The station is built in a similar design to most of the other above-ground stations on the Kelana Jaya Line. The large roof over the platform level is reminiscent of traditional Malay kampung architectural design. In addition to the main station, there is a side building that connects to the platform level which houses more shops and connects to the pedestrian overhead bridge over the Damansara-Puchong Expressway.

Kelana Jaya LRT station is also a rapidKL bus hub for the surrounding areas of Petaling Jaya. To serve this purpose, there is a major bus stop located opposite the expressway on the northbound carriageway, linked to the station by a pedestrian bridge. Buses depart from the station on the southbound carriageway, but many buses drop their passengers at the bus stop as this avoids congestion in the station bus terminal.
