Revision to Operating Hours of Defunct Services

The operating hours for public bus services in Singapore are frequently reviewed by the Land Transport Authority (LTA). These revisions to operating hours often occur in tandem with route amendments to bus services, as well changes to last train timings at MRT stations (for residential feeder bus services), or simply due to evolving passenger demand on bus services over the years.

This article provides a chronology of revisions to operating hours for defunct trunk / feeder / Express / Parks / Chinatown Direct / Resorts World Sentosa bus services in Singapore.
