Thanggam station is overground with an island platform serving LRT services in both directions of the West Loop. Outer and Inner loop services run clockwise and counter-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 at Level 2, one floor below.

Fixed platform barriers (without platform doors) are installed at the platform edge for commuters’ safety, and ceiling fans at the platform keep passengers cool.

Concourse

The station concourse at Level 2 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. As with other SKLRT stations, the concourse has two ticketing machines: one located within unpaid areas and the other serving both paid and unpaid areas, with a swing gate that allows either side to access the machine at any one time. Since the station is not staffed, an intercom system near the faregates allows commuters to speak with SKLRT Operations Control Centre for assistance.

The concourse leads to an overhead bridge that spans across Fernvale Road, with lifts, escalators and stairs connecting to street level. The overhead bridge also extends to Lorong Samak.
