Putrajaya is the administrative centre of Malaysia located in the Federal Territory of Putrajaya, south of Kuala Lumpur. Cyberjaya is a city in Sepang District, Selangor, and next to Putrajaya.
Putrajaya and Cyberjaya were developed at the same time, with Putrajaya being established in 1995 and Cyberjaya in 1997.
Putrajaya and Cyberjaya are approximately halfway between Kuala Lumpur and Kuala Lumpur International Airport. The KLIA Ekspres was the first railway to serve the cities, and in 2023 an MRT line opened. Over the years there have been other transit proposals, including a monorail, tram, and ART.
