Notice: This service has been withdrawn without notice in February 2015.
Changi Airport Terminal 1 Carpark Shuttle is a withdrawn shuttle bus service connecting Terminal 1 (Arrival Pick Up) to Terminal 2 Departure Hall and the new Terminal 1 Car Park (formerly Car Park 2B). The shuttle was introduced to facilitate the closure of the T1 Car Park for the redevelopment of the existing site. It was withdrawn without notice in February 2015 due to poor demand, as this service entirely duplicates the Skytrain service serving T1 and T2.

With the relocation of the T1 Car Park to T2, measures were put in place to facilitate the movement of airport users between the two terminals. In addition to the existing Skytrain service, Changi Airport Group would introduce a free shuttle bus service to connect T1 and T2, in which the trial started on Friday, 17 October 2014 till Tuesday, 21 October 2014. The shuttle service was reintroduced on 12 Nov 2014 when the T1 open air carpark is permanently closed for the construction of Project Jewel @ Changi.
The shuttle service operated daily at 5 minute intervals, with convenient boarding and alighting points at T1 (Arrival Pick Up) and T2 (Departure Hall). It will also alleviate loading on the Skytrain between Terminal 1 and 2.
