Introduced in 1995 with the opening of Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal, Service 35 is a trunk route serving the Ferry Terminal, and industries at Changi South, Changi East and Airport Logistics Park of Singapore (ALPS) areas as well as Changi Naval Base, with bus connections to Tanah Merah MRT Station and Bedok Town Centre / MRT StationBus Interchange. It is also the only regular bus route to serve Changi Coast Road and Tanah Merah Coast Road.

The route also skips two pairs of bus stops between Tanah Merah MRT and Xilin Avenue. Demand for the route is concentrated around the peak hours owing to high demand from industries at Changi South. From Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal, daily ferry services operate to various destinations in Malaysia and Indonesia.

As Service 35 calls at Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal twice in a single trip, it employs a coloured service plate for easier identification. Red plate will indicate buses heading to ALPS, and white plate indicates buses heading towards Tanah Merah and Bedok.

The Airport Logistics Park is not a restricted area and buses will not be subject to security checks before entering (unlike Changi Airport Basement terminals). The checkpoint at the entrance of ALPS Avenue is used for cargo only.

Operating Hours

Service 35 operates on weekdays from 6.00am to 7.30pm, and on Saturdays from 6.00am to 3.00pm.

At all other times, route variant Service 35M operates, plying Service 35’s old route between Bedok Int and Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal. Service 35M’s operating hours are weekdays from 7.45pm to 11.15pm, Saturdays from 3.15pm to 11.15pm and on Sundays & Public Holidays from 6.00am to 11.15pm.


BSEP Route extension (2014)

Service 35 was extended to serve ALPS Avenue during selected hours from 15 December 2014, with an express sector along Changi Coast Road. The route extension is classified as the 36th new service under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP), as well as the 4th route extension after 119, 11 and 123M.

Prior to the extension of Service 35 to ALPS, the commuting needs of the workers within ALPS were met with a shuttle service during peak hours from/to Tanah Merah MRT Station. Within ALPS, two more bus stops were added by early 2015, in addition to the three stops along ALPS Avenue prior.

Tanah Merah Coast Road extension (2017)

For the construction of Changi Airport Terminal 5, a large section of Changi Coast Road (parallel to Changi Airport’s Runway 02C/20C) was closed. A widened Tanah Merah Coast Road opened to traffic on 22 April 2017 at 1900hrs, linking up with Aviation Park Road via the eastern coastline. Service 35 plies the realigned road twice in a single trip, lengthening each trip by 8 kilometres. Two new pairs of bus stops for Service 35 were also added along Tanah Merah Coast Rd, near Changi Lodge 2 and Changi Naval Base.

    SBS Transit should consider extending the operating hours of Service 35 to at least till 9 or 10pm on weekdays only instead of 730pm as that is the time when most change in shifts occurs between the ground staffs and security personnels there. It’s also necessary as not every company there provides shuttle buses to ferry workers home
