Service 12e Poster

Bus Service 12e is a Limited-stop Express Bus Service which offers quicker journeys for commuters at Tampines, Simei, and Bedok South, linking them with the Central areas of Bugis, . Operating throughout the day, it only calls at selected bus stops served by its parent Bus Service 12, and charges Express Fares as a result.

In between Bedok South and Bugis, the bus plies an express sector along the East Coast Parkway (ECP) in both directions. The route operates daily at 20-minute intervals during the peak hours, and 30-minute intervals during the off-peak hours.

Service 12e is the second new route to be introduced under the Bus Contracting Model (BCM) after Service 110, as well as the first limited-stop service to operate daily (since 188R and 963R only operate on Weekends and PHs). The use of the lowercase e as the service suffix has its origins from Fast-Forward services introduced by SBS Transit in 2005, which are limited-stop services operating only during the peak hours.

Reduction in Operating Hours:

Along with several other express services, operating hours for Express 12e will be revised from 9 February 2020. Trips from Pasir Ris Bus Interchange will operate till 6:30pm, while trips from Kampong Bahru Bus Terminal only start operations at 12:30pm.

Departure Timings:

Fare: Charges distance-based Express Fares. See Bus Fares.

    Boarded bus 12e (SG5914T) at Pasir Ris Polyclinic about 1040am on 16 May. Very rude driver. Extremely frustrated. Driver stops at every bus stop although no boarding or alighting passengers and many other buses pass it before he move out. Even a Bus 12 pass it.

    Takes me so long just to reach Tanah Merah MRT. Is this meant to be correct way – stopping and not moving off ?

    Can Go Ahead Singapore Bus make a stop opposite Eastern Lagoon II before exiting to ECP AND make a stop outside Eastern Lagoon II after exiting the ECP to Bedok South Ave 1. Presently 12e stops @ Casa Fina. Many passeners have to walk from CasaFina to Upp. East Coast Rd. This is a feed back and hoping for your favourable reply. Many from Eastern Lagoons I & II, Bayshore Park, The Bayshore, Lagoon View, Hua Xin Court and Laguna Green will benefit and be happy with these 2 stops. Thank you, P.S.Lee

    I am so glad to have you introduce 12e services, it just benefit my precious time by taking this bus number. Unfortunately it just puzzled me that how come you dont stop at the bus stop after ECP along the rochor road instead of stopping only at bugis junction bus stop. Hopefully you can enlighten me also have a consideration of my thought. Thank you
