Bus Service 992 serves new housing estates in Bukit Batok West and Tengah new town with direct links to Bukit Batok Bus Interchange & MRT Station, as well as other amenities such as Le Quest Shopping Mall and Bukit Batok Polyclinic along the route. It was renumbered from Feeder Service 944 with an extension to Plantation Crescent in Tengah new town on 24 September 2023.

Interim Shuttle Service for Tengah Residents

Residents of Plantation Acres began collecting their keys to their new houses on 29 August 2023. In the interim period before Bus Service 992 is launched, a “Tengah Shuttle Bus” service is provided by the Housing Development Board from 29 Aug 2023 – 30 Sep 2023 for residents to commute between Plantation Acres estate, Blk 440 Bukit Batok West Ave 8 (for amenities such as eating house & supermarket) and Bukit Batok MRT Station.

Additional Stop Served from Launch (Bus Stop 43781)

Bus Stop 43781 – Opp Blk 437A along Bukit Batok Road was slated to be skipped by Service 992 until after the completion of a new Pedestrian Overhead Bridge in 2024 at the location when the routing was officially announced on 6 September 2023.

This is due to the relocation of the bus stop temporarily further down the road as part of the overhead bridge construction, which would make it unsafe for Service 992 to serve this bus stop and then make a right turn to Bukit Batok West Avenue 5.

However, with the feedback from residents, the bus stop relocation works will be minimized such that residents can board and alight from Service 992 at Bus Stop 43781 when Service 992 is launched on 24 September 2023.

This was announced by Dr Amy Khor, Senior Minister of State for Transport and Senior Minister of State for Sustainability and the Environment as well as the Member of Parliament representing Hong Kah North SMC, in a Facebook Post on 13 September 2023.

Routing & Future Extension

Plans for the introduction of Bus Service 992 were included in Travel Guides published by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) in July 2023, which outlined transportation options for residents of the new HDB housing estates. The LTA Travel Guides were updated in August 2023 to reflect the opening of part of Plantation Crescent to be in September 2023 instead of August 2023.

In December 2023 (planned), the route of Service 992 would be extended to serve the Plantation Grange housing estate, via new bus stop 40409 along Tengah Boulevard.

As a designated Transit Priority Corridor, Tengah Link will be designated solely for buses from 27 December 2023 (as per signage along Tengah Link). In the interim period from 27 August 2023, other motorists can also use Tengah Link via the left-in-left-out entrance and exit to Bukit Batok Road.

    Not a good idea to absorb into 944. Now residents of Tengah must take the bus one long U in Bukit Batok and waste extra travelling time instead of going direct? Same issue with 102 amendment in Sengkang West, too few bus services doing too many things.

    By the way, the Tengah Plantation station of the Jurong Region Line is quite short leh. Like suggesting that at least that stretch of road got height limit, and can only accommodate single decker buses.

    • 6 September 2023 at 2:22 PM

      That will be incredibly short sighted if true! All road infra created nowadays should default allow DD

    • 6 September 2023 at 5:20 PM

      The Tower Transit (bus operator of 992) press release indicated a little bit of 992’s future route amendment in their drawing.

      With the Jurong Region Line in the picture, and if only single decker buses can run underneath Tengah Plantation MRT station, 992 could potentially be extended to Jurong West Avenue 3 and absorb 181 in the future, via the new roads in Tengah that are planned to open in the future.

    I wish that 992 come more frequently as tengah estate seem like will have many people staying. Also hope to have buses going to gombak mrt station.

    • 15 August 2023 at 4:12 PM

      I suppose when Bricklands Station is up and running, it will link up service 992 there for residents of Tengah.

  • 31 July 2023 at 2:11 PM

    They can use the remaining sbs plate storage buses for this service. And i hope its under tower transit.

    • 31 July 2023 at 4:28 PM

      SBS a few of them for A&S if they get the night service contract including new service.Eventually will convert to PC/PD plate.

    • 15 August 2023 at 4:16 PM

      My gut feelings is that since 990 & 991 are both under SMRT, 992 has high chance being under the same arm 🤔

      • 19 August 2023 at 8:17 AM

        990 is under tower transit. 992 might also be under tower transit

    • 31 July 2023 at 5:55 PM

      I rather they merge 172 and 992 and extend the bus service via Choa Chu Kang Avenue 3 to Bukit Batok Road to Tengah. Have the service start at Boon Lay instead.

    • 1 August 2023 at 10:11 PM

      I beg to differ…. it does not make sense for 992 and 181 to merge…

      What is the intention of this? To make a long trunk service that connects Boon Lay with Bukit Batok, while passing through Tengah town?

      I do not think LTA will do this when they can route 174 through Tengah town instead of PIE

      • 10 September 2023 at 10:39 AM

        181 will be safe, but 944 is the one that will be merged with 992.
