The Interchange

Yio Chu Kang Bus Interchange is a bus station located in the residential town of Ang Mo Kio. Connecting with Yio Chu Kang MRT Station along the North South MRT Line, the interchange is a transport node for commuters heading in and out of town, allowing for convenient transfers between the rail network and the bus services at the interchange.

The interchange has a single vehicular concourse area with an entrance along Ang Mo Kio Avenue 8 and exit along Ang Mo Kio Avenue 6.

The interchange concourse has pedestrian entrance/exits located on all sides. A pair of bus stops along Ang Mo Kio Avenue 6 allows for easy transfer to passing-by bus services that do not call at the interchange. All berths at the interchange are wheelchair-accessible.

Historical Background

To alleviate overcrowding in Ang Mo Kio Town Centre and provide an alternate terminating point for buses north of the expanding Ang Mo Kio New Town, a bus terminal was built near Yio Chu Kang MRT station with the intention of catering to a handful of bus services.

While the MRT station opened on 7 November 1987, Yio Chu Kang Bus Terminal opened on 13 December 1987 when Trans-Island Bus Service (TIBS) introduced the temporary Service SS1 to Yishun, a service which would be withdrawn the following year after the North South Line reached Yishun. Several bus services were added to the bus terminal over the following years.

In August 2013, the terminal was renamed to Yio Chu Kang Bus Interchange.


Main Article: Expansion of Yio Chu Kang Bus Interchange

As part of works to transform Yio Chu Kang Bus Interchange into a full-fledged bus interchange, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) has constructed a new interchange concourse north of Yio Chu Kang MRT station, featuring more commuter facilities and bus parking lots. The original interchange, which occupies 4,730 square meters, was expanded by more than 3 times to around 16,200 square meters after expansion works are completed.

Note: In March 2018, The area of Yio Chu Kang Bus Interchange was reported to be 6,849 square meters by an article on the Yio Chu Kang Expansion on 8World, as per figures supplied by the LTA then. This figure was revised to 4,730 square meters in a LTA press release on 16 October 2019.

Phase 1 of the opening of Yio Chu Kang Bus Interchange expansion opened on 13 October 2019, with the relocation of the then existing Berth B1 into the new concourse.

While the location of the alighting berths would not change, boarding berths were relocated to the new concourse. Renovation work to existing parts of Yio Chu Kang Bus Interchange were carried out after the opening of the interchange expansion.

Remaining bus services at the existing bus interchange were relocated to the expansion on Sunday, 17 November 2019.

Interchange facilities, which were undergoing outfitting works between October to December 2019, were cordoned off from the passenger concourse with construction hoarding. Each berth is wheelchair-accessible.

    once Ang Mo Kio depot closes services 265/268 should amend to YCK Int

    Service 45 could extend to Sengkang West Depot via Ang Mo Kio North, Yio Chu Kang Road

    I think Bus Services 45 & 268 can be amended here since the extra distance to AMDEP is not much use. The lost sectors of bus 268 can be covered by bus 265 route amendment and Trunk 70/70M.

    Weird that bus 72B has its own berth slot. Should share it with 72/72A

  • 20 March 2021 at 12:26 PM

    Does the interchange have a service guide rack?

    • 8 October 2021 at 7:44 AM
