tations

ervice

Trains on the Sengkang LRT ply either one of the two loops, the East loop or the West loop. Trains serving the East loop are bi-directional, meaning that passengers can travel either way to get to their destination station on the East Loop. However for the West Loop, trains only ply in one direction. From start of service till 3 p.m., trains will ply the West Loop via Cheng Lim first, to cater to residents who need to transfer to Sengkang MRT Station to get to work. After 3 p.m., trains will go in reverse direction, via Renjong first, so that residents can get back to home faster.
