(Defunct) SBS Transit Stadium Direct Services

Introduction:

SBS Transit introduced the Stadium Direct series from 23 December 2005, aimed at concert goers, football enthusiasts & food lovers. Operating after major events at Singapore Indoor Stadium and National Stadium, these four unidirectional bus services will provide a direct link to the HDB heartlands of Ang Mo Kio, Bedok, Boon Lay & Tampines. The nearby Kallang Theatre and Kallang Leisure Park also benefit from the service.

Originally scheduled for three days of operation (23 Dec, Very A-Do Live in Singapore / 14 Jan, Stefanie Sun Live in Singapore / 24 Jan, Backstreet Boys “Never Gone Tour”), Stadium Direct services continued to operate regularly after various concerts and sporting events until their withdrawal, with the last day of service on 17 April 2010.

Stadium Direct Services charge a fare of $2 for Adults and $1 for Child/Student/Senior Citizens, regardless of ez-link or cash payment. E-stamps, transfer rebates and concessionary travel were not applicable on Stadium Direct Services.

Operational Details:

After major events, buses from each Stadium Direct route would pick up passengers simultaneously from the bus stop along Stadium Walk, outside Kallang Theatre, and depart once the bus is full. About two to three buses per service will be deployed, subject to demand. Information posters would be placed at terminating interchanges and various en-route bus stops prior to various Stadium events, informing commuters that the service would be available.

Following the proposed demolition of the former National Stadium and the road closures in the vicinity, all four Stadium Direct Services were formally withdrawn on 1 September 2010. However, their last day of operation was on 17 April 2010, after which there were no other events ending at such late hours.
