Bus Service RWS88 was a shuttle route between Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) on Sentosa Island and City Hall on the mainland. The route links the transport node of City Hall (with MRT and plenty of bus connections) with Resorts World Sentosa, operating with high frequencies and affordable fares. The route charges a flat fare of $2.00, inclusive of the Sentosa admission fee.

Introduced on Saturday, 30 January 2010, as one of three proposed RWS shuttle services by SMRT Buses, the route provided a direct connection between City Hall MRT station and the new Integrated Resort (IR). However, with the availability of alternative bus services and the convenient transfer to the Sentosa Express monorail, demand for the shuttle service failed to materialise, unlike the other RWS shuttle service RWS8.

The shuttle service was withdrawn from Monday, 27 December 2010, almost a year since its initial launch. The last day of service was on Sunday, 26 December 2010.


A flat fare of $2.00 for inbound trips towards RWS (inclusive of Sentosa admission charges) and outbound trips from RWS, paid by EZ-Link Card or Cash.
Concessionary fares were not applicable to this service.
RWS Staff Members travel for free by flashing their Staff Pass to the driver upon boarding the bus.
