Route History

Introduced in 1992, Service 19 is one of three daily daily services to Changi Airfreight Centre, formerly known as Changi Airport Cargo Complex or CACC. The route connects Tampines Regional Centre and to the offices and industries in the Changi area. In parallel with normal commuting patterns, much of its demand is encountered during the peak hours when workers commute between the industrial areas and transport nodes at Tampines.

Changi Airfreight Centre is a restricted area and only staff with valid passes are allowed to enter. Auxiliary police officers will board the bus to check for staff passes at the Police Pass Office along Airline Road. Visitors who do not have a pass are to alight and re-board the bus after it returns from completing its loop within the Airfreight Centre (at a separate bus stop opposite Police Pass Office).

Upon tapping out of the bus, the exit reader will display “Ride Suspended”. It will resume the journey when one taps onboard the same service after the bus comes out of the Airfreight Centre. Cash-paying passengers will still have to pay a full fare to their journey after they board the bus.

Alongside Services 9 and 89, Service 19 is one of three daily trunk services to Changi Airfreight Center (formerly known as Changi Airport Cargo Complex).
