The Rawang railway station is a railway station in Rawang, Selangor, Malaysia that serves as both the KTM Komuter (of the Rawang-Seremban Route) and KTM Intercity train services. It is the northern most terminus for passenger services on this Rawang-Seremban Route, and was built to cater the traffic around the suburb of Rawang as there were no other commuter or mass transit services in the Klang Valley that stopped here before the arrival of the KTM Komuter.


On April 21, 2007, a shuttle service between Rawang and Rasa was launched. The service, which extends the KTM Komuter network by 22 km, covers three new stations, namely Serendah, Batang Kali and Rasa. This is the first stretch of the problem-prone and much-delayed Rawang-Ipoh electrification and double-tracking project to become operational. This service was extended to Kuala Kubu Bharu on January 5, 2008. On June 1, 2009, the service was further extended to Tanjung Malim. For more details on the extension, see Rawang-Tanjung Malim Shuttle Route.
