      Hi. Is it true that the purpose of having this Woodlands temporary bus interchange is because the future thomson line station is planned below the station and the paid-link connection is somehow going to cut through the bus interchange?

      Meanwhile, is the other purpose to take this opportunity to replace the old equipment and make the bus interchange more comfortable?

      Yes, Yes, Yes.

      Actually, I do not think there would be much boarding and alighting activities at Changi Business Park Bus Terminal. Who goes there anyway? It's not as if that's a point of transfer from one bus service to another.

      I guess the very purpose of having this bus terminal is only to host new bus services - BSEP new bus services - in the eastern area, as the existing bus interchanges are already full.

      but why still need to build tampines bus interchange number two, and the east coast bus terminal number two? Hmm...

      unfortunately, changi business park bus terminal alone is not enough to support the increase in number of bus services in the eastern region. it is also not wise to have one large facility to contain every new bus service, otherwise there will be traffic congestion problems and unnecessary duplication of resources.

      Jurong East Bus Interchange

      Hi. Does anyone know when will the future Jurong East Bus Interchange be built? It has been four years since operations moved to the temporary facility. The new road (Gateway Drive) is already constructed and open. Soon, the economy will suffer a recession, where many people will become un-employed and things will become more expensive. Will this delay the development of the future Jurong East Bus Interchange?

      Also, I heard that the future Jurong East Bus Interchange may be developed together with the Jurong Region Line. Is it true?

      Anyway, when will it be ready? If I remember correctly, a newspaper article ever said that the temporary facility will be used for ten years, so I supposed in year 2022 the future Jurong East Bus Interchange will be ready. Construction should start latest by 2019... but why need so much time?

      well, there is a likelihood that the Jurong Region Line will have a station interchange with the East-West-Line and North-South-Line at Jurong East. To some extent, the two developments have to accomodate one another. So, it is quite likely that the future Jurong East Bus Interchange will only be ready by 2025, at the same time as the Jurong Region Line.

      as to why it takes so long, it is because have to first clear the land where the original bus interchange was, then plan carefully on how to use the land. then after that have to build the new road, etcetera. all these takes time. and you are right, the economy also influence the progress. it's going to take some time. but it is worth the wait, because next time you get to wait for the bus at Jurong East Bus Interchange in air-conditioned comfort. :)

      Hi mr tampines resident, haha. Who are you to teach me how to reply? I am being courteous when I write like that. This can be defined at most as a character trait. Unlike you. Who is the one who displays characteristics of autism when he chooses to ignore people in this forum again and again and creates lots of usernames and behaves like mr pathlight? Now got tampines resident, tuas resident, Punggol resident, mandai resident, Changi resident, jurongresident, etc. Damn childish. The fact that you like to reply to yourself is the most suitable criteria for autism. Worst is open unnecessary threads then ask moderators to lock them. All are free to judge. Cheers. Thanks.

      It would be better if you acknowledge your flaws and rectify them; 知错能改。

      There is no use arguing. I am only telling you what I feel you may want to work on. Whether or not you want to listen, it is up to you.

      Thanks for the feedback. I will work on it.

    • bus interchange versus bus terminal.

      I do not know if anyone has realised this. The terms "interchange" and "terminal" are quite same-same, but different.

      same-same: both have bus interchange facilities, a bus bay, bus interchange canteen, etcetera.

      different: "terminal" not air-conditoned, and less boarding/alighting activities. "interchange" air-conditioned and more boarding/alighting activities.

      Based on changi business park bus terminal and the upcoming tuas bus terminal, it seems that the term "terminal" only means a facility that has limited or less boarding/alighting activities (than a "interchange") and it is not air-conditioned.

      It seems that this is the new definition of "terminal", unlike in the past when a terminal means a container office, some parking lots and some portable toilets.

      but of course, as now is still the transition phase for all bus interchanges to become air-conditioned, "terminal"s and the old/temporary "interchange"s tend to look alike.

