Loyang Bus Depot is the second bus depot (after Bulim Depot) that LTA developed and funded, as part of the review of the enhanced structural assistance that the Government is providing the bus industry, as announced in Committee of Supply (COS) 2012. The depot is intended to accommodate additional buses that are being introduced over the years, as the overall bus capacity increases under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP).

Contract RD259 for the design and construction of Loyang Depot was awarded to Huationg Contractor Pte Ltd for S$61,180,195.15. When completed by December 2015, the new bus depot will accommodate about 500 buses and be equipped with facilities for daily bus operations, bus repair/ maintenance and a rest area for bus drivers.

SBS Transit use

As of Mar 2015, the depot is used for parking of newly delivered and unregistered SBS Transit Mercedes-Benz Citaros for Bedok North Depot.

The parking area has portable toilet and a container SBS Transit office. The parking area is divided to various zones from Zone A to Zone J for various bus services.

Under the Government Contracting Model, operations of this bus depot have been transferred to a new operator, the Go-Ahead Group, who won the tender in operating the Loyang Bus Package. The newly completed depot was handed over to the Go-Ahead Group on 11 December 2015, allowing sufficient time for the operator to build up its resources, such as recruitment and training of bus captains and technicians, for a smooth transition.

Operator History:

  • Jun 2015 – Dec 2015: SBS Transit Ltd
  • Dec 2015 — : Go-Ahead Group


Government Contracting Model (GCM)

Under the GCM, Loyang Bus Depot will be bundled together with 25 bus routes as part of the Loyang Bus Package. These routes would operate mainly from Pasir Ris & Punggol Bus Interchanges, with the Depot handling the operations of all buses operating on these routes.

The Depot will take in an initial number of around 400 buses (leased to the successful tenderer) in 2016, before growing to about 500 buses in 2021, in tandem with expected ridership growth and the development of Pasir Ris & Punggol New Town.
