Concourse of Tiong Bahru MRT Station.

Tiong Bahru MRT Station (EW17) is located on the East West Line on the Singapore MRT. The station is directly connected to a shopping mall, Tiong Bahru Plaza and the station is at Tiong Bahru Road. As the name suggests, the station is located in the northern part of the Tiong Bahru estate. Before the HarbourFront opened, it was the nearest MRT station from Sentosa. The station's upgrading, which included a new lift for the disabled, was completed in 2006.

To commemorate Total Defence Day in 2000, the Singapore Civil Defence Force conducted the first ever Shelter Open House at this station on February 15 and February 16, together with Somerset and Lavender.
