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, a drivers’ 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 catered to the new Bus Service 129 then introduced under the BSEP scheme, 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 facilitate a shorter walking distance for commuters to the MRT Station for Bus Service 18 which was amended from Tampines Bus Interchange to Tampines Concourse Bus Interchange.

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 on which the new annexe sits is designated as a reserve site, according to URA’s 2014 Master Plan. This would indicate that the terminal could be cleared for future developments.

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. In November 2022, an interim Tampines North Bus Interchange opened along Tampines North Drive 2.

In February 2023, a second pedestrian access to Tampines Concourse Bus Interchange along Tampines Avenue 7, offering a shortcut for members of the public who wish to walk through the interchange between Sunplaza Park and Tampines Central 7 areas.

    this sucks sia like with the new tampines north int and 18 129 298 moving away then 39 gonna be alone then?!?plus tampines bus int is so damn full so goddamn move some more buses here bruh!or else expand this int so a bunch of new buses can be introduced….

    104 could be here to compassvale int and 128 could be here to bukit batok. Also i think there should be another feeder bus at bt batok int

    With 18, 129 and in the future 298 moving to Tampines North interchange, will this bus interchange be closed too? (They can easily make 39 terminate there too)

    This and Compassvale have been severely underutilized. What’s the point of building these interchanges when only so few bus services get relocated?

    Now that the announcement that 18, 129 and eventually 298 are eventually going to be shifted to Tampines North, and since 46 has been extended to Pasir Ris, I think LTA should shift 39 back to Tampines Interchange. If not what’s the point of this interchange with only one bus service?

    With only 39 left after the 3 other bus routes are relocated to Tampines North bus interchange, it won’t be economical to operate a bus interchange for just 1 bus service.

    39 can return to Tampines Bus Interchange, since 46 will be extended to Pasir Ris Bus Interchange and will nolonger call at Tampines Bus Interchange after the route extension.

    Service 4 and 20 should move to this Tampines Concourse interchange, These 2 services don’t even have proper boarding berths at Tampines Int.
    Might as well utilise the available space at Tamp Concourse Int. Don’t know what SBST is thinking.
