The Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) Rail Bridging Service (or TEL Free Shuttle Bus Service / TEL Free Bridging Bus Service) is an emergency bus service which is provided in the event of a Train Service Disruption involving the Thomson-East Coast Line, which is operated by SMRT Trains.
When a section of the Thomson-East Coast 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 TEL.
When the TEL free bridging bus service is activated along a specific stretch of the NSL, information will be disseminated through SMRT and the Land Transport Authority (LTA)’s media platforms. The service will only stop at specific bus boarding points (either at bus stops or bus interchanges) which are marked out in the ticket concourse of every station.
This service is offered for free, in addition to free bus boarding of regular bus services during a disruption.
