Station Facts

Cahaya LRT station is a Malaysian at-grade rapid transit station situated near and named after the nearby Taman Cahaya, in Ampang Jaya, Selangor. The station is part of the Sentul Timur-Ampang branch of the Ampang Line (formerly known as STAR, and the Ampang and Sri Petaling Lines),

The station was opened on December 16, 1996, as part of the first phase of the STAR system's opening, alongside 13 adjoining stations along the Sultan Ismail-Ampang route.


About Cahaya Station

Cahaya LRT station is named after the Ampang Jaya locality of Taman Cahaya, and is stationed in an area bordering the suburbs of Pandan Indah towards the south, and Taman Cahaya and Taman Cahaya Indah towards the north. The station is also accessible from Taman Nirvana north and Kampung Baru Ampang south. The station is linked to two roadways: One road off Jalan Cahaya 7 from Taman Cahaya Indah and another off Jalan Pandan Cahaya 1/2 from Pandah Indah.

Cahaya LRT station stands as a low-rise station along two tracks for trains traveling in opposite direction. However, the station was constructed as an at-grade structure significantly lower than most other conventional at-grade stations in the Ampang Line, mainly those along the Miharja-Cahaya route. The station itself therefore does not feature any public walkway running underneath the tracks and platforms, as other at-grade stations along the route have. Instead, patrons are provided with stairways on opposite sides of the track of a road-based flyover over the tracks just northeast. The station's lower height may be attributed to the aforementioned flyover constructed close to the station, restricting the height of the adjoining tracks towards the Ampang terminal, thus affecting the height of the station.

As the station is at-grade and features two side platforms, the station designates individual ticketing areas for each of the station's two platforms at their level, ensuring any access to trains traveling the opposite direction is not freely possible. The principal styling of the station is similar to most other stations in the line, featuring curved roofs supported by latticed frames, and white plastered walls and pillars. Because stairways are only used to link street level with the station's ticket areas and platforms, the station is not accommodative to disabled users.
