Basic Bus Services:
Jump to Trunk Services (2 – 100, 101 – 405, 700 – 990) or Feeder Services

Basic bus services are the main form of bus services being offered in Singapore, providing daily bus connections across the island with a vast network of bus routes. There are over 250 trunk routes in Singapore, with more under planning under the Bus Services Enhancement Programme (BSEP).

Currently, basic bus services are offered by public transport operators (PTOs) SBS Transit and SMRT Buses, each with their own areas of responsibility. They usually operate between 5:00am to 1:00am the next day, with selected routes having extended operating hours during eves of Public Holidays.

There are two main forms of basic bus services: Trunk services and Feeder services. While Trunk services are spread across the island, Feeder services provide localized bus connections within a single residential estate.

  1. Dear Sir/Madam,

    I would like to suggest the following bus route:

    Suggested Route:
    Woodlands Regional Centre
    Woodlands Ave 2
    SLE
    BKE
    PIE
    Stevens Road
    Zion Road
    Cantonment Road
    Keppel Road
    Harbourfront Station

    This would shave a lot of time for commuters travelling from the north to the south and vice versa.

    Thank you.
