Pasir Ris Bus Interchange is a bus station located in the residential town of Pasir Ris. Connecting with Pasir Ris MRT Station along the East-West MRT Line, the interchange is a transport node for commuters heading in and out of town, allowing for convenient transfers between the rail network and the many bus services at the interchange.

The interchange has a single vehicular concourse area, with a combined vehicular ingress/egress leading to a signalised junction with Pasir Ris Drive 3. A bus park is located in the middle of the interchange for the layover of buses. 

The passenger concourse is a sheltered bus waiting area wrapping around the bus movement area, with two alighting berths and seven boarding berths. The interior features oriental-styled roof trusses that are anchored at the ends by two pavilions designed with Chinese, Indian and Malay motifs. Commuter facilities include queue lanes at every berth, bus departure timing screens, and retail outlets. A covered walkway links to Pasir Ris MRT Station and White Sands Shopping Mall.

Apart from regular bus services, the terminal is used as a pick-up and drop-off location for shuttle buses between Pasir Ris and the SAF Ferry Terminal, frequented by national servicemen heading to and from the island of Pulau Tekong.

History:

Pasir Ris Bus Interchange opened on Sunday, 10th December 1989 to provide bus services between Pasir Ris New Town and Loyang Industrial Estate. Pasir Ris MRT Station opened six days later, on 16th December 1989. Unlike other interchanges, the ticketing booth, timekeeper’s office and kiosks are built along the edge of the concourse, reducing possible human congestion during peak periods. 

Over the years, several improvements have been made to the ageing interchange, including the upgrading of lighting fixtures and CCTV systems, and the upgrading of all boarding berths for wheelchair accessibility with an additional sheltered walkway linking each berth to the concourse area. Electronic next bus departure timing screens have also been installed by SBS Transit.
