Introduced in 2005, Service 58 serves as a residential route connecting Bishan, Lorong Chuan, Serangoon, Kaki Bukit and Pasir Ris. It is the fastest connection between Pasir Ris and Kaki Bukit.
The route encounters high demand during the peak hours from Kaki Bukit and Ubi industrial estates, especially since it is the only route serving Ubi Avenue 3. Hence, the split-shift fleet is actually larger than the AM/PM fleet on weekdays. Offpeak demand is rather weak, and as such, low frequencies are the norm.
Fare: Charges fares for regular trunk services. See Bus Fares for exact fares.
Fleet: Service 58′s fleet consists of a majority of Scania K230UBs as well as Volvo Olympians and Volvo B9TL Wrights. Volvo B9TL Wrights were added under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP).
