      I would prefer 265. 45 and 268 should stay as they are as they provide connection between the industrial estate and AMK town.

      265 and 268 under Seletar contract while 45 under Bedok. AMDEP is managed by Bishan contract. Having 265 and 268 start from AMDEP is an anomaly.

    • Regarding Kim Chuan Bus Depot,

      The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has awarded the first three civil contracts for Circle Line 6 (CCL6) totalling S$1.75 billion. Works on these three contracts are expected to commence by the end of 2017 and complete by 2025.

      Woh Hup (Private) Limited has been appointed to extend the Kim Chuan Depot. The expansion will cater to future needs and this includes almost doubling the depot’s housing capacity from 70 to 133 trains. The integrated depot will also house 550 buses, which will allow better land optimisation.

    • The Sentosa Beach Station Bus Terminal has 14 parking lots, 2 of which are allocated to bus service 123.

      There are about four private bus routes using the facility (bus A, bus B, hotel, reserved), and each bus route is allocated 2 parking lots.

      In all, 10 parking lots are used.

      There remains 2 parking lots unused.

      We can have another bus service to Sentosa, if there is a demand.

    • New Tuas bus terminal to open on Oct 7

      SINGAPORE: The new Tuas bus terminal will open on Oct 7 along Tuas West Drive, the Land Transport Authority said in a news release on Friday (Sep 15).

      The terminal will be integrated above the current Tuas MRT depot and will have access ramps for buses leading to Tuas West Drive and Tuas Link 4.

      The four bus services operating from the existing Tuas bus terminal - services 192, 193, 247 and 248 - will operate from the new terminal, and will also no longer call at the bus stop along Tuas West Drive once the new terminal is open.

      The existing Tuas bus terminal will stop operating on Oct 7.

      To better accommodate the elderly and those who are less mobile, the terminal will have a priority queue zone and barrier-free toilets, LTA said. There will also be "enhanced facilities" for bus captains and staff members such as a staff lounge and dedicated staff toilets.

      It will also have two alighting areas and a boarding area.

      iirc its within walkable distance, abt 10 to 15 min walk

    • Lets hope a new cross border svc to operate soon, hopefully CW3/4/6 will be moved to there to ease the congestion at JE and can let pax wait in a nicer environment. Let's look out for LTA/Causeway link announcements bah!

    • Hang on. "The new Tuas Bus Terminal is equipped with two alighting berths, and one bus-stop style boarding berth to accommodate boarding and alighting activities."

      Liddat the ter seems quite small sia. Dun think and cross-border can fit sia, esp human traffic
