Bus Service 124 (SBS Transit Ltd)

Updated 1 January 2017 – Opening of PTWebSG.Wordpress

Bus Service 124 is a trunk route between Saint Michael’s Terminal and Harbourfront Interchange, via Moulmein, Newton, Orchard, Dhoby Ghaut, Clarke Quay, Outram Park and Telok Blangah.

Service 124 Information

Departure Times 0530 – 0000 (+1) 0530 – 0000 (+1)

1901 – 0629 (+1): 10 – 13 mins

 

Fares: Service 124 charges regular Basic Bus Service Distance fares.

Service 124 chiefly serves residents of St. Michael’s Estate and Telok Blangah, connecting them to City areas of Novena, Orchard, Dhoby Ghaut, Clarke Quay and Chinatown. Since most of the route lies within the city, Service 124 also connects commuters travelling within the city.

Service 124 serves bus stops in St. Michael’s Estate twice in different directions; therefore, red and white plates are used to distinguish the direction of travel – red towards Harbourfront and white towards St. Michael’s Terminal.

Additionally, Telok Blangah residents also benefit from this service’s connection to Harbourfront Bus Interchange.
