About Bank Negara Station

Before the electrification works began, there was a halt located just about 30 metres before the present location. It was just a simple shelter with no amenities of any kind - very much like a bus-stop. The diesel engine trains used to ply this route picking up passengers for as low as RM1.00 per trip for a journey of 23 km to Subang Jaya. Tickets then were sold on board. It has since been dismantled and is now just a patch of hill-side.

The present halt was formed during the double tracking and electrification of railway lines in Kuala Lumpur, Selangor and Negeri Sembilan between 1990 and 1994, in preparation for the launch of KTM Komuter services. Since its opening in 1995, the halt has remained unchanged in both its position in the railway system and layout. Beginning June 2007, however, the halt underwent major reconstruction.

The new station have a new concourse over the tracks and platforms. The new concourse have a ticketing booth, ticket vending machines, prayer area and retail outlets. It also have a common entrance to the two platforms where previously, they could only be accessed through separate gates. The new halt have lifts for passengers to access the platforms, making the halt disabled-friendly.
 

Interchange Station

While not well-integrated, the Bank Negara halt is designated in official transit maps as an interchange station with the RapidKL LRT Ampang Line's Bandaraya station. Interchanges between the stations require that one exit either stations and cross footbridge that crosses a major roadway and the Gombak River. The estimated walking distance between the stations is 140 metres.

The Bandaraya station is further situated nearby bus stops along Jalan Raja Laut, Jalan Dang Wangi and Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman.
