|KL Monorail Station|
Seamless physical and fare integration was achieved on 1 March 2012 when the "paid-up" or restricted areas of both the LRT and monorail stations, which previously operated as two separate stations, were linked up, allowing passengers to transfer without needing to buy new tickets for the first time since the monorail became operational in 2003.
Located on the northwestern tip of Pudu, the station is in the vicinity of the Methodist Boys School, Victoria Institution, the former Pudu Prison, the Hang Tuah police station and the National Stadium.
The Hang Tuah monorail 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 Imbi station.
The proximity of the Hang Tuah monorail station with the Ampang Line Hang Tuah LRT station meant both stations are designated in transit maps as interchange stations between the two lines, and is subsequently use heavily primarily to reach Bukit Bintang (Star Hill) and surrounding areas via the monorail line from the Ampang Line.
Since 2012, the two stations have been physically linked so it is no longer required to exit one station or to use the public sidewalk outside the station to reach the other station or to change lines (monorail to LRT or vice versa).
