Services 247, 248 are new bus services from Tuas Terminal, Service 256 will be withdrawn, and the remaining 3 will be re-organized to serve new MRT stations along the Tuas West Extension.

    Instead of service 256 being “withdrawn”, a nicer term would be “integrated”.

    Is there a chance bus 256 will be revived?

      Service number yes, route unlikely
