Route History

Service 32 is a trunk route spanning from East to West, supplementing various residential areas of the island. From Bedok, the route passes through Frankel Avenue, East Coast, Tanjong Katong, Old Airport, Kallang, Bugis and River Valley, continuing west to Redhill, Margaret Drive and Holland Village. Serving low-density private housing estates, it is a supplementary route between its many areas of service, with average frequencies over 15 minutes during off-peak hours.

As the only route serving the full stretch of Frankel Avenue, this service is a helpful connection towards nearby MRT stations and the City. Also, it serves the full stretch of River Valley Road with the East, where bus connections there are limited since most East-West routes pass through the CBD, Chinatown or Orchard Road.

The route encounters low to medium demand throughout the day as a supplementary route, and as such, operates a full fleet of single-deck buses.

No boarding and alighting is allowed at Buona Vista Ter.

Fare: Charges fares for regular trunk services. See Bus Fares for exact fares.

Fleet: Service 32′s fleet comprises single-deck Volvo B10M MkIV, Scania K230UB and Mercedes-Benz Citaro buses. Double-deck buses are not used due to low demand and height restrictions along many areas of its route.
