SBS Transit Bus Service 170A

WeHaveMoved1

SBS Transit Bus Service 170A is a parallel bus service operating alongside its parent cross-border Service 170 (Red Plate). Plying unidirectionally from Queen Street Terminal to Woodlands Train Checkpoint at Woodlands Centre Road via Rochor, Bukit Timah, Upper Bukit Timah and Woodlands Road, the route duplicates the local sectors of Service 170 without crossing the border.

Previously an ad-hoc service, it was formally introduced from Sunday, 27 December 2015 to operate daily.

Route History

Service 170A is parallel bus service supplementing trips of its parent cross-border Service 170 (Red Plate). Plying unidirectionally from Queen Street Bus Terminal to Woodlands Train Checkpoint, the route duplicates the local sectors of Service 170 without crossing the border. Calling it a shortworking trip would be a misnomer – its route is far from short, standing at 23.6km long.

The route is designed to improve the reliability of its parent service 170 without sacrificing existing scheduled trips. Despite the Downtown Line and the other bus routes it duplicates along the Bukit Timah and Upper Bukit Timah corridor, SBS Transit has strived to continue keeping Bus 170 reliable for commuters who need it. Formerly operating at dismal frequencies owing to congestion across the Causeway and dodgy timekeeping, dedicated buses now reliably ply the local sectors of Service 170 in both directions. Hence was the need for Service 170A, differentiating the local buses from the cross-border buses by terminating at Woodlands Centre Road (Woodlands Train Checkpoint) before returning to Queen Street Terminal.

‘Withdrawn’ in the early 2000s, there was no mention of Service 170A until its reappearance in 2014 as an ad-hoc service. Details were not published by SBS Transit although they operated on weekend evenings to ease the high demand between Little India and workers’ dormitories along Woodlands Road, using cross-border buses drawn from Service 170’s fleet. Only on Sunday, 27 December 2015 was Service 170A formally introduced as a full-day service, operating daily.

Following the introduction of Service 170A, departures of Service 170 (Red Plate) were reduced.

Mode of operation

A full trip of Service 170A from Queen Street Terminal to Woodlands Centre Road (Woodlands Train Checkpoint) takes about one hour, and all passengers must alight at the terminating stop. The bus will then proceed to the next stop, Woodlands Centre Road (Opp Blk 1A), and begin its return journey towards Queen Street Terminal, operating as Service 170. For drivers, 170A would be more of a loop service with little time to rest at the looping point.

Service 170A buses and their drivers operate independently of Service 170 despite the many similarities. Their buses do not cross the border, and as such, are able to use non-cross-border buses such as Mercedes-Benz O530 Citaros. As such, local bus drivers can be deployed to Service 170A (Currently, SBS Transit rosters only Malaysian drivers to cross-border services). Departures from Queen Street Terminal are staggered with its parent Service 170 (Red Plate) to space buses apart.

On the Integrated Driver’s Fare Console (IDFC), Service 170A is displayed as Service 770. On the return trip, they use the regular Service 170.

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

Fleet: Mercedes-Benz Citaros are commonly deployed on Service 170A and subsequently perform special departures back down to Queen Street Ter from Woodlands Centre Rd. These buses do not need to be JB-registered as they do not cross the border into Malaysia.

Service 118 Route Launch Poster

Service 118 Route Launch Poster

Service 118 connects the residential towns of Punggol and Tampines West with Changi Business Park, via the Tampines Expressway (TPE), Simei Avenue and Xilin Avenue. It is the fifty-first bus service to be introduced under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP).

Prior to the launch of Service 118, existing Premium Services 593 and 744 also originate and terminate at both Punggol and Changi Business Park which operate during peak hours only and charge a $3 flat fare. Service 118 provides a cheaper alternative for Changi Business Park commuters.

The launch of Service 118 along with Service 47 also marks the start of operations of the new Changi Business Park Bus Terminal.

The route benefits commuters with improved connections between Punggol, Tampines West and Changi Business Park. Plying the TPE, Service 118 calls at the Tampines Expressway (Punggol Road) Bus Interchange, facilitating transfers to other bus services.

Service 118 also serves Temasek Polytechnic and ITE College East, providing additional connectivity to the students and staff there.

Service 118 will be part of the 25 routes that the Go Ahead Group will take over from SBS Transit under the Government Contracting ModelLoyang Bus Package.

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

Fleet: Service 118’s fleet comprises a majority fleet of Double-Decker Volvo B9TL buses, with one Mercedes-Benz O530 Citaro.

————————————————————————————————————————————

First Day Observations:

Due to errors in scheduling, the first bus of Service 118 departed Punggol Interchange at 5:30am, while the published first bus timing was in fact at 5:45am. The last bus was also scheduled to depart both Punggol Interchange and Changi Business Park Terminal at 11:45pm, instead of the published 11:30pm timing. The scheduled last buses (11:45pm) were allowed to return to depot without performing its last trip as the previous scheduled trips at 11:30pm was the actual last buses.

Due to several issues with the IDFC system, the card readers could not deduct fares, and as such, Service 118 offered free rides for throughout the morning and most of the afternoon. In addition, several buses were not being programmed with the new Electronic Display Signage (EDS) codes. As a result, several BSEP buses were swapped out with non-BSEP buses which have the updated codes.

While several Volvo B9TL buses were swapped out in the morning for IDFC repair, single-deck Mercedes-Benz Citaro buses were also deployed, running a few trips before being taken out of service when Volvo B9TL buses returned from the depot.

Service 117 Route Launch Poster

Service 117 connects the residential towns of Punggol, Yishun and Sembawang directly with Seletar Aerospace Park. It is the fifty-first (51st) bus service to be introduced under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP).

The service plys Seletar West Link, skipping bus stops along West Camp Road that is served by Service 103. It is a faster travel alternative for passengers who utilize Service 85 to travel between Punggol and Yishun towns, as it does not ply through Sengkang residential areas entirely.

The service is provides a faster travel alternative between Khatib, Yishun and Sembawang MRT stations.

Service 117 is also the first SBS Transit Bus Service to serve Sembawang Bus Interchange, which is currently fully served by SMRT Buses.

Special Departures:

Route Poster for Service 258

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 was launched on 21 November 2015 as 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.

Together with Service 99, Service 258 is one of the first two services to terminate at the new Joo Koon Bus Interchange.
