This LRT station is situated near, and named after the Masjid Jamek in central Kuala Lumpur.
Despite being called an interchange station, up until 28 November 2011, there were effectively two Masjid Jamek stations in operational terms.
An elevated Masjid Jamek LRT station served the Ampang Line while an underground Masjid Jamek LRT station served the Kelana Jaya Line, each having their own ticketting systems which were not integrated with each other’s.
Commuters had to exit one system, purchase a new ticket before entering the other system if they wanted to transfer from one line to the other.
Prior to 2006 when a plaza was built above the Klang River linking the stations, Ampang Line’s Masjid Jamek station and Kelana Jaya Line’s Masjid Jamek station were two physically separate buildings.
There were limited pedestrian walkways between the two stations resulting in commuters having to be exposed to the sun and rain, and even having to cross the busy Jalan Tun Perak, just to change from one line to the other.
On 28 November 2011, the fare gates which kept the two systems separated were removed and the plaza which physically linked the two stations became part of the “paid (or restricted) zone” of a physically integrated Masjid Jamek Station.
This opening allowed commuters to transfer from one line to the other without leaving the system for the first time since the two stations became operational.
