Hentian Putra (GPS: 3.16759, 101.69043) is a now disused bus terminal in Kuala Lumpur. It is located on Jalan Putra in the Chow Kit area, near to Putra World Trade Centre. Hentian Putra was in use until end of November, 2014, after which all bus serves of that terminal was relocated to Terminal Bersepadu Selatan at Bandar Tasik Selatan. Hentian Putra was the bus terminal for long-distance express buses from the East Coast states of Pahang, Terengganu and Kelantan.

Operations at Hentian Putra was affected by water pipe damage, which resulted in bus services having to be moved out of the terminal, with only the ticket counters in operation. Initially the Kuala Lumpur City Hall had intended to upgrade the terminal, but now that bus services have been shifted elsewhere, there is no immediate plans for upgrading of the disused terminal building.
