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.

Opening on 8 September 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.

History:

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 (Old) 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 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.

    2 lots for 1 service ITH and good luck to the BCs finding parking during peak hours

      They might convert some bendy lots to 2x rigid bus lots to ease the crunch (since Yishun Int services don’t use bendies that often nowadays)

        Well there is a slight difference… Last minute changes perhaps?

        Nevertheless we will have to wait for the ITH to open to see who is right or wrong

        B4 and B5 was changed. Originally, service 856 was on B5 while service 857 was on B4. Due to change of plan, 856 will be on B4, while service 857 will be on B5.
