Route Shortening to Joo Koon Bus Interchange
Route shortening poster to Joo Koon for Sv255

As part of Phase 3 of the Joo Koon Bus Interchange Opening Route Amendments, Service 255 was shortened to Joo Koon Int via Benoi Rd from 12 December 2015.

The deleted route sector along Jurong West St 63 and Pioneer MRT Station was replaced by the amendment of Service 192 while the deleted Benoi Sector sector was replaced by new Service 253.

Operating hours were pushed back 15mins as the traveling time from Joo Koon to Gul Circle is faster as compared to from Boon Lay.
