The Putrajaya Monorail currently is an incomplete monorail system in Putrajaya, Malaysia. Putrajaya was originally planned to include a light rail system, but plans were changed, and a monorail plan was selected instead, after the construction of tunnels for aforementioned system began. It called for two sublines; Line 1, which is a 12 km (7.5 mi) monorail route with 17 stations and Line 2, which is a 6 km (3.7 mi) monorail route with 6 stations. In 2019, the government proposed a new light rapid transit (LRT) system may be built to revive the incomplete monorail project. but currently, the government decided to resume this project.
Construction was halted in 2004 The monorail will include the Monorail Suspension Bridge, currently incomplete, and the Putra Bridge. The monorail line would allow transfers to KLIA Transit, connecting to Kuala Lumpur and Kuala Lumpur International Airport, at Putrajaya/Cyberjaya ERL station. The project originally cost RM400 million., and will probably resume as the city becomes more populated.
Putrajaya Monorail Project Revival
MMC Corporation Berhad (MMC) has submitted a proposal to the Economic Council (EC) to revive the stalled monorail project since 2004 due to budget constraints. Hence, Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) will now be conducting a feasibility study for monorail and tram services for both Putrajaya and Cyberjaya.
Putrajaya Tram Proposal
Federal Territories Minister, Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor, had hoped to get tram infrastructure construction going within three years. Now under the jurisdiction of the Economic Council, the minister saw the development of the tram system as an alternative solution to the abandoned monorail projects and recommended it be built due to cost considerations. 
SPAD had hoped to open up tenders for the tram system between Putrajaya and Bangi in 2018 after getting the green light from EC. This move was announced by SPAD during their annual review of public transportation for 2017. The tram system was selected due to its relatively cheaper price of construction and operation compared to conventional rail systems.
The tram system is expected to be integrated with the existing and future rail lines between Putrajaya and Bangi and will also cover the distance between Cyberjaya and Kajang. The new MRT Sungai Buloh - Kajang Line only reaches Kajang but MRT Sungai Buloh - Serdang - Putrajaya Line will reach Putrajaya Sentral when it is completed in the future. The future HSR station located at Kampung Abu Bakar Baginda will be one of the expected stops along the planned tram route.
The stretch between Putrajaya and Bangi has been selected as the first phase to be constructed due to their wide roads, allowing the tram system to share the traffic.
