The terminal:

Opened in 2010 along with the operation of Resorts World Sentosa, this terminal occupies part of the coach park, using red-painted parallel parking lots reserved for SMRT Buses. In bus route information sheets, buses which call at Resorts World Sentosa simply pick-up and drop-off passengers at the designated passenger berths within the basement carpark, with no mention of the bus terminal. In practice, buses park at this terminal for layovers. Because the terminal and passenger pick-up/drop-off points are in separate places, drivers must make a large round around the carpark from the alighting berths to the parking area.

This terminal does not handle boarding and alighting activities. Facilities include a drivers’ office, toilets and a few benches.

Boarding/Alighting Points:

Boarding and alighting activities for 188R, 963R, NR1 and NR6 are located at a pick-up point outside the Forum, complete with waiting lanes. RWS8 has a separate boarding area nearer to the Convention Center due to ease of boarding and high passenger demand. Sentosa Bus routes 1 and 2 also call at this boarding point.
