      Upload pic to an external site first (facebook, flickr etc), then copy/paste the image url into the insert image popup window.

      But anyway, there are pics here: https://publictransportsg.wordpress.com/2015/09/28/changi-business-park-bus-terminal/

      12 end-on berths, orange/beige paintwork. Boarding/alighting should be allowed at the bus ter, although there's not much nearby except SUTD.

    • Will there be a dual control for Svc 99? However, with the introduction of Svc 253, 256 & 258... Will there be space for Svc 99 to be dual control?

      Even if it is dual depot... BBDEP will be majority and SLBP may take only 4 buses,. 80% still with BBDEP.

      SLBP will have to take in many buses because in spite of some routes getting cut to Joo Koon, overall with more route introduction, there is some route overlap.

      there are 50 spare buses in SLBP (including 7 BSEP Wrights and 6 BSEP citaros)... no problem is taking in some duties.. further, they can do overnight parking at Joo Koon ITH...

    • Apparently, Tuas Bus Terminal used to be filled with bus services that go to places in Malaysia (eg. Gelang Patah), but somehow, it now has only two bus services. I think this is due to the lack of public transport connection to Tuas Bus Terminal.

      When the Tuas West MRT Extension opens next year, there will be stronger public transport connection to Tuas Bus Terminal.

      Tuas Link MRT Station may complement Tuas Bus Terminal well. Tuas Bus Terminal can be used to park buses and coaches for cross-boarder bus services, Tuas Link MRT Station can have ticket kiosks selling bus tickets, while the bus stops next to Tuas Link MRT Station can be boarding and alighting points for cross-boarder bus services.

      Anyway, no, I do not think the new Tuas Bus Terminal allows boarding and alighting activities.

      unlike the current bus terminal at Tuas West, the new bus terminal does not allow boarding and alighting.

    • Bus Service 990.

      Actually, if 258 can loop inside Boon Lay Bus Interchange, why 990 cannot loop inside Jurong East Bus Interchange?

      My friend... you are the only one on the forum who still encourages him... we all know he is a lunatic and everything he says is fake... just ignore him because when you call him fake, he loves it and will send you another 10 messages, spoiling this forum further.. please take my advise on this and stop replying to him.

      It actually can... but I guess they want to reduce run time... Jurong interchange is so crowded... and the berths are always occupied and bus has to wait for bus in fron to go... all this will increase the bus time by around 10 mins... so better off going from outside.

    • Tuas Bus Terminal (new one opening in 2016 or 2017).

      From "Portfolio - Tuas West Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) Extension Depot",

      The proposed Tuas West Mass Rapid Transit Extension Depot is located at Tuas West Road and it is JURONG Primewide's first project with LTA. Forming part of the tender requirements of Contract 1685 is the Design and Build of a new bus terminal to be located on a section of the proposed Rapid Transit System (RTS) depot building roof slab.

      The area designated for the proposed bus terminal is approximately 10,000 sq metres which shall be accessible, primarily, via a ramp structure connecting directly to Tuas West Drive. Alternatively, the site can also be accessible via another ramp structure connecting to Tuas Link 4.

      The proposed bus terminal consists of 2 major elements. One is the bus terminal building and the other is the bus parking area. For security reasons, the bus terminal, including its driveways and bus parking area is intended to be fully lockable and secured against illegal entry after operation hours and is intended to be maintained as restricted and controlled area with no access by unauthorized personnel.

      The bus terminal have a naturally ventilated Concourse Area with facilities such as 2 numbers of Passenger Service Offices, 2 separate Offices for Main and Secondary Operators, Administrative Office, Staff Lounge, Canteen, Servery, Rodent Free Store Room, Technician’s Room, Store Room, Cleaner’s Room, Switch Room, Toilet Facilities, Bin Centre, Staff Briefing Room and First Aid Room. A 10-passenger lift connecting the ground level and the bus terminal level is also provided.

      Well, the last paragraph says that there will be Passenger Service Offices and Passenger lift. I guess this means that passengers can use the concourse area of the bus terminal, otherwise why would the facilities' names contain the word "Passenger"?

      From the looks of it, it seems that the new Tuas Bus Terminal will be like the new Bedok Bus Interchange, where the concourse is elevated. Besides passenger lifts, they should also have escalators and ramps, to enable easy access to the concourse of the new Tuas Bus Terminal.

      Anyway, I do not think there will be great changes when the Tuas West MRT Extension opens. It's probably just some minor amendments to 193, and one last shortening of 182 to Tuas Bus Terminal when the new MRT stations open.

      Press Release of Cirlce Line Stage 6

      Expansion of Circle Line’s Kim Chuan Depot

       

      7. To cater to future needs, Kim Chuan Depot will be expanded to almost double its capacity from 70 to 133 trains. The integrated depot will also house 550 buses, which will allow us to optimise land use.  The expansion of the depot will be completed at about the same time as CCL6 in 2025.

      There will be a bus depot located in the vicinity of Kim Chuan Depot...

    • Shenton Way Bus Terminal.

       

      According to an article ("Old Singapore Poly home may be conserved") published by The Straits Times on 29 August 2015,

      "" The Land Transport Authority (LTA) will be working in the area from the first quarter of next year to relocate the existing Shenton Way Bus Terminal along Keppel Road to a plot of land near the Bestway Building.

      The new bus terminal will be ready in 2017, and have additional facilities such as a canteen and passenger service centre.

      An LTA spokesman said a single- storey structure within the Bestway compound will be demolished "to facilitate the relocation". But the building will not be affected by the relocation of the bus terminal. ""
