History

During Phase One operation of the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line, this station was the southern terminus of the line where all passengers had to disembark. Trains would leave the station and made a turn back at the cross-over track above Jalan Sultan Abdul Halim before heading back towards Sungai Buloh. With the opening of Phase Two on 17 July 2017, the southern terminus of the station became Kajang station.
