Concourse of Tiong Bahru MRT Station.

Tiong Bahru MRT Station is an underground station located on the East West Line on the Singapore MRT. It is the last underground MRT station on the line westwards. The station is directly connected to a shopping mall, Tiong Bahru Plaza and is at Tiong Bahru Road and Jalan Membina. As the name suggests, the station is located in the northern part of Tiong Bahru estate which is under the Bukit Merah Urban Planning Area. The MRT Station serves the surrounding residential areas of Bukit Ho Swee, Bukit Merah View and Tiong Bahru. Before the HarbourFront MRT station opened, it was the nearest MRT station to 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.
