Network

In Singapore, 47.9% of public transport journeys are made using the MRT or LRT, and the percentage is set to increase further as new train lines and extensions are being opened, improving rail connectivity across the island.

Brand new MRT lines – the 4th & 5th stages of the Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL), the Jurong Region Line (JRL) and the Cross Island Line (CRL) – will begin serving commuters in the coming 10 years.

Several MRT & LRT stations will open in the future – the Brickland and Sungei Kadut stations on the North-South Line (NSL), Hume station on the Downtown Line (DTL), Founders' Memorial, Mount Pleasant and Marina South stations on the TEL, and Teck Lee station on the Punggol LRT.

Commuters can look forward to better rail connectivity around Singapore with the upcoming 6th stage of the Circle Line (CCL6), the North East Line extension (NELe) and the Downtown Line 3 extension (DTLe).
