The old Tuas Bus Terminal was located at the end of Upper Jurong Road in the 1970s, next to Tuas Fishing Village. When Tuas was redeveloped into an industrial estate, part of Upper Jurong Road was renamed to Tuas Road. Operations ceased when Boon Lay Bus Interchange opened in 1990.
In 1998, the present-day Tuas Bus Terminal was constructed and remains operating till today. The interchange was built with five sawtooth berths, but only one is being used today. There is an interchange office, toilets, and a NTWU canteen which usually serves workers from nearby factories in addition to bus drivers.
In the future, the terminal is expected to be moved to a new site at the junction of Tuas West Drive and Tuas Link 4, right beside the Tuas Link MRT Station of the East-West Line extension.
