Tampines Bus Package

The Tampines Bus Package is one of fourteen bus packages under the Bus Contracting Model (BCM).

Under the BCM, bus routes are bundled into bus packages, consisting of a single bus depot, several bus interchanges/terminals, the bus routes and the buses themselves. With all bus infrastructure belonging to the Government, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) would contract out the bus package, select a bus operator (through a competitive tendering process), and lease these assets to the new operator.

The successful tenderer operates these bus routes and collects fares on behalf of LTA, while maintaining the associated bus infrastructure (buses & onboard equipment, depots, interchanges & terminals). In return, the operator is awarded an operating fee from LTA and potential bonuses via an incentive framework.

Currently under construction, the East Coast Integrated Depot would likely take over as the bus depot for this package as part of the tendered package when completed.


PT207 – Tampines Bus Package (Negotiated Contract Term: 2016 to 2024):

As part of the Bus Contracting Model which was fully implemented in September 2016, LTA entered into a Negotiated Contract with SBS Transit to operate bus services under the Tampines Bus Package until the awarded operator for the open tender of the Tampines Bus Package takes over operations. This was announced to be in Year 2024 by LTA in 2016.
