The LEP will be the first rail network to be operated in the Kinrara and Puchong, which have an estimated population of 400,000 people.
The service is set to change the way thousands of people commute daily and boost the property prices in Bandar Kinrara, which is served by Alam Sutera and BK5 stations.

The Kinrara BK5 station is strategically located in the heart of Bandar Kinrara and will serve residents from Bandar Kinrara 2 to Bandar Kinrara 8, including the nearby Taman Kinrara and Taman Bukit Kuchai.
The station has a dedicated park-and-ride facility and is located near the new BK5 commercial hub, including the nearby Giant Bandar Kinrara.
The Awan Besar and Muhibbah stations will serve residents in Taman OUG.
All stations are equipped with basic facilities such as toilets, surau, lifts, and shops. There are also special facilities for the disabled.
