Woodlands Bus Park is a bus park under SMRT Buses. Located along North Coast Avenue, it serves as an additional parking area for SMRT’s Woodlands Bus Depot, and fully relies on Woodlands Depot for washing, refuelling and maintenance works.
|Name||Woodlands Bus Park / 兀兰巴士泊车场|
|Address||10 North Coast Avenue, Singapore 737665|
|BCM Route Package||Woodlands Bus Package|
|Type||Bus park / open-air|
|Abbreviation||WLBP / WPDEP|
|Associated with||Woodlands Bus Depot|
Woodlands Bus Park was built to supplement the limited parking space at Woodlands Depot, and to accommodate additional buses under the Bus Services Enhancement Programme (BSEP). Previously, buses were parked overnight at Sembawang, Woodlands and Bukit Panjang Bus Interchanges.
Completed in 2012, the bus park was handed over to SMRT on 21 January 2013 and formally began operations in February 2013. It is sometimes abbreviated as WLBP or WPDEP. All bus washing, refuelling, maintenance and other engineering works are carried out at Woodlands Bus Depot. As a result, SMRT managed to cut down on the extensive use of bus interchanges for overnight parking.
Contract RD248 for the Proposed Bus Park at Woodlands was awarded to Huationg Contractor Pte Ltd for S$3.8 million in June 2012.
Buses garaged at the depot are part of Woodlands Bus Package and Choa Chu Kang-Bukit Panjang Bus Package.

The only woodlands service that park here is a few 962 and full 964 buses.
I dont understand why 180 & 188e park here..180 can park at Bulim.
With the Mandai transition completed,SMRTB can make use of the 245 parking lots here for some Woodlands and Gali Batu bus service.
145 lots for Bt Panjang service:176,970,972/M,973,975 & 979.
100 lots for Woodlands service:960,961,962 & 964.
Kranji can stop the overnight parking at Ulu Pandan.
Hopefully Sembawang-Yishun buses can start parking at Mandai and also a few of Woodlands trunk service can co-share parking there.Bukit Panjang service can parking here.Ulu Pandan can free up some spaces.
Woodlands Bus Park originally got 247 designated lots,4 lots take for containers,2 for car park and 2 for miscellaneous leaving 239 lots and 21 training bus use the lots also…At night almost 250 buses park there including spare buses for 167/167e/169/858/859/963/965/966/969
Come to think of it,LTA should built temp bus park before Woodlands Rd for Kranji thus eliminating to share parking at Bulim & Ulu Pandan until Gali Batu Depot is ready..260 lots better
Amdep park most of their Woodlands & Sembawang service here resulting many Woodlands Depot bus service to overnight parking @ Woodlands Temporary Interchange.
When Mandai depot open for overnight parking later,Bukit Panjang service that park @ Ulu Pandan Depot will park here.Woodlands Temp Int will stay for Wldep overnight parking when Woodlands ITH is open later.
