The station serves the KTM Komuter and KTM Intercity train services. Intercity services were provided for the town from its early years through the 20th century, while KTM Komuter services were introduced in the mid-1990s, when a new station adjoining Jalan Bukit (Malay; English: Hill Road) was completed on the east side of the tracks to replace the older station adjoining Jalan Reko (Reko Road) on the west side of the tracks.
The current Kajang station inherits the original station's branch lines and responsibilities to manage railway switches, railway monitoring and goods delivery. The station employs a number of railway staff. The station is also connected to sheds for railway maintenance vehicles, as well as a warehouse. The station contains three platforms: One (platform 1) assigned at a side platform connected directly to the station building and two (platforms 2 and 3) assigned on an island platform. The platforms are lined along a set of four main lines; three run between the two platforms, and one runs along the other side of the island platform. The line adjoining platform 1 is an acceptance route, while the line aside it is a main route. The line along platform 2 could be used as a basic route for virtually any train service, while the platform 3 line is only used periodically when platform 2 is occupied by another train.
The current station has undergone a few remodellings throughout its service. A platform was extended to support Intercity trains that occasionally stretch longer than the station's platform. A second access area for the station was completed and opened for excess at the west side of the track in 2004, but has no operational faregates, and had only introduced manual ticketing services from early-2007 onwards. The installation of larger platform canopy roofs were also undertaken during the first half of 2007.
The Kajang Komuter station will be connecting to Kajang MRT station as interchange station to Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line via a link bridge. The MRT line is expected to operational in June 2017.
