The Batang Melaka railway station is a Malaysian train station named after the town of Batang Melaka, Jasin, Malacca. It is one of the only two stations, the other being Pulau Sebang/Tampin station, to serve the state of Malacca.

A new station was constructed as part of the Seremban-Gemas Electrified Double Tracking Project and began operations on 7 February 2014, replacing an old station which closed in May 2012 and subsequently demolished.[1]

The station is a stop for the KTM Intercity's Ekspres Selatan services. Between 10 October 2015 and June 2016, Keretapi Tanah Melayu operated the KTM Komuter through this station, and it was a stop for the Southern Shuttle service between Seremban and Gemas, before the line was cut short to Pulau Sebang/Tampin.[2]
