WHY is there a NEED FOR CHANGES TO OPERATING HOURS?

The shorter operating hours will provide more hours for our engineers to intensify and speed up maintenance and asset renewal works.

Commuters can look forward to increased train service reliability when these works are completed.

 

WHAT ALTERNATIVES ARE THERE?

Shuttle Bus Service 6 will be available for commuters to travel between Bugis and Tanah Merah MRT stations from 11.00pm on the affected dates. The shuttle buses will stop at designated bus stops/bus interchanges near affected stations.

COMMUTERS ADVISED TO PLAN AHEAD

As the timing of the last trains departing each station on affected days will vary, commuters are advised to check for station-specific timings on SMRT’s website and social media platforms when planning journeys on affected dates.

Commuters are advised to cater for additional travelling time when travelling between MRT stations using the shuttle bus services and to plan their journeys in advance and travel via other MRT lines or bus services where possible.
