Singapore LRT Breakdown Guide

This page is under construction


This section was created to assist commuters in finding alternative routes by bus in the event of a LRT Service Disruption. During such an event, rail bridging bus services may be activated, but these services take time to deploy and will not be able to cope with large numbers of affected passengers. It is thus advantageous if commuters have concise directions to their destinatons via existing bus services that serve the affected MRT station during a service disruption.

Train disruptions can range from additional travel time to a full breakdown of the train line. Given the type of diisruption and distance to destination, commuters should use our guide only as a reference, subject to the situation on the ground.

During a disruption

At the onset of a disruption, free bus boarding will be activated at bus stops near train stations. Commuters would be better off finding alternative routes than waiting for rail bridging bus services to appear. As such, they are advised to rely on existing bus routes to leave the area rather than joining the growing crowd. Bus services are expected to be packed, and commuters unable to board buses may consider other forms of transport such as taxi, or walking, since LRT stations are generally in close proximity to each other.
