The terminal has a single vehicular concourse area with a bus park in the middle, and a combined entrance/exit leading to Tuas West Drive. The passenger concourse features a linear alighting berth for two to three buses, and five sawtooth boarding berths, but only one is in use. Terminal facilities include a Passenger Service Office. drivers’ lounge, a NTWU canteen, and toilets.

Throughout its years of operation, Tuas Bus Terminal was operating under capacity, serving only four bus services at its peak.

History:

Tuas Bus Terminal was opened on 2 January 1998 to support the expansion of the industrial areas at Tuas and Tuas South. It served as a terminating point for bus services extending far into Tuas, with Service 192 and 193 extended to terminate there on the launch day.

At its peak, the terminal served just four bus services owing to its remote location. Services 182 (to Jurong East, later shortened to Boon Lay) and 183 (looping at Tuas South) operated out of Tuas Bus Terminal between July 1998 and May 2002 until they were merged into Service 182 between Boon Lay and Tuas South Ave 9 (Loop), bypassing the terminal.

On 7 October 2017, the terminal was relocated to a new facility built on the roof of Tuas MRT Depot, near the junction of Tuas West Drive and Tuas Link 4, and right beside the Tuas Link MRT Station of the East-West Line extension.
