Route History

Service 193 is a largely industrial route serving Tuas West Drive, Tuas Avenue 5/9 and Jurong West Avenue 4 with connections to Boon Lay MRT/Interchange. Along with Service 192, It also serves part of Jurong West Neighbourhoods 6 and 7 through Jurong West Avenue 4. Like most industrial routes, demand is moderate to low during offpeak hours, but high during peak hours.

Route Amendment due to opening of Joo Koon Bus Interchange

Service 193 Route Amendment Poster

Service 193 Route Amendment Poster

As part of the Joo Koon Bus Interchange opening and accompanying Jurong Industrial Estate route amendments, Phase 2 implementation (28 November 2015) amended Service 193 to replace lost sectors of Service 192 when it was amended at the same time.

Service 192 and 193 had their routings between Boon Lay Interchange and Benoi Road mutually swapped. Service 193 takes over residential sectors (Jurong West St 64 & Jurong West Ave 4) and industrial sectors (Lok Yang Way, Pioneer Rd North) from Service 192. The new route of Service 193 plies Service 192’s old route between Boon Lay Interchange and Benoi Road.

  1. Bus 193 service very poor. Everytime and everyday leave interchange very late. Everytime have to wait 35 to 40 minutes. We get late for work and our pay deducted. Will sbs pay us.? The waiting time at interchange we wait 35 to 40 minutes. In india and malaysia also we dont have to wait 4 bus this long. Tired and fed up for this 193. Yr drivers are enjoying and having all good times and enjoying life at interchange. In front of 193, 181 between that 40 minutes 6 buses leaves interchange. And 193 not even 1 leave in that 40 minutes. Buck up we are tired and frustrated of yr poor 193 service. Waiting time shorter. Every 15 to 20 minutes must hv 1 bus leaving interchange.

  2. We have to wait for 193 at boon lay interchange 30 to 40 minutes
