Bus Service 127 is a short trunk service from Tampines Central to Tampines Industrial Avenue 5, mainly serving residents in Tampines Concourse, Tampines Avenue 9 as well as industries in Tampines Wafer Fabrication Park such as T5@Tampines, Siltronic Singapore, JTC Nanospace @ Tampines and GlobalFoundries Tampines with direct bus connection to Tampines Central and MRT Station.

Workers in Tampines Wafer Fabrication Park used to walk to either Tampines Road for Bus Service 72 or Tampines Avenue 10 for other bus service connections before the launch of Bus Service 127.

The amendment of Service 127 to Tampines North Drive 1 from 11 October 2020 enhanced connectivity for new Build-to-Order flats along Tampines North such as Tampines GreenRidges, Tampines GreenWeave and Tampines Greenview.

    LTA planners could have taken the opportunity to extend 127 to Compassvale Int also, relieving 27’s loading between Sengkang and Tampines. Maybe got potential that it will be extended to Buangkok ITH when its ready in 2022.

    Dear Sir,

    I working at Tampines Industrial Ave 5, current we have another bus service 127, can this be turn out from old tampines procceed to Pasir Ris instead of going back to Tampines Interchange as bus service 58 takes a long time interval. As bus 127 is usually empty during off peak , if can go Pasir Ris ,it helps us for more lunch venues .