      Hi mr tampines resident, are you crazy or what? Writing hi mr ..., cheers and thanks is a flaw and still want me to acknowledge and rectify? Joker sia! Please tell me how you are going to work on it. Will you stop spamming this forum with all your usernames? If no, please do not act cute thanking people for the feedback and pretending to work on it. Thanks. Cheers.

      For goodness sake, stop going off-topic!!! icon_cry.gif

      I'm trying very hard to keep this thread focused on the topic on bus interchanges, terminals and depots. icon_frown.gif

      If you want, please write something about bus interchange, terminal or depot. icon_wink.gif

      Changi Business Park Bus Terminal opens tomorrow, when bus services 118 and 47 are launched. Woodlands Temporary Bus Interchange is opening soon. Perhaps you may want to write about one of them, or both. icon_smile.gif

      If you do not know what to write, you can reply to any post about bus interchange, terminal or depot. icon_wink.gif

      Thank you. icon_smile.gif

      Hi mr tampinesresident, seriously what are you trying to do? Just don't create unnecessary trouble and this thread will continue by itself. When people want to type anything about bus interchanges, terminals and depots, they will type inside this thread and the messages will continue. There is no need for you to do anything to keep this thread going. 

      When changi business park terminal starts tomorrow on 20/12, this thread will be focussed on the messages. No need for your unintended intervention. Cheers. Thanks.

    • future bus depots

      it seems that every bus depot is located next to an expressway flyover.

      there are twelve depots, we already know six - Bulim, Loyang, Changi, Sungei Seletar, Ulu Pandan and Kim Chuan.

      I guess the next six depots will be located at the following places:

      • - Buangkok East Drive / Kallang-PayaLebar Expressway
      • - Ang Mo Kio Avenue 5 / Central Expressway
      • - Woodlands Avenue 12 / Seletar Expressway
      • - Choa Chu Kang Way / Kranji Expressway
      • - Eng Neo Avenue / Pan-Island Expressway
      • - Portsdown Avenue / Ayer Rajah Expressway

    • All, hooray. On SBS 3504U double decker sbs 117 from punggol to sembawang now. 

      Riveria LRT bus stop: 5.59am wait sbs 3/83/85

      6.03am take sbs 83

      6.11am reach Punggol int

      6.17am sbs 117 arrives at berth B4

      6.47am reach khatib Mrt

      6.59am reach sembawang int. 

      Just to get an estimated feeling of the time to reach destination. 

      Of course not going to be super accurate because today is Sunday and it is the 3rd trip for a new launched service.

      Initial findings:

      48 min from Punggol east (Riveria LRT) to reach khatib mrt. This is slower than sbs 85 which takes 33 min plus 10 min waiting time.

      The longer time for sbs 117 is attributed to the winding around seletar aerospace and the super long yishun ave 1. This is as good as sbs 85 going 1 round in Sengkang east to west. So to all detractors who say sbs 117 is much faster, please think again. Take note there are only 2 passengers on sbs 117 today and the timing is already as such. 

      Exactly 1 hr from Punggol east (Riveria LRT) to reach sembawang int. Sbs 117 takes 42 min from Punggol int to sembawang int. In future, with increase in load, may need add 10 to 15 min.

      Cheers. Thanks.

    • imagine...

      you want to discuss on one bus interchange, then all of a sudden some one else keep bombard the thread with other bus interchanges. in the end, there is never really a discussion about the bus interchange you want to discuss.

      this will happen. in fact, it already has. just look at this page. people were discussing about Jurong East, Woodlands and Changi bus interchanges/terminal, and about interchange vs terminal. but the discussions were interrupted.

      if we go on like this, soon, we will start to realise how come we keep discussing the same thing, and we get irritated with new users asking questions which have already been answered.

      I mean, just look at the other forum. after all, isn't this thread a copy of the thread "Bus Interchanges and ITHs" at the other forum?

      Actually, how can we compare this forum with that other forum? We are (were) much more active in discussing buses than they are. They can make do with that because anyway there is not much discussion about buses. In this forum, with so much discussion about buses everyday, discussions will jam up if we have such a thread (ie. this thread).

       

      please understand that this has an impact on the quality of discussions on SGforums bus forum, and the attractiveness of the forum.
