The Dang Wangi Station is located less than one kilometer west from the Bukit Nanas Monorail Station, also located beside Bukit Nanas. Despite the distance, official transit maps designate both Stations as an interchange station between the Kelana Jaya Line and the Kuala Lumpur Monorail. Passengers need to tap out from one line when changing between the two lines.
Accordingly, passengers who intend to switch to either lines must walk along Jalan Ampang to reach either stations. Canopies along sidewalks were erected between the stations. An overhead footbridge with escalators directly in front of the Dang Wangi LRT Station, which crosses Jalan Ampang was also constructed to provide convenience to the pedestrian.
