Batang Benar Komuter station is a KTM Komuter train station located near and named after the small town of Batang Benar, Negeri Sembilan. The station is situated off the 4th kilometre of Jalan Pajam, 4 kilometres from the old town of Nilai and the Nilai Komuter station.

The station primarily serves Rawang-Seremban Line train services. In addition, the station is situated along a four-lane railway network (consisting of two acceptance routes at both sides and two basic routes in the middle), in charge of managing railway switches and supports a small railway staff. The station has only two platforms for northbound or southbound passengers.

The station is located close to a hillside rock quarry visible from the railroad and station. As such, the station's line is also used to hold hopper cars that receive pebbles from the mine via lorries.
