Route History

Service 50 connects the residential towns of Bishan, Ang Mo Kio, Sengkang and Punggol. It is the fourth bus service to be introduced under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP), as well as the first to be dual-depot controlled and to use BSEP double-deck buses.

The route enhances connectivity particularly within the Punggol and Sengkang areas, where bus connectivity to outlying estates used to be rather limited.

“From 16 December 2012, the new bus Service 50 operated by SBS Transit, will enhance connectivity for commuters along Ang Mo Kio Avenue 8, Ang Mo Kio Avenue 5, Yio Chu Kang Road, Sengkang West Avenue, Sengkang East Way and Punggol Drive. The new bus route will provide commuters with convenient access to key transport nodes and amenities, such as MRT stations, town centres, schools including the new ITE College Central along Ang Mo Kio Avenue 5, and the Sengkang Sports and Recreation Centre along Sengkang West.”
