Kallang MRT Station (EW10) is an above-ground station along the East West Line (EWL). It sits within the Boon Keng planning subzone, adjacent to the Kallang Bahru and Kampong Bugis subzones, and is physically located along Sims Avenue, at the junction with Lorong 1 Geylang.

The station is named after the Kallang area it serves, thought to be derived from factory mills or the Orang Laut tribe in the past. It serves clusters of HDB housing blocks around Lorong 1 Geylang, along with plenty of businesses and institutions located within shophouses in the Sims Avenue / Geylang Road area, and industrial estates in the Boon Keng area.

Bus connections are offered from Lorong 1 Geylang Bus Terminal, heading to other parts of the island.

Kallang station has two elevated East-West Line platforms in an island platform arrangement. Half-height Platform screen doors are installed at the platform edge for the safety of commuters, and retrofitted High volume, low speed (HVLS) fans keep passengers cool. Similar to most platforms along the Eastern side of the East West Line, a barrel vault roof design allows for a spacious interior that is easily navigated.

Passenger Information Systems, which are plasma display screens located at each platform, display expected train arrival times and key messages. Tactile flooring helps to guide the visually-handicapped from the platform to station exits. Escalators, lifts and stairs connect the Platform level to the Ticket Concourse level below.

It features faregates for automatic fare collection and provides access between paid and unpaid areas of the station, with at least least one bidirectional wide-swinging gate for the benefit of passengers-in-wheelchairs and those carrying bulky items or travelling with prams.

The station office functions as a Passenger Service Centre, and is staffed during operating hours, where commuters may make travel inquiries.
