MRT Train Carriage repurposed as a Hotel in one-north

A decommissioned MRT train carriage is set to be up-cycled to be a boutique co-living hotel located at LaunchPad @ one-north. Developed by local startup Tiny Pod, this new hospitality concept will be piloted with the support of JTC.

The train hotel is an extension to their pop-up shipping container hotel at the same place, which was launched in 2020.

Location & Amenities

At LaunchPad @ one-north, the train hotel will be located at the car park next to Block 69 Ayer Rajah Crescent.

A public recreational green space will be developed beside the co-living train hotel. Integrated with food and beverage vending machines and bicycle racks, this new amenity node will also incorporate repurposed train chairs as outdoor public benches.


A total of 8 rooms will be housed in the train cabin, each equipped with an attached bathroom.

Additionally, LCD panels mounted inside the driver’s compartment will depict real-life footage of the train’s earlier journey through the tunnel, creating an immersive experience for guests.

The co-living train hotel’s smart lock system will be provided by local start-up Igloo Home.


Renovation works have commenced in March 2024, with the co-living train hotel anticipated to be operational in September 2024.

    first it was train seats of decommissioned trains in Yishun Northpoint and HDBs near Northpoint, now, there is a train car of a decommissioned train as a tiny hotel in One-north. If Ryan Trahan makes a video about checking out tiny hotels in Asia, then he would go to the train shaped hotel in Singapore to check it out in that video.
