Putrajaya Line will serve a corridor with a population of around 2 million people stretching from Kwasa Damansara, a new township development in northwest Kuala Lumpur and its southern suburbs, to Putrajaya, Malaysia’s federal administrative centre.

There will be 10 interchange stations and connecting stations, making it much easier for commuters to transfer from the Putrajaya Line to existing and future rail lines, including the future Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail. Sixteen stations will have park and ride facilities.
