The Plaza Rakyat LRT station is an elevated rapid transit station situated in central Kuala Lumpur.
The station is located near Pudu Sentral and it is part of the Ampang Line LRT network.
If you want to switch to a MRT train on the MRT Sungai Buloh – Kajang Line, you will be glad to know that this Plaza Rakyat LRT station is connected to the Merdeka MRT Station via a paid-to-paid pedestrian walkway.
The Plaza Rakyat LRT station is named after and located at the rear of Plaza Rakyat, a large mixed-use development project that was stalled during the economic crisis in 1997.
Due to its proximity with Plaza Rakyat as it was opened, the concourse level of the Plaza Rakyat LRT station was originally intended to directly link the south side of the complex.
A 150 metre-long covered pedestrian bridge and walkway was provided to connect the station to the south of the nearby Pudu Sentral.
Due to the suspension of the construction Plaza Rakyat project, the pedestrian bridge continues to serve passengers entering and leaving the station.
The platforms of the station are linked via escalators to a single concourse area just below the rapid transit line, where tickets are purchased.
The Plaza Rakyat LRT station is within walking distance to the famous China town and Bukit Bintang areas.
