Bukit Panjang LRT Shuttle Bus Service (Nov – Dec 2017)

Temporary rail replacement services (LRT Shuttle Bus Services) serving the entire Bukit Panjang LRT network will be operating across Sunday mornings from 12 November 2017 to 31 December 2017 to facilitate later Bukit Panjang LRT train service commencement times.

The rail replacement service operates in lieu of the later opening of BPLRT stations to facilitate more time for engineering staff to expedite the renewal of ageing track infrastructure such as rail mounting frames and rail expansion joints on the BPLRT network.


As such, Bukit Panjang LRT train services will commence operations at 0700hrs on the following Sundays:

November 12, 19 & 26 December 3, 10, 17, 24 & 31

Affected Bukit Panjang LRT stations are:

As regular train service at BP14  Ten Mile Junction only commences from 1000hrs on Sundays, the station is not affected by the late opening arrangements.

The first train timings at the affected LRT Stations on affected Sundays are listed below:
