More details about the bus interchange at our new site, Land Transport Guru. Click here to continue.
Punggol Temporary Bus Interchange is a temporary bus interchange at Punggol Central, located adjacent to the Punggol MRT/LRT Station. It was built to cater for the residential developments of Punggol New Town, and allows for easy dismantling when the site is redeveloped in the future, hence retaining its ‘temporary’ status.

Prior to Punggol Temporary Bus Interchange, the only other bus terminal was the Punggol Road End Bus Terminus, which existed since the 1980s, and home to bus services like 82 and 83. By the time it was shut down in 2003, only Service 82 remained, and the terminal was converted to a bus stop.
Punggol Bus Interchange opened on Sunday, 30 November 2003 with four bus routes. Service 83 from Sengkang was amended to terminate here rather than looping around Punggol. Service 3 between Tampines and Pasir Ris was extended to Punggol and converted to a bidirectional route. Service 62 and 136 were extended from the former Hougang South Bus Interchange to the new Punggol Interchange.
Subsequently, more services like 34, 43 and 85 were introduced to bring about greater connectivity to Punggol. When Serangoon Bus Interchange moved to its new facility, Service 82 was amended to start from Punggol Int and loop at Serangoon Central, skipping Punggol Road End. A new service 84 was introduced to cover the lost sector.
On 21 October 2012, under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP), Service 119 was extended from Sengkang to terminate at Punggol Bus Interchange, calling at an additional four pairs of bus stops.
Punggol Interchange received its first feeder on 17 Aug 2014 when Service 386 was introduced under the BSEP scheme. As a rapidly expanding new town, Punggol is expected to host more feeder services in the upcoming future.

Punggol Temporary Bus Interchange Expansion
In April 2015, LTA called for a tender to expand the existing Punggol Temporary Bus Interchange. The expansion will see an expanded interchange concourse, along with new boarding berths and toilets. A further 13 parking spaces will be added to the current 38 parking lots. This will be achieved through an expansion in space of 0.8ha from the current 1.2ha. Construction of the expansion will start in Q3 2015 after LTA has awarded the tender. The expanded concourse will allow for about 4 to 5 new bus services under BSEP.
