Changi Bus Park was built to supplement the limited parking space at Bedok North Depot, and to accommodate additional buses under the Bus Services Enhancement Programme (BSEP). It is also referred to as CGBP, and all refueling and maintenance works are carried out at Bedok North Bus Depot.

The bus park was handed over to SBS Transit in 28 Jan 2013 and began operations in mid-2013, which relieved the need for overnight parking of buses at Bedok and Tampines Bus Interchanges. With the majority of Tampines bus services relocated to CGBP for parking, much needed parking space was freed up at BNDEP for other buses.

Construction:

The construction of CGBP (Contract RD249 – Proposed Bus Park at Upper Changi Road East) was awarded to KTC Civil Engineering and Construction at a value of S$ 10,395,000. Construction involved a new road leading to the bus park (from New Upp Changi Rd) and the bus park itself, consisting of pavement and ancillary buildings.

To reduce noise pollution to nearby landed houses, large noise barriers (about 5m tall) were erected facing Sungei Bedok.

Future:

Changi Bus Park will not be a long term facility. A future Loyang Bus Depot near Loyang Industrial Estate and a Changi Bus Depot will provide adequate space for parking and maintenance of buses.

Depot Fleet:

Changi Bus Park currently houses the following models of buses:
