Service 135 serves as a residential route between Ang Mo Kio, Serangoon, MacPherson estate, Tanjong Katong and Marine Parade. Operating as a loop service, it is one of three routes to loop at Siglap Road. The route shares its popular Paya Lebar MRT – Marine Parade connection with Service 43 and 134. The route experiences moderate to high demand all-day route owing to multiple inter-town connections served.

Service 135 will be extended to Kembangan and converted to a bi-directional service by the 4th quarter of 2020, plying Marine Parade Road, East Coast Road and Frankel Avenue. The amendment will provide more residents with connection to Marine Parade (Joo Chiat Estates Updates Newsletter).

    Yes, 42 & 135 will share at Kembangan MRT of.

      I am guessing 1 of 4 things will happen:

      1. 135 terminates and begins at 42’s Kembangan bus stop “terminal”.
      2. Same as 1, but 42’s Kembangan bus stop terminal becomes the third full-fledged roadside bus terminal with a bus captain’s office, just like Ghim Moh and Sim’s Place.
      3. 135 goes to 42’s Kembangan bus stop terminal, but passes through and loops back to Ang Mo Kio using the roundabout further ahead from 42’s Kembangan bus stop terminal, instead of terminating there. (It will be fun to watch 135 do that)
      4. Same as 3, but 135 loops by following 42’s route north of the Kembangan bus stop terminal until opposite the Kembangan bus stop terminal, where it will continue back to Ang Mo Kio.

      Personally, I feel that 3 is most likely to happen, though the other possibilities are also possible.

        Edit: I didnt read the post carefully, ignore points 3 and 4 on 135 not stopping at Kembangan, although it might be possible 135 does not follow 42’s route.

    I agree with TIB1000B that double deckers be deployed on services 100 and 135.

    After they amended the route why they still never give double deckers to 100 & 135 for now?
