City Hall MRT Station (NS25/EW13) is an underground Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station on the North South Line and the East West Line, and serves as an interchange station between the two lines.

It is one of the more prominent and busier stations within Singapore's transport system, especially being an interchange station located within the Central Area. The national monument of City Hall is within walking distance from the MRT station. It is also one of the four MRT stations to appear in the "Uniquely Singapore Edition" of the board game Monopoly.

Incidents

Emergency exercise

On 5 June 2008, 280 youths spent the night at City Hall, learning how to deal with an emergency in a train tunnel.

At around midnight, the young campers boarded a train and as the train departed, there was a simulated bomb explosion. They activated the detrainment ramps at both ends of the train, and evacuated to safety via an escape shaft. The students also used the items from their Ready Bags to "survive" the attack.[1]

Train disruptions

This station was part of the series of 2011 MRT train disruptions on 15 and 17 December 2011, caused by a misalignment between the trains' current collector shoes, which collect power from the third rail, and the third rail itself.[2][3][4][5]
