New Shenton Way Ter (25 Jun 2017)

Last edited 3 Jun 2017 – PUBLISHING

From 25 June 2017, the existing Shenton Way Bus Terminal at 60A, Palmer Road, 079428 Singapore, Singapore will be demolished to make way for the construction of CC31 Prince Edward MRT Station.

In place, a new Shenton Way Bus Terminal at 31, Shenton Way, 079121 Singapore, Singapore will be opened on that same day. Unlike the previous terminal, boarding facilities have been incorporated in the new terminal.

Therefore, the twelve existing bus services – 70, 106, 107, 128, 130, 133, 162, 186. 400, 402, 700, and 970 – that terminated at Shenton Way Terminal will be amended to terminate at the new terminal.

Bus stops 03211 before Shenton Way and 03219 after Shenton Way along Palmer Road, previously the first and last bus stops of passenger service respectively before and after the terminal for all services except Bus Service 128, will be removed. Boarding will take place within the terminal, and the last bus stop for alighting will be at 03218 opposite Monetary Authority of Singapore Building, at which all the bus services are already calling.

Service 128 is a supplementary peak hour service, operating parallel to MRT lines for commuters seeking alternative travel during peak hours. It links Bishan and Ang Mo Kio with Orchard, Dhoby Ghaut and Shenton Way, operating city-bound trips during the morning peak hours and return trips in the evening peak hours.

Service 128 is unique in being a trunk service operating only during peak hours and serving the Central Business District. Most other such routes are Express, Fast-Forward or Premium Services. On the eves of selected public holidays, such as Christmas and New Year’s Day, return trips are operated at 1 and 2 p.m.

Despite offering cheaper connections as compared to non-basic services and being direct in nature, as well as a less crowded option besides the MRT network, only two trips are operated due to low ridership.
