Bukit Panjang LRT Shuttle Bus Service (October 2020)

Temporary rail replacement services (or LRT Shuttle Bus Services) will be operating every Sunday in October 2020. These arrangements facilitate full-day closures of the Bukit Panjang LRT (BPLRT) network due to ongoing overhaul works.

The closures in October 2020 are to facilitate testing of the BPLRT’s new signalling system.

Note that only LRT Shuttle B will be offered. Replacement for LRT Shuttle A is offered by SMRT Bus Service 976.

    I took a lrt shuttle service B from bangkit to segar. Bus plate was not complete ending with 1029A. A Chinese driver do not even stop at segar lrt station or designated segar lrt shuttle bus should stop. He insisted it’s infront which is already jelapang station and to my surprise he wanted to stop me near greenridge primary school which is even not a route of lrt. I told him why are you not stopping at segar lrt which is a traffic light behind. He keep pointing infront and I keep telling him infront is jelapang not segar. Please educate your bus shuttle service where is the stop and understand simple english. If I can learn simple mandarin, I do not expect them to understand Malay but understand English. It’s a universal language. Very disappointed. Plus, my ride to bangkit from segar was free shuttle despite asking the driver. And coming back with proud he ans tab your card. By tapping my card and you do not even know where is the stop that’s too much. Even after pressing the bell also you don’t stop really surprised me. Please understand English.
