The City Hall station has two stacked island platforms for four platforms. The NSL and EWL each have two tracks, allowing for cross-platform interaction. Passengers coming on the EWL from the east can go across the platform to the NSL, which will take them to Orchard and Toa Payoh, and vice versa (Eastbound).
The air-conditioned station is separated from the tunnel environment by full-height Platform screen doors, which improve commuter safety and station comfort. The two platform levels get linked to the station concourse above through escalators, steps, and a lift. Expected train arrival times and messages get displayed on passenger information systems, which are plasma display panels positioned at each platform.

It has faregates for automatic fee collection and provides access between the station’s paid and unpaid sectors, including at least one bidirectional wide-swinging gate for passengers in wheelchairs, carrying heavy objects, or those traveling with prams.
Commuters can buy tickets for single or many travels at General Ticketing Machines, which also accept contactless card transactions like TransitLink Add Value Machines. Commuters can make travel queries at the station office, which serves as a Passenger Service Centre during operating hours.
