RP Shuttle Bus Services

Republic Polytechnic (RP) students living in the eastern and north-eastern parts of Singapore do not have a direct MRT service to Woodlands. Public buses can get very crowded around Sengkang and Tampines MRT stations during the morning rush hour.

RP offers a one-way shuttle bus service on weekdays for students from Sengkang and Tampines MRT stations to RP. This free shuttle bus service is only available during morning peak periods of the academic term and excludes weekends, public holidays, polytechnic examination periods, study periods and school vacation periods.
