Defunct Short-Trip Services

This article is dedicated to short-trip services that were discontinued/withdrawn by the public bus operators (prior to the Bus Contracting Model) and the Land Transport Authority (LTA).

For operational short-trip services, refer to our main article on short-trip services. For images of several short-trip services that were recently discontinued, refer to our short-trip service gallery for defunct short-trip services.


The tables below list the short-trip services that have been discontinued over the past 2 decades due to low demand or the introduction of route variants adapted from the defunct short-trip services. To provide better navigation, the defunct short-trip services are divided based on their period of withdrawal.
