It aims to facilitate seamless travel between the two capital cities, enhance business linkages, and connect the peoples of both countries closer together.

The line will consist of eight stations, seven of which will be in Malaysia:

1-Kuala Lumpur (Bandar Malaysia)
2-Putrajaya
3-Seremban
4-Ayer Keroh
5-Muar
6-Batu Pahat
