Reduced Operations of Bukit Panjang LRT during Off-Peak Periods from 1 Dec 2019

Train services along the Bukit Panjang LRT (BPLRT) will be reduced from Sunday, 1 December 2019 as part of the Bukit Panjang LRT Overhaul.

These measures come after Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan’s visit to Sengkang Depot on 30 August 2019, where he revealed that SMRT is studying the suspension of the Bukit Panjang LRT Line during off-peak periods and replacing the service with buses.


BPLRT – Service B only during Off Peak Hours

From Sunday, 1 December 2019, Service A (via Senja) will be suspended during off-peak hours as follows:

  • Weekdays: 9.00am – 5.00pm & 8.00pm – 11.30pm
  • Saturdays: 5.00am – 11.30pm
  • Sundays & Public Holidays: 5.20am – 11.30pm

Service B (via Petir) will continue to operate throughout the day. Service A (via Senja) will operate only during weekday peak hours.
