Fare Information

Service 2 is a trunk route linking the suburban and residential areas of Changi Village, Simpang Bedok and Eunos to the central areas of Chinatown, Clarke Quay, Bugis and Kallang. Even though a large portion of Service 2 duplicates the East West MRT Line, it continues to receive considerable demand, both during peak and off-peak periods by shuttling commuters over short distances without the hassle of entering and exiting the MRT network.

The route also offers important connections for developments along Upper Changi Road North, Loyang Avenue and Changi Village, connecting to Upper Changi and Tanah Merah MRT station. It is also the sole bus service plying along a section of Upp Changi Link and a short section of Upp Changi Road (near ITE College East), with three pairs of bus stops not shared by any other bus service.

Service 2 is currently the lowest numerical value for any bus service in Singapore, after Service 1 was withdrawn in the past. Under the Bus Contracting Model, this route was bundled under the Loyang Bus Package, and was handed over from SBS Transit to Go-Ahead on 18 Sep 2016, with departure timings from Changi Village brought forward.

    Maybe Service 2 should start and end at Pasir Ris via Pasir Ris Drive 3, Drive 4, Stret 41, Drive 6, Drive 1, Loyang Avenue then continue its existing route along Loyang Way. That way, instead of taking Service 5 thats plies Pasir Ris Drive 3 and New Loyang Link to Upp Changi Rd Nth from Pasir Ris Int, the people in Pasir Ris Town will have beter connectivity to reach Upp Changi Rd Nth with Service instead of taking a bus to Pasir Ris Int and transfer to Service 5.

    This is all based on my opinions.

    Hi good morning,

    My name is THANGARAJAN work as Auxiliary Police at AETOS Holding Pte Ltd. My base at Changi Loyang Fire Post. This morning I was waiting at bus stand 97201 for bus Number 2 around 0910 for prayer at Changi. There is bus no 2 arrived around 0920 but didn’t stop. The driver just slow down and continue his journey without stop even I stand near to pick up and dropping point at bus stand 97201. At last I hv to take bus number 29 for prayer. Please kindly advise to me why the driver didn’t stop the bus at the bus stand I state above. Appreciate for your response.

    Thank you
