The 37-kilometer LRT3 (project name) or LRT Bandar Utama–Klang Line (interim name), is a light rapid transit (LRT) line that is slated to be the third LRT system in the Klang Valley. The line will be operated by Rapid Rail. It was announced by Prasarana Malaysia on 24 April 2013.
11 - Bandar Utama-Klang Line
A total of 26 stations were planned before the new government revised the scheme, with a proposed two-kilometre distance between each station. One station was to be an underground station, with the other 25 being elevated.
The alignment is based on the Final Railway Scheme approved by the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD).
After a revision by the new government, the construction of Persiaran Hishamuddin station, which was supposed to be the only underground station for the line, was cancelled due to its high construction cost and expected low commuter demand in the area. This resulted in the reduction of the number of stations from 26 to 25 stations. Besides, the specifications of the stations were also changed. For instance, the former length of the stations were set for six-car trainsets, but now the proposed stations will be built for a maximum length of four-car trainsets. The changes in specifications are made in order to decrease the construction cost and reduce unnecessary elements from previous specifications.
Alignment and station list
The line currently has 25 permanent stations under construction, five of them being kept as provisional stations for the future.

This article contains a list of miscellaneous information. (August 2019)
- The 37-km rail line with 25 elevated stations.
- It is seamlessly connected with the:
- Kajang Line at Bandar Utama terminus
- Kelana Jaya Line at CGC-Glenmarie LRT station
- Initially, Klang station will be an interchange station with the KTM Komuter. However, due to the effort to reduce cost, the station will be built further away from the KTM Komuter station, resulting a same-name but different stations situation, similar to Salak Selatan and Sentul stations.
- LRT3 will be connected with 2 retail malls, namely TESCO Bukit Tinggi and AEON Bukit Tinggi in Bandar Bukit Tinggi, Klang.
- LRT3 will be equipped with the latest technologies including Communications-Based Train Controls (CBTC), Automatic Train Controls (ATC), Passenger Information Display System (PIDS), fire protection system and closed-circuit television (CCTV) system.
- LRT3 trains will have a maximum operating speed of 80 km/h (17% faster than the current Kelana Jaya Line) with the capacity of carrying 36,720 passengers per hour per direction.
- LRT3 is one out of four rapid transit lines in the Klang Valley that does not serve KL Sentral, the other three being the Ampang Line, Sri Petaling Line and the future Putrajaya Line, as well as the first rapid transit line in the Klang Valley that is entirely outside the borders of the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur.
- Reportedly, a planned underground station along Persiaran Hishamuddin is shelved and will possibly be replaced by a ground-level or elevated station instead, following objections from local residents. It will hence leave LRT3 without underground tracks, similar to the Ampang Line and KTM Komuter.
