Circle Line Rail Bridging Service

The Circle Line (CCL) Rail Bridging Service (or CCL free shuttle bus service / CCL Bridging Bus) is an emergency bus service which is provided in the event of a Train Service Disruption involving the Circle Line, which is operated by SMRT Trains.

When a section of the Circle Line is suspended, this service may be activated to ferry affected commuters between affected stations, hence minimizing the impact of rail disruptions on commuters. This service may also be activated should there be a significant addition of expected travelling time along the CCL.
