Premium Bus Services (PBS) are bus services that offer more comfort versus other bus services or other forms of transport. They cater towards commuters who do not mind paying higher fares for a more comfortable and direct journey to their destinations.

Almost all Premium services concentrate on catering towards commuters heading to and from the Central Business District (CBD) during the morning and evening peak hours. The direct nature of Premium bus routes makes it more appealing than ordinary bus routes or taking a train, as passengers are assured of a seat onboard, plus it costs a lot less to travel by Premium bus than by taxi.

Unlike basic bus services, Premium services are designed primarily to ease the morning rush hour crowd heading towards the CBD. Currently, a total of about 70 PBS operate from various major estates to the CBD.

Bus Operators

Premium buses are operated by both public and private bus companies. Any company can set up a Premium bus route provided it has been approved by the Public Transport Council (PTC).

Fare Structure

Regardless of boarding and alighting points, Premium services charge a flat fare ranging from S$2.70 to S$7.00 per trip. On average, a Premium service costs $4.00 per trip.

BeeLine Bus Services

Apart from Premium Services approved by the Land Transport Authority, BeeLine Bus Services provide premium bus services subject to commuter demand. View the route details in the link.

  1. Premium bus 568 always skipped the route and bus stops. The bus frequency is also very bad. The service of bus 568 is from bad to worst. Please review.

  2. Hi Team
    I would like to appreciate the team for coming up with “Premium Bus Service” concept. It increases the convenience and reduces the travel time.
    Can I request to add a service to harbourfront from Yishun Avenue 1 / Avenue 2.
