Relocated Jurong East Bus Interchange

The Relocated Jurong East Bus Interchange is an interim bus interchange located at Jurong East Central, serving the town of Jurong East. As part of the Jurong Regional Centre, it connects to many public amenities such as Jurong East MRT Station, JCube, Jurong Regional Library, Westgate, JEM and Jurong Community Hospital / Ng Teng Fong General Hospital.

The relocated interchange, which opens on 6 December 2020, replaces the first Jurong East Temporary Bus Interchange (2011 – 2020) located beside Jurong East MRT station, making it the second temporary interchange in Jurong East, despite LTA having formally dropped the ‘temporary’ designation. The site of the first interim interchange, which lasted nine years, would be demolished to make way for the Jurong Region Line station and a future Integrated Transport Hub (ITH) projected for completion in 2027.

With the relocation of the bus interchange on 6 December 2020, several bus service amendments will take place.

Summary of bus amendments:

  • All bus services (except Services 78, 79, CW3, CW4, CW4S) relocated to new temporary bus interchange
  • Bus Service 78 amended to start/end at Jurong Gateway Road, without entering the new temporary bus interchange
  • Bus Service 79 amended to Boon Lay – Jurong Gateway Road (Loop)
  • Bus Services 97, 97e, 197 and 333 to skip Jurong East Central
  • Causeway Link cross-border services CW3, CW4, CW4S amended to Venture Drive
  • New bus stop (28199 – Opp JEM) along Jurong Gateway Road for Service 333
  • Alighting-only bus stop (28211 – bef Jurong East Station) along Jurong Gateway Road for bus services entering Jurong East Temp Int from the west (Services 41, 51, 52, 78, 98/98M, 105, 143/143M, 183, 334, 335)

The interchange:

Jurong East Bus Interchange is located in the residential town of Jurong East, bordered by Jurong Town Hall Road, Jurong East Street 12,
Jurong Gateway Road and Jurong East Central 1. Connecting with Jurong East MRT Station along the North South Line and East West Line, the interchange is a transport node for commuters heading in and out of residential estates within Jurong East, as well as the Penjuru and Toh Guan industrial areas, allowing for convenient transfers between the rail network and the many bus services at the interchange.

The relocated Jurong East Temporary Interchange opened on 6 December 2020, having moved from the first temporary interchange. The interchange has a single vehicular concourse area with a combined entrance/exit leading to a signalized junction along Jurong Gateway Road. The interchange concourse offers a linear alighting berth for 4 buses, and seven sawtooth boarding berths. All berths at the interchange are wheelchair-accessible. There are 42 parking lots for buses in the interchange.

  • Interchange Offices / Passenger Service Offices (SBS Transit & Tower Transit)

The LTA has touted improvements that benefit both commuters and public transport workers, such as more spacious boarding points at each of the seven berths and graduated kerb edges to facilitate boarding for passengers in wheelchairs. A bus berth availability system is installed near the bus park, signalling to bus captains when their berths are available, mitigating the risk of congestion within the smaller interchange space. In addition, high-volume low-speed fans have also been installed at the concourse area for better air circulation.

There are also more facilities that cater to the needs of the elderly, less mobile and families with young children, including four barrier-free alighting areas, priority queue zones with seats, a nursing room and barrier-free toilets. 64 bicycle parking lots are available for those who cycle.

The interchange also comes with upgraded facilities for public transport workers such as an air-conditioned staff canteen, dedicated staff toilets and a staff lounge.
