Pasir Panjang Station has two platforms in an island platform arrangement. Full-height Platform screen doors isolate the air-conditioned station from the tunnel environment, enhancing commuter safety and station comfort. A set of escalators, stairs and a lift connects the platform level to the concourse level one floor above. The concourse wraps around the platform, creating a large interior space which gives the station a spacious feel.
Passenger Information Systems, which are plasma display screens located at each platform, display expected train arrival times and key messages. Tactile flooring helps to guide the visually-handicapped from the platform to the station exits.
The station concourse at Basement 1 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.
General Ticketing Machines allow commuters to purchase tickets for single or multiple journeys, and along with Top-up Machines, offer contactless card transactions. The station office functions as a Passenger Service Centre, and is staffed during operating hours, where commuters may make travel inquiries or perform card transactions using cash payment.

Art in Transit: “Lieutenant Adnan” by Ho Tzu Nyen
Lieutenant Adnan Saidi was a 27 year old infantry officer whose bravery and eventual sacrifice, in one of the fiercest battles in Singapore’s history, makes him the stuff of legends. This is the Battle of Pasir Panjang, fought against the Japanese during World War Two. Situated in close proximity to the battle site, this artwork at Pasir Panjang station honours the fighting spirit of this war hero, by taking the form of an imaginary film, featuring in the leading, titular role, popular real-life action star, Aaron Aziz. The artwork comprises three sets of images, namely: a vertical centrepiece at the lift shaft, a diptych at both ends of the platform, and a quartet of images at the concourse, near to the station control. The vertical centrepiece takes the form of film-stills that sequentially reconstruct a heroic action, while the platform diptych narrates the life story of Lieutenant Adnan. Finally, the concourse quartet enacts a moment of the battle in the classical style of western ‘history paintings’. These three sets of images are positioned to encourage commuters to actively piece the artwork together through the exploration of the station space, while uncovering a fragment of Singapore’s history.
Pasir Panjang MRT station has just one exit leading to ground level (A).
