Fare Information
Fare Charges regular distance fares

Introduced in 2005, Service 48 spans from East to West, connecting Simpang Bedok, Bedok South, Marine Parade, Bukit Timah, Farrer and Holland Village with the City areas of Bugis, Rochor Canal, Little India and Newton Circus. It incorporates an express sector between Rochor and Tanjong Katong along the East Coast Parkway (ECP).

As a popular link between Marine Parade and Little India with little alternative routes, much of its demand is encountered along that sector. It is the only route between Holland Village and Bukit Timah Road, and has enhanced connectivity for Bedok South Avenue 3 and Simpang Bedok residents ever since its route extension from Upper East Coast Ter to Bedok North Depot in 2011.

Double-deck buses were deployed to Service 48 from 28 November 2016.

    Most likely will be affected by TEL4 rationalisation

    You can still get it from the bus itself

    There’s no way to collect a paper guide for this bus service, simply because it does not terminate at a bus interchange with service guide racks.

    It should start from Buona Vista to Upp East Coast (Like its route on 4 Sep 2011).
