Service 258 serves the residential areas of Jurong West with connections to Boon Lay, Pioneer and Joo Koon MRT Stations, while looping at Jurong West Street 64 and terminating at Joo Koon Bus Interchange. It was launched on 21 November 2015 as the forty-ninth (49th) bus service to be introduced under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP), with a route from Joo Koon and looping at Boon Lay.
As part of the Joo Koon Bus Interchange opening and accompanying Jurong Industrial Estate route reorganization (Phase 1 implementation), Service 258 was introduced to improve connectivity along Service 243G/243W’s route, connecting residential estates, schools and community amenities with bus connections to Pioneer MRT and Joo Koon MRT/Interchange, in addition to Boon Lay MRT which 243G/243W currently serves.
Together with Service 99, Service 258 was one of the first two services to terminate at the new Joo Koon Bus Interchange.
In tandem with the opening of the Tuas West Extension on the East-West Line, Bus Service 258 was amended to ply Pioneer Rd North & Jalan Ahmad Ibrahim to replace lost sectors of Bus Service 256 from 18 Jun 2017. In addition, it no longer serves Boon Lay Bus Interchange by looping at Jurong West Street 64.
