Historical Background:

In the past, there were multiple bus termini in the Buona Vista region, such as Ghim Moh Bus Terminal, Holland Drive Bus Terminal and Commonwealth Avenue Terminal.

Commonwealth Avenue Bus Terminal was located at the junction of North Buona Vista Road and Commonwealth Avenue. Built in the 1970s, it was the major bus terminal in the area. By the late eighties, its operations were shifted to the newer Buona Vista Bus Terminal, and the old terminal is now a car park. There was also a Holland Drive Bus Terminal for CSS 602, which was opposite Buona Vista Swimming Complex. 602 was later amended to loop at Holland Drive and the terminal converted to a bus stop.

The terminal:

Buona Vista Bus Terminal is a small bus terminal that serves only as a layover point for buses, owing to the lack of space for the construction of passenger facilities. It is bordered by the Buona Vista Community Centre complex, Civil Service College building, and North Buona Vista Road. The terminal building contains a timekeeper’s office, driver’s lounges and toilets.

There are 15 parking lots for buses, along with several other motorcycle lots. The terminal has a combined vehicular entrance and exit leading to Holland Drive, and a second vehicular exit leading to North Buona Vista Road (southbound).

Currently, SBS Transit is the anchor operator of Buona Vista Bus Terminal, operating all bus services that call at the facility. As part of the BCM rollout, the successful tenderer of the Clementi Bus Package will be the future anchor operator of Buona Vista Bus Terminal.

In Year 2012, the terminal was reconfigured for S$1.2 million to make way for a new utilities building along the north edge (LTA contract VT343). A new terminal building was also constructed along the south edge, which repaced the older building on the east edge of the terminal.

In the news:

In January 2013, a 27-year-old man stole an SBS Transit bus from the terminal for a short joyride, and abandoned it near his home along Commonwealth Avenue. For stealing a bus worth $300,000, operating a bus without possessing a class 4 licence and not having a third party insurance coverage while doing so, he was sentenced to nine months and two weeks in prison and suspended from driving for a year.
