Changes in Bukit Panjang to Bus Services 171 & 180
From Sunday, 25 February 2018, Services 171 and 180 will have the following changes implemented to their respective routes:
Service 171 will be calling at a new pair of bus stops, Block 180 (Bus Stop 44739) and opposite Block 180 (Bus Stop 44731), along Jelebu Road in Bukit Panjang.
Previously in September 2017, as part of the Bukit Panjang Integrated Transport Hub Bus Service Amendment, Bus Service 171 was made to skip these exact same 2 bus stops.
Service 180 will be re-routed along Petir Road to serve Bukit Panjang Integrated Transport Hub.
Previously, Bus Service 180 used to serve the old Bukit Panjang Bus Interchange. With the closure of the interchange in Dec 2012 for the construction of Hillion Mall & Hillion Residences, Service 180 was amended to loop around Bukit Panjang via Upp Bt Timah Rd, Petir Rd, Jelebu Rd & Bt Panjang Rd. With the opening of the Bukit Panjang Integrated Transport Hub in September 2017, Service 180 was not amended to serve the new Integrated Transport Hub and remained looping around Bukit Panjang as part of the Bukit Panjang Integrated Transport Hub Bus Service Amendment.
These new bus service changes could have resulted from public feedback after the Sep 2017 amendment which resulted in the changes for Service 171 to be reverted.
