Bangi Komuter station is a KTM Komuter train station located at and named after the small town of Bangi, Selangor. The station is situated on the northeast tip of the town, and is primarily assigned to serve Rawang-Seremban Line train services.

As are larger stations along the Komuter lines, the Bangi station is situated along three lanes of railway lines (two acceptance routes at both ends and one basic routes in the middle). As such the station is also in charge of managing railway switches and supports a small railway staff.

The Bangi Komuter station has a slightly unusual track and platform configuration. The station contains a side platform (platform 1) adjoining the station building and an island platform (platforms 2 and 3) connected by a pedestrian bridge; two railway lines run between the platforms, while one line runs on the other side of the island platform. This basically allows Komuter services to utilise all three tracks along the line, but in practice, KTM Komuter trains are only assigned to travel along the station's two outlying tracks (platforms 1 and 3), while the remaining track in between (connected to platform 2) is assigned as a basic route for southbound trains that are simply passing through. The track along platform 1 is a basic route.

Due to its relatively close proximity to the town of Bangi, the station receives a fair number of patrons using the Komuter service.
