Jurong East Bus Interchange opened on Sunday, 30th June 1985, located at 155 Jurong East Street 13 opposite CPF Jurong Building. The airy and spacious interchange was popular with many commuters. Many of the bus services were transferred from Teban Gardens Bus Terminal and some rerouted from Jurong Bus Interchange. The interchange catered mainly to residents and cross-border commuters taking buses to Malaysia.
The shift to Jurong East Temporary Interchange:
In 2010, plans were underway to construct a new Integrated Transport Hub at Jurong East. The original bus interchange and surrounding plots of land were planned for commercial developments. Construction of Jurong East Temporary Bus Interchange was awarded to Sato Kogyo (S) Pte. Ltd on 17 Feb 2011, at a cost of S$5,980,000.00.
On 17th December 2011, Jurong East Interchange was closed down and operations shifted to the nearby Jurong East Temporary Interchange, located west of the MRT station and opposite the shopping mall JCube. The temporary interchange is expected to serve for around five years while the construction of the Integrated Transport Hub is underway.
The new Jurong East Bus Interchange will be integrated with a mixed development comprising of a seven-storey shopping mall and a 20-storey office building above it.
