The interchange has two vehicular concourse areas, North and South. The North concourse features five sawtooth berths, two of which are used for alighting and the remaining three for boarding, with queuing lanes installed. Buses park at a bus park opposite the passenger concourse, and separate ingress and egress lanes lead to Bukit Batok Central.

The South concourse features fifteen end-on berths, which are shared among five bus services. Two end-on berths are reserved for wheelchair boarding and alighting. A combined ingress and egress lane cuts underneath the interchange and leads to a junction with Bukit Batok Central. Both concourses are able to accommodate double-deck buses.

The interchange concourse has pedestrian entrance/exits located on the East edge (towards Blocks 633/634) and the West edge (towards Block 630 and sheltered walkway to Bukit Batok MRT) .

In 2015-2016 Addition & Alteration Works at Bukit Batok Bus Interchange (Contract PT229) were carried out by Espirit Building & Engineering Pte. Ltd. for S$1.16 million. Works included the construction of new offices beside the alighting berth, renovation of existing infrastructure, the installation of new halogen lighting and wall fans for the concourse area, and repainting of the entire interchange building.

Historical Background

Bukit Batok Bus Interchange commenced operations on Sunday, 27 September 1987. Then, it was managed by Singapore Bus Services (SBS), which operated four feeder bus services 361, 365, 366 and 367, in addition to existing Services 61, 106, 122, 179 and 189. The interchange was also designed to accommodate double-decker buses, and took over operations from a temporary roadside bus terminal along Bukit Batok West Avenue 3 since 1984.

In 2000, the Government announced that Trans Island Bus Services (TIBS) area of responsibilities were being extended to Bukit Batok. As such, operations at Bukit Batok Interchange were progressively handed over from SBS to TIBS as such:

  • 18 Jun 2000: Services 77, 189, 361, 365, 367
  • 03 Sep 2000: Service 61
  • 24 Dec 2000: Services 106 and 173

In May 2003, feeder services 361, 365 and 367 were renumbered to 941, 945 and 947.

As part of the transition to the Bus Contracting Model, Bukit Batok Interchange was allocated under the Bulim Bus Package. As such, from 28 May 2016, the interchange was operated and maintained by new operator Tower Transit, who took over all bus services except for 61 and 852. In August 2017, Feeder Bus Service 944 was introduced but operated by SMRT Buses.
