Route History

Service 254 serves the industrial areas around Pioneer Road, Tuas Road, Tuas Crescent and Tuas Avenue 11 with connections to Joo Koon MRT. The route serves the full stretch of Tuas Road only when heading towards Tuas West, and not towards Joo Koon.

Formerly at 25.5km, it was the longest of Jurong Industrial Services, reaching all the way into Tuas West, before its route shortening to Joo Koon. As an industrial service, demand is high during the peak hours, and relatively low during off-peak hours.

Route Shortening to Joo Koon Bus Interchange

Service 254 Route Amendment PosterAs part of the Joo Koon Bus Interchange opening and accompanying Jurong Industrial Estate route amendments, Phase 3 implementation (12 December 2015) shortened Service 254 to Joo Koon Bus Interchange, via Benoi Rd.

The deleted route sector along Boon Lay Way and Pioneer Rd North will be replaced by the amendment of Service 251 while part of the deleted Pioneer Rd sector will be replaced by Service 253.

Service 254 continues to serve the full stretch of Tuas Road, only towards Tuas West. Also, Service 254 does not call at all bus stops along Benoi Rd except the stop before / after Joo Koon Int; those bus stops will be served by Service 257.

Operating hours are pushed back from 0545 – 2300 to 0600 – 2315 daily, owing to shorter travelling time between Joo Koon and Tuas West as compared to Boon Lay. However, the first bus timing was reverted back to 0545 from Joo Koon in Jan 2016.

Fare: Charges fares for regular trunk services. See Bus Fares for exact fares.
