Both routes duplicate their parent Service 859 and were introduced in their present form under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP). They were launched on Sunday, 17 August 2014.

Notes* Departure times are staggered with Service 859.

History:

  • 2014 (17 Aug): Service 859A amended to its present form and Service 859B introduced under the BSEP. Both routes are wheelchair-accessible at introduction.

Supplementary services 859A and 859B duplicate the routing of their parent Service 859, serving within the Sembawang housing estate. Both routes serve in opposite directions, with Service 859A taking the counter-clockwise loop and Service 859B taking the clockwise loop. The initiative to convert Service 859A to a full-day bus route, combined with the introduction of Service 859B, was part of the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP) which aims to increase bus capacity and current bus service levels.

Service 859A was previously a shortworking trip service terminating at Opp Blk 315, Sembawang Vista (outside Sembawang Interchange), operating from 12:00am to 12:50am after the last bus of Service 859 towards Yishun has departed. The new Service 859A is a supplementary bus service (having been converted to full-day operations), and will be be extended to terminate within Sembawang Bus Interchange.

Service 859B is the new supplementary bus service identical in routing to Service 859A, but running in the opposite direction, supplementing Service 859 in the direction of Sembawang Int. The route will call at all existing bus stops similar to Service 859.

The A and B suffixes used do not represent these routes as shortworking trips, but as route variants of Service 859. Such route numbering is similar to the Green and White plates (G/W suffix) used on SBS Transit feeder routes to indicate different directions of travel.

LTA/SMRT Joint News Release

Both routes will be launched on Sunday, 17 August 2014, to improve bus connectivity within the Sembawang estate and aid with high passenger loading on Service 859. The routes will connect to public amenities such as Canberra Community Club, Sembawang Library, Sembawang Mart, Sembawang MRT Station, Sembawang Secondary School and Sun Plaza.

Route Variants:

  • Service 859Sembawang Bus Interchange ↔ Yishun Bus Interchange

Fare: Charges basic fares. Refer to Fare Table.

Supplementary Service 131M serves residential estates and schools around Bukit Purmei and Lower Delta Road with connections to Jalan Bukit Merah Bukit Merah Town Centre. It duplicates its parent Service 131 along its entire route, and enhances connectivity for Bukit Purmei residents.

Introduced as a replacement for Service 275, the route duplicates Service 275 entirely. Ever since Service 131 was amended to ply Bukit Purmei Avenue in both directions in 2005, both Service 131 and 275 have been duplicating each other, and as such, Service 275 was made to operate at low frequencies (until its BSEP addition in 2013). To better utilize resources, Service 275 was withdrawn entirely, and Service 131M introduced to take its place, operating only during the peak hours where additional resources are better utilized.

History:

  • 2014 (18 May): Introduced between Jurong East Int and Pandan Gardens under the BSEP.
  • 2014 (24 Aug): Calls at Blk 411, West Coast Road

Service 143M provides residents of Teban Gardens and Pandan Gardens with greater connectivity to Jurong East MRT and Interchange, along with other amenities in the neighborhood. The route serves Teban Gardens Market and Food Centre, Commonwealth Secondary School and Jurong Regional Library, along with JCube, Jem and Westgate malls near Jurong East Interchange. This bus service is introduced under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP), as well as the first M-suffixed service under the BSEP.

The service duplicates Service 143, relieving demand and improving reliability of bus services for commuters. By looping at Pandan Gardens, it strengthens bus connections there in addition to existing Services 51 and 143. With Service 143 being frequently affected by inconsistent arrivals, 143M would be a welcomed relief for regular commuters between Pandan Gardens and Jurong East.

It is worth noting that 143M’s catchment is similar to the old Feeder 331 which looped at Teban Gardens and was withdrawn due to duplication with Services 51, 79 and 143. The late operating hours of this service will result in withdrawal of Shortworking Trip 143A.

This service is wheelchair-accessible as of introduction.

LTA-SBST Joint News Release

LTA-SBST Joint News Release

History:

Service 121 provides residents of Telok Blangah, Kim Tian and Havelock with greater connectivity to Tiong Bahru and Outram Park MRT Stations, along with other amenities in the vicinity. It is the twenty-fifth (25th) bus service to be introduced under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP), and the second new BSEP service originating from New Bridge Road after Service 120.

The inter-town service improves on existing bus connections between the estates at Telok Blangah Way / Crescent / Rise, Kim Tian and Ganges Avenue, and providing the much-needed bus connection between the estates and Tiong Bahru MRT Station. The service also calls at a new pair of bus stops along Kim Tian Road, which had no bus services plying the stretch in recent times.

For the Telok Blangah Estates, Service 121 closely duplicates the existing Feeder Service 272, which did not connect to any MRT station. Residents will enjoy better connectivity to Tiong Bahru MRT with the new service, which is also expected to relieve demand on Service 195.

SBS Transit’s press release sums up the new service:

“SBS Transit Bus Service 121 is a new trunk service that will operate from Sunday, 16 March 2014. Service 121 will directly connect commuters from Ganges Avenue, Kim Tian Road and Telok Blangah Crescent/Rise to Tiong Bahru and Outram Park MRT stations.

Operating daily from 6.00am to 11.30pm from New Bridge Road Bus Terminal, SBS Transit Bus Service 121 will ply Outram Road, Zion Road, Ganges Avenue, Lower Delta Road, Tiong Bahru Road, Kim Tian Road, Jalan Bukit Merah, Lower Delta Road and Telok Blangah Way, before looping back via Telok Blangah Crescent and Telok Blangah Rise. As Zion Road is one-way, the service will ply Outram Road in the return direction.

Besides enhancing connectivity to key transport nodes such as Tiong Bahru and Outram Park MRT stations, the new bus service will also provide residents with convenient access to amenities like Singapore General Hospital, Outram Polyclinic, SAFRA Mount Faber, Tiong Bahru Plaza, markets and food centres along Jalan Bukit Merah and Telok Blangah Crescent, as well as schools such as Radin Mas Primary School and CHIJ St. Theresa’s Convent.

SBS Transit Bus Service 121 is the 25th new bus service to be rolled out under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP).”
