Located within the town centre of Toa Payoh near the junction of Lorong 1 Toa Payoh, Lorong 2 Toa Payoh and Lorong 6 Toa Payoh, this station is connected to Toa Payoh Bus Interchange and the HDB Hub.
Opened on 7 November 1987 as the former southern terminus of the North South line, it is the oldest station on the Singapore MRT. It is one of two stations serving the Toa Payoh housing estate (the other being Braddell) and is a transport node for residents of Toa Payoh New Town.
The station was featured in the "Uniquely Singapore Edition" of the board game Monopoly.
Toa Payoh MRT station was awarded to Tobishima-Takenaka Joint Venture under Contract 104 on September 1983, together with Novena station and tunnels to Newton.
Toa Payoh was the first MRT station in Singapore to be completed, topping out on 5 August 1985.
The station was the first underground station in the world to be fitted with platform screen doors. This station was among the first phase of MRT stations, from Toa Payoh to Yio Chu Kang, to be opened in Singapore on 7 November 1987. Today, the concourse area bears the inauguration plate of Singapore's MRT system.
This station was one of four MRT stations which participated in Exercise Northstar V, a mock terrorist exercise held on 8 January 2006, and refurbished by June that year.
