The Bandar Utama station is a mass rapid transit (MRT) station serving the suburb of Bandar Utama in Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia as well as parts of Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur which lie across the Damansara-Puchong Expressway from the station.

It is one of the stations on the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line. It was opened on 16 December 2016 under phase one operations of the line.[1]

This station is located next to the 1 Utama Shopping Centre, one of the biggest shopping malls in the Klang Valley.[2] Other well-known landmarks near the station are Sri Pentas (TV3 headquarters), One World Hotel, Plaza IBM and KPMG Tower. A pedestrian link bridge which was opened on 1 February 2018 links the station with these buildings.

This station will serve as an interchange station to the proposed LRT 3 line (tentatively named the Bandar Utama-Klang Line) which links Bandar Utama to Johan Setia in Klang.[3]

Station Features[edit]

Concourse level of the station.

The station is located beside the Damansara-Puchong Expressway directly behind the Sri Pentas Building in Bandar Utama. The station's support columns are located between the expressway and the water channel which runs parallel to the expressway.

The station adopts the standard elevated station design for the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line with two side platforms above the concourse level.

However, unlike the other elevated stations, there are no escalators, lifts or staircases linking the station directly with the ground level. Neither are there any lay-bys for buses, taxis and cars at the ground level directly below the station. Access to the station is via link bridges from the 1Powerhouse Building, where the feeder bus stop and park and ride facilities are located, and from One World Hotel and 1 Utama Shopping Centre.

Exits and entrances[edit]

Access to the station is via two pedestrian link bridges - one connecting Entrance A of the station to the neighbouring 1Powerhouse Building, and another connecting Entrance B with One World Hotel and the 1 Utama Shopping Centre. The second link bridge was opened on 1 February 2018.[4]

All these buildings are owned by Bandar Utama City Corporation Sdn Bhd, making this station the only one in the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line where access to the station is via properties owned by other entities. There is no access to the station from the ground level directly beneath the station along the Damansara-Puchong Expressway. The lay-by and stairs at this location are for emergency purposes only.

The 1Powerhouse Building houses the feeder bus stop at the ground level, and the park and ride facility for the station which takes up two basement levels. Taxi and private vehicle drop-off areas are also located at the ground floor of the building.
