Service 258 serves the residential areas of Jurong West with connections to Boon Lay, Pioneer and Joo Koon MRT Stations, while terminating at Boon Lay and Joo Koon Bus Interchanges at both ends of the route. It is scheduled to enter service from 21 November 2015. It is the forty-ninth (49th) bus service to be introduced under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP).
As part of the Joo Koon Bus Interchange opening and accompanying Jurong Industrial Estate route reorganization (Phase 1 implementation), Service 258 was introduced to improve connectivity along Service 243G/243W’s route, connecting residential estates, schools and community amenities with bus connections to Pioneer MRT and Joo Koon MRT/Interchange, in addition to Boon Lay MRT/Interchange which 243G/243W currently serves.
The route extension makes Service 258 among the first two services to terminate at the new Joo Koon Bus Interchange, the other being Service 99.
