    Get to Queensway from Tiong Bahru, then take 93 (SBS) or 855 (SMRT)..

    wait, actually tjis one faster

    Take Service Number 851 :
    Travel Time 19 mins.
    Board bus at Tiong Bahru Rd, Tiong Bahru Plaza ( Usually Opposite Your Requested Boarding Stop )
    Alight at Bt Timah Rd, Little India Stn
    EzLinkCard $0.89
    Cash $1.10
    Transfer to Service Number 980 :
    Travel Time 13 mins.
    Board bus at Bt Timah Rd, Little India Stn
    EzLinkCard $0.89
    Cash $1.10


    Total 32 min only. Just use the SMRT bus guide link I posted above and find your fastest route. You only mention Tiong Bahru so I estimate near Tiong Bahru plaza only. if you key in your nearest alighting location den the route may be different.

    Another way is to take MRT from Tiong Bahru station to Toa Payoh station, and take bus 157.

    Your school should be put to task for not letting students know how to get there!

    My IQ is below average but with that i know in SIngapore no problem getting anywhere around the island. call friends in a group. share cab to and fro if you want to be fast, don't want to overspend and know not sure the way there.

    As a student, you can wake up 2 hrs early before the race... take a morning puu-puu follow by a fresh bath then u follow the sifu suggestion above, i'm sure you can reach there on time comfortably. no big deal right ?

    well,you can always have a head start and start your cross country from your home and jog there lucky for me,i stay at hougang and it's quite convenient for me to get there. your school should really think of somewhere nearer as i had my cross country at punggol park once before also due to the renovation works at mac richie.where is your school by the way?
