Yishun Integrated Transport Hub is a Bus Interchange located at Yishun Town Centre, serving residential areas around Yishun and Khatib.
The interchange is the tenth air-conditioned bus interchange in Singapore, integrated within the Northpoint City shopping centre (South Wing) and North Park Residences condominium, while seamlessly connected to Yishun MRT Station. Nearby public amenities include Golden Village Yishun, Nee Soon Sports Centre, Yishun Polyclinic, Yishun Pond Park, and Nee Soon East Community Centre.
Yishun Integrated Transport Hub is projected to open in Year 2019, with SMRT Buses being the anchor operator of Yishun Bus Interchange. With the rollout of the Bus Contracting Model (BCM), the future operator of the Sembawang – Yishun Bus Package will take over as anchor operator of this interchange in Year 2020.
This interchange replaces the Yishun Temporary Bus Interchange which commenced operations on 14 March 2015, to facilitate construction of the current Yishun Integrated Transport Hub.

Yishun Integrated Transport Hub is a bus interchange located in the residential town of Yishun. Connecting with Yishun 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 many bus services at the interchange.
Projected to open in Year 2019, Yishun Bus Interchange will be the tenth Integrated Transport Hub (ITH) to be opened in Singapore, after Toa Payoh in May 2002, Sengkang in Jan 2003, Ang Mo Kio in Apr 2007, Boon Lay in Dec 2009, Serangoon in Sep 2011, Clementi in Nov 2011, Bedok in Nov 2014, Joo Koon in Nov 2015, and Bukit Panjang in Sep 2017. The interchange is integrated within the Northpoint City shopping centre (South Wing) and the North Park Residences condominium, with underpasses leading to Yishun MRT Station across the road. Hence, retail, residential and transportation facilities are combined under one roof.
The interchange has a single vehicular concourse area with two ingress/egress points leading to Yishun Avenue 2. Located at the north end is a Left-In-Left-Out access, and at the South end, a full-movement signalised junction. Pedestrian access will be offered to Yishun Avenue 2 and retail areas of Northpoint City.
The interchange concourse features offices and staff lounges, a Transitlink ticket office and an NTWU Canteen. Commuter facilities such as queue lines at every berth, bus departure timing screens, and priority seats at every berth will be provided.
Before the construction of the Yishun Bus Interchange, Yishun had two roadside bus termini; one at Yishun Avenue 5 and the other at Yishun Central. The former handled feeder services like 800 and 801, while trunk routes 850 and 851 called at the Yishun Central Terminal. In the 1980s, the rising development of Yishun New Town called for a more permanent facility for buses. The Housing and Development Board (HDB), responsible of public works, designed and built a permanent facility between Yishun Avenue 2 and Yishun Central 1. Yishun Bus Interchange opened on 23 August 1987 with five trunk and four feeder bus services, gradually expanding to the 19 bus services today.
In 2003, SBS introduced Service 39 to Yishun, followed by 85 in 2006. In December 2010, private operator Advance Coaches introduced AC7, a cross-border bus route to Johor Bahru.
The last day of operations of Yishun Bus Interchange was on 13 March 2015, following which the Yishun Temporary Bus Interchange was opened to replace the old one. Yishun Bus Interchange was demolished and will be replaced by an air-conditioned Integrated Public Transport Hub, Northpoint City, housing a shopping mall, offices and residential developments by 2019.
Like previous Integrated Transport Hubs, the retail section opened far ahead of the bus interchange. Northpoint City (South Wing) was opened on 18 December 2017 while the interior of the bus interchange had yet to be fitted.
Yishun Bus Interchange was used as a layover point for SBS Transit & SMRT Buses operating on Shuttle 10 during the 3 Day Closure on North South Line for Canberra Track Works in May 2019.
