A&S Transit Night Bus Services

From Friday, 27 January 2023, late-night commuters in Singapore have more transportation options as two new private bus services begin operating one-way routes from the city to the heartlands.

The two Night Bus Services, operated by local private bus company A&S Transit, were announced on their Facebook page on 18 January 2023:

The Night Bus Services by A&S Transit were created to fill a void left by the discontinuation of the NightRider and Nite Owl bus routes, which were operated by public transport operators SMRT Buses and SBS Transit before the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, only taxis & private-hire cars were available to commuters who dwell in the city area past regular public transport operating hours.


Operating Details

A&S Transit operates the Night Bus Services on Fridays, Saturdays & Eves of Public Holidays. These unidirectional services will start in the City before heading to the heartlands, with five trips departing Shenton Way at 11:30 pm, 12:15 am, 1:00 am, 1:45 am, and 2:30 am. More bus trips may be scheduled on the eves of public holidays.

A&S Transit will charge a flat fare of $4.50 regardless of the distance travelled, similar to that of NightRider services prior to their COVID-19 suspension. Passengers who pay by cash will be charged $5.00, and will need to provide the exact amount to the bus driver.

Both NS-1 and NS-2 services will each be served by MAN A22 diesel buses that the company acquired from SMRT in 2021. Each bus has a seating capacity of 43 passengers, with no standing passengers allowed.
