Transitioning to Seletar Bus Package (Tranche 1)

March 11 - March 12

SBS Transit MAN A95 (SG2017C) - Service 71

Fourteen (14) existing SBS Transit Bus Services under the Seletar Bus Package (Negotiated Contract) will be transferred to the Seletar Bus Package (Tendered Contract) on Sunday, 11 March 2018.

The Seletar Bus Package, comprising 26 bus services and awarded to SBS Transit, will undergo 3-tranche transition period where SBS Transit assumes control of all bus routes. Tranche 1 (14 routes) includes all existing SBS Transit bus routes, whereas Tranche 2 and 3 (12 routes) are for existing SMRT bus routes.

The 14 SBS Transit Bus Services under Tranche 1 are as follows:

Service Destination 1 Destination 2 Type Description
24 Ang Mo Kio ↺ Changi Airport Trunk
70 Yio Chu Kang Shenton Way Trunk
70M Yio Chu Kang ↺ Temasek Ave Trunk Supplementary route
71 Yio Chu Kang ↺ Bishan St 11 Trunk
76 Yio Chu Kang Eunos Trunk
130 Ang Mo Kio Shenton Way Trunk
133 Ang Mo Kio Shenton Way Trunk
135 Ang Mo Kio ↺ Siglap Link Trunk
138 Ang Mo Kio ↺ Mandai Lake Rd Trunk
162 Yio Chu Kang Shenton Way Trunk
162M Yio Chu Kang ↺ Temasek Ave Trunk Supplementary route
261 Ang Mo Kio ↺ Ang Mo Kio Ind Park 1 Feeder
262 Ang Mo Kio ↺ Ang Mo Kio Ave 2 Feeder
265 Ang Mo Kio Depot ↺ Ang Mo Kio Ave 10 Townlink
268 Ang Mo Kio Depot ↺ Ang Mo Kio Ind Pk 2 Townlink
269 Ang Mo Kio ↺ Ang Mo Kio St 61 Feeder

Originally, the transitioning of the Seletar Bus Package was intended to have 5 tranches. This was reduced to 3 tranches when incumbent operator SBS Transit was awarded the contract.

For commuters, the switch from the Negotiated Contract to the Tendered Contract will have minimal impact on their commuting patterns, especially since the operators and bus fleets stay the same. However, with increased emphasis on specified EWT performance standards, bus drivers may be made to slow down to regulate the headway between buses.

Short Trip Service 265A will also be withdrawn from 12 March 2018, as part of the Seletar Bus Package transitioning. SBS Transit will operate additional trips to Bus Service 265 instead.

    Congrats to SBS transit on operating the amk and yio chu keng bus services

    I stay at amk avenue 4 and yesterday I was surprised that Scania buses were still deployed as I thought services 262, 265, 268 and 269 will have full Mercedes Citaro bus fleet
