The service operates daily from 5.50am to 11.05pm, serving residential areas around Punggol Way, Sengkang East Road, Sengkang Central, Buangkok Green, Yio Chu Kang Road and Serangoon Central. It will provide better access to key transport nodes such as Punggol and Serangoon Bus Interchanges, Punggol, Buangkok and Serangoon MRT Stations, amenities such as Ren Ci Hospital & Medicare Centre, Serangoon Sports & Recreation Centre and NEX as well as schools such as Hougang Secondary and Hougang Primary.

LTA/SBST Joint News Release

LTA/SBST Joint News Release

Shortworking trip 43A will likely be withdrawn after the introduction of 43M due to duplicating sectors, but remains to be confirmed at a later date.

While Service 43M serves Boundary Road, it skips the bus stop outside Serangoon Stadium (63149 S’goon Stadium) as its parent Service 43 does not serve that stretch of road. All bus stops along Service 43M’s route are also served by Service 43.

Route variants:

  • Service 43: Punggol Bus Interchange ↔ Upper East Coast Bus Terminal

Fare: See Fare Table.

Fleet: Service 43M’s fleet comprises of BSEP Volvo B9TL Wrights and Mercedes-Benz Citaros. These buses were registered with the 33XX and 63XX registration plates onwards and their purchase funded by the BSEP scheme.

Route History

Service 17A is a shortworking trip of Service 17, helping to ease high demand for its parent service between Bedok Interchange and Bedok North Avenue 4. It originally operated only during weekday AM and PM Peak hours, adding extra capacity to Service 17’s residential sectors within the Bedok estate.

From 16 November 2014, Service 17A was converted into a full-day service under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP), with additional BSEP buses supplemented but no change in route. This is the third time that an extension of service hours has been classified under the BSEP, after Service 63M and 859A.

LTA/SBST Joint News Release

LTA/SBST Joint News Release

The extension of operating hours will improve connectivity for residents in the Bedok North area to Bedok Bus Interchange and Bedok MRT Station. Access to amenities such as Bedok Polyclinic and Kampong Chai Chee CC, and schools such as Fengshan Primary, St. Anthony Canossian Primary and St. Anthony’s Canossian Secondary will also be improved.

As a route variant of Service 17, this service is wheelchair-accessible as of introduction. However, SBS Transit will be officially declaring the BSEP enhanced Service 17A to be wheelchair accessible from 03 December 2014. Hence this service is not wheelchair accessible from 16 November till 03 December 2014. As an interesting fact, the route is also a duplication of Feeder service 227 (Bedok Int – Bedok North Depot (Loop)), which was withdrawn in 2002.

Route variants:

  • Service 17: Pasir Ris Interchange ↺ Bedok Bus Interchange (Loop)

Fare: See Fare Table.

Fleet: Service 17A operates on a fleet of Mercedes-Benz Citaros under the BSEP scheme.

On the ground:

SBST & SMRT Route Diversion Diagrams put up on the later days of the diversion

Beach Road services are diverted to turn into Middle Road

Middle Road services (from Nicoll Highway and Beach Rd) make a left turn to North Bridge Rd

Diverted services originally from Raffles Ave and Nicoll Highway make a right turn from North Bridge Rd into Stamford Rd

The remainder of diverted services along North Bridge Rd head straight towards South Bridge Rd and Cross St

Cecil St services diverted to make a left turn into Cross St. Express 868 is incorrectly represented here.

Robinson Rd services diverted to make a left turn into Cross St. Express 868 is not included.

Diverted services from Church St make a right turn to rejoin original routing along Raffles Quay / Shenton Way, except for Services 133 and 502 which head into Marina Blvd

Pan Pacific Hotel bus stop closed throughout the duration of the F1 race. Road is open to taxis and carpark access.

————————————————————————————————————————————

Travelling Tips during the F1 period:

  • Rely on the rail network. Familiarize oneself with walking routes in and out of the Marina Bay area.
  • Plan for additional travel time. Road congestion is expected around the circuit park and next bus arrival timings will not be available.
  • Know alternative routes to your destination.
  • Approach bus drivers or interchange offices for more information on road and bus stop closures.
  • Inform bus drivers out of goodwill if one decides to alight at bus stops along the diversion route.

History:

  • 2014 (25 Aug): Introduced from Bukit Merah Interchange to Bukit Purmei Avenue, operating during weekday peak hours only

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.
