The Taman Tun Dr Ismail MRT station, also known as the TTDI station, is an elevated MRT station on the MRT Kajang Line serving the suburb of Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur and Damansara Utama, Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
The Taman Tun Dr Ismail MRT station is one of the stations being built as part of the Klang Valley Mass Rapid Transit (KVMRT) project on the MRT Kajang Line.

It was opened on 16 December 2016 under Phase One operations of the MRT Kajang Line.
The Taman Tun Dr Ismail MRT station has an outlet of the Japanese chain convenience store FamilyMart, located at the unpaid section of the station concourse level.
The station’s location was however the third choice, after two earlier locations received objections during the public display of the line (mandatory under existing laws).
The original location of the TTDI MRT Station was next to the TTDI fire station, which was objected and forced Prasarana (project owner pre- establishment of MRT Corp) to propose shifting it next to the TTDI Wet Market, some 300 metres away.
This too was not popular, and the majority of objections came from residents of Jalan SS20/10 in Damansara Kim across the LDP.
The fear was that parking along the road and area would be congested by future MRT users.
The final location necessitated the acquisition of two Caltex petrol stations on each side of the elevated station.
There was also a small plot of land that could have been the site of a multi-storey park and ride (MSPR) building.
The MSPR was included in the approved plan, but MRT Corp later sought the approval of the Land Public Transport Authority (SPAD) to remove the MSPR.
The odd shape of the small plot available meant that the number of bays were small (less than 120 bays) making the cost per bay too high.
The allotted bays were then added to the Phileo Damansara Station MSPR.
The Taman Tun Dr Ismail MRT station has a layout and design similar to that of most other elevated stations on the line (except the terminus and underground stations).
