Sam Kee station is overground with an island platform serving LRT services in both directions of the West Loop. Inner and Outer loop services run counter-clockwise and clockwise around the loop respectively.
Passenger Information Systems, which are LED displays located at each platform, display the route of the next train and scrolls through messages, while an analog clock gives the time. Tactile flooring helps to guide the visually-handicapped from the platform to the station exits. A staircase and lift connect the platforms to the ticket concourse on the ground floor.
The station concourse at ground level features faregates for automatic fare collection and provides access between paid and unpaid areas of the station, with a bidirectional wide-swinging gate for the benefit of passengers-in-wheelchairs and those carrying bulky items or travelling with prams.
A General Ticketing Machine at the concourse allow commuters to purchase tickets for single or multiple journeys, and perform contactless card transactions. It serves both paid and unpaid areas, with a swing gate that allows either side to access the machine at any one time. An additional Top Up Machine in the unpaid areas allows for contactless card transactions only. Since the station is not staffed, an intercom system near the faregates allows commuters to speak with PGLRT Operations Control Centre for assistance.
Sam Kee station is the only station on the Punggol LRT network to not be built on a road median. As a result, it features an interior different from other LRT stations.
Sam Kee LRT station has two exits side by side at ground level. Barrier-free accessibility is offered via ramps.
