Parks Services

WeHaveMoved1

Parks Services are special bus services operated by SBS Transit that connect various parks to and from nearby bus interchanges. Introduced in 2005, several existing bus services (400, 401 & 403) were converted to Parks services and two additional bus services (408 & 409) were introduced. Targeted at park-goers, they enhance the connectivity of several parks by providing direct bus services to within the parks itself.

List of Parks services:

To date, only five services have been designated as Parks services. They are:

Bus Service Description

On 16 March 2009, Parks 400, 401 and 403 were reverted to regular Trunk routes.

Fares:

Fares for Parks services are based on flat-fares, regardless of mode of payment (card or cash). Adult fare is $1.10, Child / Student fare is $0.55, and Senior Citizen fare is $0.80. Bus concession passes and distance-based fares are not applicable.

From 3 August 2014, Parks services will charge $1.20 for Adults, PWD and WTCS cardholders. Students pay $0.60 and Senior Citizens pay $0.85. Children below 7 years of age travel free.

Operating Hours:

Parks services initially operated daily, but were subsequently converted to weekend operations after lack of demand. Today, they only operate on Weekends and Public Holidays only.
