The monorail route mainly serves major commercial areas such as Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman and Chow Kit as well as tourist areas like Bukit Bintang and main interchanges like KL Sentral.

The KL Monorail is seen by many to be Kuala Lumpur's missing transport link because it will connect with and complement the other urban transportation systems.

Since the KL Monorail train has to pass through very developed and expensive KL areas, a monorail train ride running over the median of public main roads is the most cost-effective, enjoyable sight-seeing choice.

The KL Monorail is a straddle system and the guideway runs mainly above the median of main roads in Kuala Lumpur's central business district.
