Bus Service 248 is a Jurong Industrial Service serving industrial areas around Tuas and Tuas South with connections to transport nodes at Tuas West Road and Tuas Link MRT stations, plying Tuas West Dr, Pioneer Rd, Tuas Ave 20, Tuas Cres, and Tuas South Avenues 5/12/14/9/10 before rejoining Tuas South Ave 5 and returning towards Tuas Bus Terminal.

The new route brings about greater connectivity to the Tuas South region, with a majority of bus stops served by this route being new bus stops. Industries around Tuas Crescent and Tuas South (including Tuas Biomedical Park II), and workers living in dormitories around Tuas, stand to benefit from enhanced bus-rail connectivity offered in tandem with the opening of the East West Line‘s Tuas West Extension.

The route plies an express sector along Tuas South Avenue 5 between Tuas Crescent and the junction of Tuas South Avenue 8 for faster connectivity and reduced overcrowding for passengers intending to head to Tuas South. Commuters along the express sector can take Bus Services 182/182M or 247 to MRT stations in Tuas.
