Route History

Service 99 is a lengthy residential trunk route, serving between the housing estates of Clementi, Jurong East, Jurong West and Pioneer North. Its primary role is shuttling commuters between different parts of the large Jurong West residential district rather than connecting commuters to nearby MRT stations. A majority double-deck bus fleet caters to all-day demand from residents.

This route connects to Jurong East MRT along Boon Lay Way, but few use the transfer option due to the long walk from the bus stop to the station and bus interchange. This route runs parallel to the East-West Line from Jurong East to Clementi Interchange.

2015 Route Extension to Joo Koon

Route Extension Poster

As part of the Joo Koon Bus Interchange opening and accompanying Jurong Industrial Estate route amendments, Phase 1 implementation (21 November 2015) extended Service 99 to Joo Koon Bus Interchange via Jurong West St 93 and Upp Jurong Rd, enhancing connectivity for Jurong West Residents to Joo Koon MRT Station and Fairprice Hub.

The route extension makes Service 99 among the first two services to terminate at the new Joo Koon Bus Interchange, the other being Service 258.

  1. Hi to whom it may concern, I would like to feedback that the recent bus frequency of 99 at Blk 934 to clement Is taking too long to arrive after 1 bus left. Though we can track from app that it’s 7-8min but in fact, many waited for more than 15min from 730am to 750am and there is no next bus. This hence delayed our traveling time and bring to the inconvenience of those who work early. We do like to suggest if you can get more buses to come fast given that there is only 1 bus no. At that bus stop.

    • Hi Gg, do forward your feedback to SBS Transit.

      For your convenience, the following timings reflect Service 99 scheduled timetable arrival time at Blk 934 towards Clementi.
      07:22 07:28 07:35 07:41 07:48 07:54

      • Hi team, thanks for the reply. However the timing between 7.35am-7.48am got no bus arriving at all for the past 2 days. That is the time where many people are on their way to work and if no bus, this will eventually delay the time they reach workplace. Does this mean that the driver which are scheduled are at fault? Or we can only wait but do nothing? Due to the urgency, I have to end up cabbing after 750am still no buses came when I actually waited at the bus stop by 730am just like what I did normally. I’m not sure if there are any changes towards the bus arrival timing for Blk 934 jurong west st 91, but I do hope that there will be someone who can help to assist on this issue. Thank you very much
