Route History

Townlink Service 358 serves residents and schools around Pasir Ris Neighbourhoods 5, 6 and 7 on the West Loop, and Neighbourhoods 2 and 4 on the East Loop, connecting both ends to Pasir Ris Town Centre.

A full trip of Service 358 will first ply the West Loop (via Pasir Ris Drive 10) followed by the East Loop (via Pasir Ris Street 41), while calling at Pasir Ris Interchange between loops. Terminating trips will display a red “T” sign to indicate that the bus will no longer continue its journey after reaching Pasir Ris Interchange. In which case, commuters can either change buses at Pasir Ris Interchange or wait for the next non-terminating trip.

At Pasir Ris Interchange, different boarding berths are used for the West (Berth B5) and East (Berth B4) loops. Passengers should check the service direction before boarding the bus.

During Eves of Public Holidays, last bus timings are extended to 1:10am to complement the extension of train operating hours.
