stations being built as part of the Klang Valley Mass Rapid Transit (KVMRT) project on the Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya Line station for the Sungai Buloh–Serdang–Putrajaya MRT line. Upon completion, it will be fully integrated with the LRT and monorail lines. It is planned to open around July 2022.[2]
