History:

  • 1980: Clementi Int opens
  • 2006: Moved to temporary interchange
  • 2011: Moved to new Clementi Interchange ITH

The old Clementi Bus Interchange was first opened on 16th Nov 1980. Prior to the construction of Jurong East Bus Interchange in 1985, this interchange handled many routes heading to Jurong East and was frequently overcrowded and operating over-capacity. Things would improve later on with the addition of more trunk and feeder bus routes, such as the introduction of feeder service 287 to serve West Coast.

On October 29 2006, bus operations moved to a temporary bus interchange built across the road, at 3161 Commonwealth Ave West. It would take another five years for the existing site to be redeveloped.

Finally, on 26 November 2011, the new Clementi Bus Interchange opens as an Integrated Transport Hub. The interchange is an integrated development consisting of Clementi Mall and two blocks of HDB flats collectively called Clementi Towers (Blk 441A and 441B). It is the sixth air-conditioned bus interchange to be built, and the second along the East West Line after Boon Lay.

Feeder bus services:

Clementi Interchange started off with three feeder services, Service 282 (Clementi Avenue 5), Service 284 (Clementi Avenue 4) and Service 285 (Pandan loop). Service 287 was later introduced to Clementi West Street 2, but was withdrawn in 1988 and integrated with Service 282.

Service 284M was introduced in 2009 as an extension of Service 284 which operated during off-peak hours. It brought direct bus connections from Clementi Avenue 4 to Clementi Polyclinic and Clementi MRT before returning to Clementi Temp Int, and was withdrawn with the opening of the new Clementi Interchange.
