The Bukit Panjang LRT station is overground with two side platforms, used for trains travelling in either direction.

Services A, B and C operate out of Bangkit station. With Service A and C (via  BP13  Senja) plying the clockwise loop and Service B (via  BP7  Petir) plying the counter-clockwise loop, they are located at opposite platforms. All services head to Bukit Panjang before branching off to either Choa Chu Kang or Ten Mile Junction.

Passenger Information Systems, which are LED displays located at each platform, display expected train arrival times 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. Staircases and lifts connect both platforms to the ticket concourse, which leads to street level.

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

Service C operates between 10am to 4pm and 9pm to 11.10pm on Weekdays. On Weekends and Public Holidays, operating hours are between 10am to 11.10pm. The last Service C train from Ten Mile Junction will terminate at Bukit Panjang station.


The station concourse feature faregates for automatic fare collection and provides access between paid and unpaid areas of the station, with at least one 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 concourses allow commuters to purchase tickets for single or multiple journeys, and perform contactless card transactions. As with other BPLRT stations, the concourse only has one ticketing machine 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 BPLRT Operations Control Centre for assistance.


Bangkit LRT station has a single exit at street level. Barrier-free accessibility is offered via wheelchair ramps.
