Tampines Concourse Bus Interchange

Tampines Concourse Bus Interchange, initially referred to as the Tampines Bus Interchange Expansion, is located northwest of the Tampines Town Centre, in close proximity to commercial buildings and residential developments along Tampines Concourse.

Built to expand the capacity of Tampines Bus Interchange, Tampines Concourse Bus Interchange is connected to the existing interchange by a 250-metre barrier-free sheltered walkway.

Tampines Concourse Bus Interchange was officially opened on Sunday, 18 December 2016.

Tampines Concourse Bus Interchange, located roughly 300 metres away from Tampines Bus Interchange, was built to increase the capacity of the existing interchange. It is bordered by Tampines Concourse and Tampines Avenue 7.

The new interchange contains 1 alighting berth and 2 boarding berths with queue lines. The concourse is equipped with interchange offices, driver’s lounge, toilets, and provisions for a canteen, along with other ancillary rooms.

A combined vehicular entrance/exit leads to the Tampines Concourse / Tampines Central 8 junction, with another vehicular entrance along Tampines Avenue 7. Commuters can also access the interchange via Tampines Concourse and Tampines Avenue 7. The interchange is connected to Tampines Bus Interchange and Tampines MRT Station via a 250-metre barrier-free sheltered walkway along Tampines Concourse


With its opening date announced to be on 18 December 2016, the interchange will cater to new Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP) Service 129, as well as bus services 18 and 39 from the existing Tampines Bus Interchange.

A pair of new bus stops were constructed along Tampines Central 1, outside Tampines Bus Interchange. Completed in mid-2016, these bus stops facilitates a shorter walking distance for commuters to the MRT Station for Bus Service 18 which will be amended from Tampines Bus Interchange to Tampines Concourse Bus Interchange.

There are no next-bus departure timings displayed in the Bus Interchange when it first opened.

In late November 2014, LTA formally announced the expansion of Tampines Interchange, with a new annexe constructed at Tampines Concourse, some 100m away from the original Interchange. Covering 10,100 sq m, the Tampines Interchange Extension would consist of 12 bus parking lots, passenger boarding and alighting facilities, a concourse area, offices, a staff lounge and a canteen. A covered walkway will be built to connect commuters from Tampines DTL / EWL MRT Station and the main Tampines Bus Interchange to this extension. It was scheduled to be operational by Q4 2015, later delayed to Q2 2016. The interchange eventually was slated to open on 18 December 2016, over a year later than initially planned.

The land which the new annexe sits on is designated as a reserve site, according to URA’s 2014 Master Plan.

This new extension of Tampines Bus Interchange is not Tampines North Interchange. Tampines North Interchange will be a mixed development located at Tampines Street 62, integrated with a shopping mall and residential complex above.

    The name should change to Tampines Bus interchange 2, while the other one is called Tampines Bus interchange 1.

    Maybe lta should have a new bus service from tampines concourse bus int to tampines bus int expecially for the elderly who does not want to walk to tampines bus int.

    since new bus service 68 will passed here service 68 should called at this bus int instead of tampines central bus int.

    129 should moved to Tampines Central Int.New 290 should start here.292 also can move here

    LTA should consider that to be a terminating point for svc 27A since 27A ends at tampines ave 4(Not close to MRT). Also, this make downroute trips easier and make frequency even better. (Becuz everytime from changi airport to the MRT station, service 27 is always limited standing, even with 27 downroutes)

    • 24 September 2017 at 3:54 PM

      since service 127 & 969 passed here, this 2 service should relocated here, whereas for service 18 & 39 should countinue to called at Tampines Central Bus Int.

        That will lead to a lot of backlash, as 969 is a faster way to get to Yishun than 39 (from Tampines)
