Route History

Service 130 connects residents of Ang Mo Kio, Sin Ming and Balestier to the City areas, as well as serving areas like Kitchener Road.

Double-deckers were introduced to this route in 2013, with a second DD bus added to the fleet in 2014. No alighting is allowed at Shenton Way Terminal.

    How would I find out the estimated time of arrival of the bus I just boarded. Eg . I got on the 130 at Kitchener Road and my destination is Any Mo Kio terminus.
