Hi, just to check are there any shuttle buses from Tampines Mall to Citibank (Changi Business Park). Thanks

Thanks again all. I like the look of Casa Merah, it's near the MRT and only one stop from Expo, so looks pretty convenient to get to CBP.

I guess this may cost a little more but hopefully still within the $3.5K budget for a 3 bedroom apartment?

You'll be very lucky to get a 3 bedder for less than $4k at Casa Merah.

I am pretty sure Citibank has shuttle service to to Tampines mall, if you working there that is.

If you have the budget for 3.5k for housing, why would you want to stay near MRT. I would just choose a nice place in Simei and then use Taxi. Wouldn't cost you more than the minimum fare. Why stay at a dull and boring place like Tanah Merah? There is no mall around, There is one fair price but slightly far and also there is one food court. Simei is much better place to live with the East Point mall and the overall atmosphere is much lively.

The lack of car really makes people look at Singapore in terms of MRT stops Lol!

Thanks for the feedback, it's appreciated! I guess we won't get a 'feel' of where is a good place to live until we check out the different areas, but it's good to get feedback from locals!

Not sure if commuting to work via taxi is very practical on a daily basis? But I'm assuming there's good bus links between Simei and CBP?

A shocking comment, and a very Singaporean thing to say… Who says Malls are good??? Horrible places…

I live in Eastwood, just 500 metres down from Tannah Merah, we have Bedok Camp Food Centre, Cold Storage, Shop and Save, local shops who remember your name and what you order when you go in the Eastwood Centre, barbers, hairdressers, nail bars yadda yadda, very good Chinese Restaurant opposite the Hawker, Siglap down the road, 15 minute walk to the beach for the dog, 5 minute taxi to ECP hawker, tow lake, restaurant, and bar areas… Bus depot 50 metres round the corner to get you anywhere on the Island…

Parkway Parade is just 5 mins away in a taxi if you “must”

Simei to CBP costs 3$ at non peak hours. And taxis are abundant. And most people who dont own cars in my office and are well-off enough to live in condos use the taxi.

Again, bus links or MRT link b/w Simei and CBP are terrible. You could walk and still get here faster, lol!
