The Parkway Parade shuttle services was introduced to bring shoppers from the various MRT Stations to Parkway Parade during weekends and public holidays. The boarding point at Parkway Parade is along Marine Parade Central, opposite DBS Bank.
The shuttle services observe a strict “no standing capacity” rule, which means that once all the seats are filled up in the shuttle bus, boarding for the remainder passengers in the queue would be denied. This would result in the remaining commuters to wait for the next shuttle bus, which may be in another 2 hours, depending on the frequency. Hence we would advise all passengers who wish to board the shuttle to arrive at least 10-15 minutes earlier (especially at Parkway Parade) at the boarding point for the respective routes.
The shuttle bus routes are only unidirectional and are not loop services. All passengers will have to alight at the respective MRT station / Parkway Parade.
Shuttle Bus Fleet: The shuttle services run on private coaches by Loh Gim Chong Transport, which has seating capacity of around 43.
