Route History

Service 136 serves as a residential route between Ang Mo Kio, Serangoon Gardens, Upper Serangoon Road, Sengkang East (Rivervale) and Punggol East (Edgefield). The route is unique in having a u-turn at Upper Serangoon Road in the direction of Ang Mo Kio. Despite its unique inter-town route segments, demand remains moderate to weak during off-peak hours; however it still benefits from student demand from various schools in Sengkang and Punggol.

This service calls at Serangoon Garden Circus twice in different directions, i.e. towards Punggol Int and towards Ang Mo Kio Int. Red and white service plates are used to distinguish the direction of travel in addition to Electronic Display Signages (EDS) on buses. Red plate indicates buses heading for Punggol; white plate indicates buses heading for Ang Mo Kio.

Fare: Charges basic fares. See Bus Fares. Calculate your bus fare using LTA’s fare calculator on MyTransport.sg here.

    Hi,
    Will like to sing praise for your bus driver of Bus 136.
    I did not get his name thou.
    But, he is a living example to follow.
    I board the bus at around 4.27pm and was greeted by his board and courteous smile followed by a good afternoon greetings etc.
    I do hope that more and more drivers can follow him as an excellent example.
    I am currently in this bus, SG1189X.
    I am not very good with words.
    But, I just wanted to bring this to attention.
    Do give him some sort of encouragement to continue his beautiful service to us.
    Thank you.
