The station was completed at a total cost of RM12.2 million, and opened to the public on August 2004.
The station consists of two levels: the upper, elevated level supports a ticketing concourse and faregates, while the lower ground level contains fully covered platforms linked from the upper level via staircases or elevators for handicap passengers. Breaking from the norm of older KTM Komuter stations, the Mid Valley station features high arched canopies and steel support frames, designs emulated in the Kepong Sentral station, another new KTM Komuter station opened later in 2006.
Mid Valley City
The station was constructed south with a cross bridge to Taman Seputeh, and is located 200m from Mid Valley City, which contains the Mid Valley Megamall and The Gardens, the former connected to the station by an overhead bridge. The station was intended to address the traffic problem surrounding the mall, which, prior to the completion of the station is only reachable via road vehicles, creating frequent traffic jams around the area. Parking services are unavailable directly at the station as the station was intended to primarily service the Mid Valley City area only, and parking areas are already supposedly provided in Mid Valley City itself. Nevertheless, bus services do stop within the vicinity of the station via Jalan Syed Putra, a major roadway which passes the station.
The Mid Valley station is one of only two KTM Komuter train stations that is located close or adjacent to a shopping complex. The other station is the Subang Jaya station at the Port Klang Line, constructed near the Subang Parade mall.
