The first Sungai Buloh railway station opened in 1892 when the section of the main railway line, now the KTM West Coast Line between Batu Junction and Rawang was opened.
KTM Komuter station
The station underwent refurbishment as part of the Klang Valley Electrification and Double Tracking Project which saw the station becoming one of the stations of the KTM Komuter service in 1995. The station was originally on the Rawang-Seremban Line until 2016 when a revamp of the KTM Komuter service saw the station serving the Port Klang Line with trains running between Tanjung Malim and Port Klang.
The station had four tracks, with two side platforms serving the two outer tracks. A pedestrian overhead bridge, which later had lifts to make the bridge disabled friendly, linked to the two platforms. The main entrance together with the main station building was located on the south-bound platform.
Integrated interchange station
When construction of the Klang Valley MRT Project began in 2010, the Sungai Buloh MRT Station was designed to be one of two interchange stations between the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line and the Keretapi Tanah Melayu railway network. The other interchange station is Kajang station.
The Sungai Buloh KTM Station was already in existence at the location and the new MRT station was constructed next to it, occupying what was previously the at-grade open air car park.
The MRT station is an elevated station structure with a common elevated concourse linking the MRT paid area with the KTM paid area. The ticket vending machines and ticketing offices for both services, as well as two retail outlets are located at this common concourse. The concourse was constructed over the four KTM tracks.
From this common concourse, stairs and escalators descend to the two at-grade side platforms within the KTM paid area, while stairs and escalators as well as lifts bring passengers up to the single island platform for the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line.
The main entrance (Entrance A) consists of escalators, stairs and lifts rising from at-grade level to the common concourse, serving both MRT and KTM users. Another entrance (Entrance B) is located at the south side of the common concourse, and is linked to a staircase down to the Kuala Lumpur-bound side of Jalan Kuala Selangor, as well as a pedestrian overhead bridge across Jalan Kuala Selangor for access to the Kuala Selangor-bound side of the road.
With the new integrated station, the KTM station structure was dismantled. The ticketing office and other offices were also relocated from the original station to the common concourse. Only the original platforms retain their original function. The KTM tracks were also not modified for the renovation.
At the at-grade level, bays for feeder buses and taxis and drop off lay-bys for private-vehicles as well as parking for the disabled were built as part of the construction of the MRT station.
