Toa Payoh MRT Station (NS19) is an underground station of the Mass Rapid Transit's North South Line in Singapore. It serves the Toa Payoh area. The station plays a role in the "Uniquely Singapore Edition" of the board game Monopoly.
Toa Payoh was the first MRT station in Singapore to be completed, topping out on 5 August 1985. The station was the first underground station in the world to be fitted with platform screen doors. This station was among the first phase of MRT stations, from Toa Payoh to Yio Chu Kang, to be opened in Singapore in 1987. Today, the concourse area bears the inauguration plate of Singapore's MRT system.
This station was one of four MRT stations which participated in Exercise Northstar V, a mock terrorist exercise held on 8 January 2006.
Falling tiles were a problem in Toa Payoh and Novena stations, and the trademark bright yellow tiles of the station's walls were replaced with a layer of plastic and paint of the same colour. This station has been largely refurbished in 2008.
