THE MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line will have 31 stations. Of these, seven will be underground stations while the remaining 24 are elevated stations. MRT stations are designed to give commuters an aesthetically pleasing experience and a convenient and safe journey while providing functional efficiency.
THE architecture of the elevated stations along the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line is based on the wakaf. A wakaf is a traditional pavilion found in Malaysia built for travellers to stop and rest. Like a traditional wakaf, the elevated MRT stations are open-sided, allowing for natural lighting and ventilation.
THE concept for the design of underground stations is inspired by the Klang Gates Quartz Ridge. The multi-faceted quality of quartz and its colourful reflections echo the spirit of Malaysia, with its multi-racial and multi-cultural society. The seven underground stations will also have individual design themes, reflective of each station’s unique locale and environment.

ALL stations will have facilities such as escalators, lifts, customer service centres, ticket vending machines, toilets, prayer rooms and public telephones. They will also equipped with facilities for the disabled such as lifts and ramps, tactile guide and warning strips along walkways and platforms.
More than 8,000 parking bays will be made available at selected MRT stations. Most stations outside Kuala Lumpur’s central business district will also be served by feeder buses. Stations will also have adequate lay-bys to enable people to drop off passengers, while covered walkways will be built to allow people to walk to stations comfortably and safety.
Note: Station names are provisional and subject to final approval.
