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

      Even if cross-border services were to terminate at Tuas bus terminal, I think the authorities should allow boarding/alighting for cross-border services to take place at the bus stops for Tuas Link MRT (like at Kranji MRT)?

    • All, Go Ahead Singapore announced the grand opening of the extended portion of Punggol bus interchange on 1 oct 2017. The berth B1 to B5 will be reorganized with buses being switched as such. 

      B1: 3, 50, 136

      B2: 83, 85, 382G, 382W

      B3: 34, 62, 82, 386

      B4: 119, 118, 381

      B5: 43/43M, 84, 117.

      Some obeservations are made. Good that they decide to put 3/83/85 close to each other just like now. This benefits Punggol central (last 2 stops)/ Punggol east residents just like current status. Good that they move the super long queue 118 to berth 4 to thin out the crowds near the current entrance to mrt and near office and canteen area. Good that they also move the long queue 34 to the other side of the exit at berth 3. Cheers. Thanks.

      But the tuas link bus stop seem pretty small to fit large crowds that is usually expected of such cross borders services...

      IMO 119 and 382G should have been together... But since 381 is with 119 it's still ok.

    • Kampong Bahru Terminal look 70% completed with 4 sawtooth boarding berths and most probably 2 alighting berths.

      Let us see,Svc 2,12,54,120,121,122,174,174e,190,CT8 & CT18.

      Got space for 1-2 service.Maybe a new svc or 61 to cut short there?

      I got a feeling that the terminal might be 'ulu' like CBP terminal as I doubt many residents living around the area would want to walk even further to the terminal itself when they can just board at the bus stops at Kampong Bahru Rd. If you ask me, the terminal could have been built further down at the forested area beside MacAlister Rd so at least it would have been more convenient for Jalan Bukit Merah and Tiong Bahru residents as compared to the current location. The terminal could have been named, 'Tiong Bahru Bus Terminal' in case 'Jalan Bukit Merah ' terminal sounds too similar to the current BM int.

      Also good la,later crowded sia...The name itself is Terminal

    • Bukit Merah should move somewhere near MRT

      Tampines Concourse and Compassvale should renamed to Terminal due to its size.

      Buona Vista ought to have a new Interchange

      Even the new NBR / Kampong Bahru Terminal will be far from any MRT station.
