History:

New Bridge Road Bus Terminal was built in the 1970s to serve the large number of bus services terminating at the south end of New Bridge Road. It replaced roadside bus terminals of the past, which frequently caused congestion on the roads. Most and eventually all bus services were moved from their roadside terminating points to new terminal.

The terminal continued hosing a large number of bus routes until the construction of the East West Line in the early 1990s (and later North-East Line in 2003). Many bus routes between New Bridge Road and the housing estates were withdrawn or amended away from New Bridge Road under various bus rationalization schemes to prevent wasteful duplication of the MRT lines, leaving the handful of trunk routes that remain there today

By end-2017, New Bridge Road Bus Terminal will be relocated to Kampong Bahru Bus Terminal, occupying land formerly owned by Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTM), the Malaysian national railway operator. The old New Bridge Road Bus Terminal, along with an adjacent surface car park, will be cleared to build a new surgery centre, expanding existing infrastructure at Singapore General Hospital (SGH). Called the Elective Care Centre, the new facility is scheduled to be ready by 2022, adding more operating theatres, specialist outpatient clinics and inpatient facilities to SGH.

The opening of Kampong Bahru Bus Terminal was delayed until 2018.
