Tiong Bahru MRT station (EW17) is an underground Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station on the East West Line in Bukit Merah, Singapore. For trains travelling westwards, this is the last underground station.
On 5 April 1985, construction of Tiong Bahru MRT station and tunnels from Outram Park to Redhill was awarded to Ong Chwee Kou-Boris SAE joint venture under Contract 201.
Tiong Bahru station opened on 12 March 1988, which is part of the Phase 1B of the MRT line. It travels from Outram Park to Clementi.
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.
Before the HarbourFront MRT station opened in 2003 on the North East Line, it was the nearest MRT station to Sentosa. Shuttle bus services linking Sentosa to Tiong Bahru MRT operated for several years until it was eventually withdrawn in 2004.
The station's upgrading which includes a new lift for the disabled, was completed in 29 December 2005.
However, direct bus links between Sentosa and Tiong Bahru MRT was re-established on 30 July 2017, after SBS Transit Service 123 was amended to terminate at Beach Station Bus Terminal in Sentosa, while no longer calling at HarbourFront Bus Interchange, the first full-day public bus service to serve the island.
