THE FUTURE OF CO-LIVING

Train Pod

Singapore’s first-ever co-living train hotel

Tiny Pod expands sustainable hospitality portfolio with innovative train co-living hotel at JTC LaunchPad. The co-living train hotel will incorporate a total of eight rooms, each equipped with an attached bathroom. Additionally, LCD panels mounted inside the driver’s compartment will depict real-life footage of the train’s earlier journey through the tunnel, creating an immersive experience for guests.

The train hotel will be located at the car park next to Block 69 Ayer Rajah Crescent. A public recreational green space will be developed beside the co-living train hotel. Integrated with food and beverage vending machines and bicycle racks, this new amenity node will also incorporate repurposed train chairs as outdoor public benches. Renovation works have commenced in March 2024, with the co-living train hotel anticipated to be operational in September 2024.

Recognising the value of being in an ecosystem of like-minded startups within LaunchPad @ one-north, Tiny Pod has leveraged this opportunity to partner with local start-up Igloo Home for the hotel’s smart lock system to enhance the co-living train.

Tiny Pod’s co-living train hotel project is an extension to their pop-up shipping container hotel at LaunchPad @ one-north, which was launched in 2020. Since then, Tiny Pod’s shipping containers have expanded to urban and public spaces at Gardens by the Bay and Haw Par Villa.

"In today's market, where consumers prioritise eco-conscious choices, pop-up hotels are swiftly emerging as a lucrative niche. Our endeavour taps into this trend and exemplifies a fusion of profitability and sustainability. By transforming underutilised spaces into unique accommodation experiences, we unlock new revenue streams and minimise our environmental footprint. This endeavour aligns seamlessly with evolving consumer preferences, where conscientious travellers seek authentic and eco-friendly alternatives. With the support of our partners JTC, LTA and MTI, and the growing momentum of eco-conscious tourism, this project demonstrates our commitment to catalyse positive change within the industry while delivering memorable experiences for our guests," said Tiny Pod Pte Ltd Founder & CEO Mr. Seah Liang Chiang.
