Bayfront MRT Station (CE1/DT16) is an underground Mass Rapid Transit station located in the Marina Bay area. The station connects the Circle Line and Downtown Line via a cross platform interchange. Due to the two lines being run by different operators, it's the only jointly managed station in Singapore.[1] Serving mainly the Marina Bay Sands hotel and casino, an underground walkway also provides visitors with convenient passage to Gardens by the Bay.

Art in Transit[edit]

Titled as "When the Ships Comes In" by Lee Wen is a mural, composed of a collage, located on the underground linkway of the station. The collage of images of ships, drawn by young Singaporeans, brings a remembrance of the past of Port of Singapore and Singapore's future hopes.[2]
