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.

Transfer of operator (Seletar Bus Package 2018)

Last edited 27 May 2017 – PUBLISHING

From 1Q 2018, SBS Transit Ltd, the winning tenderer of the Seletar Bus Package under the Bus Contracting Model, will take over operations of the 13 bus services previously not operated by the company.

Bus Services 800, 803, 804, 805, 806, 811, 812, 850E, 851, 852, and 860 will be handed over to SBS Transit Ltd from SMRT Buses Pte Ltd.

There will be no change in route and first and last bus timings to all 26 bus services under the package; however, frequencies of about 12 of them will improve to no more than 15 minutes for all directions during peak periods, with at least half of them having scheduled headways of no more than 10 minutes. Of these, the feeder services will run at intervals of 6-8 minutes. These are as per BCM guidelines.

We will progressively update the individual pages of the affected bus services to reflect the correct frequencies.
