Pasir Ris Bus Interchange is a bus interchange located at Pasir Ris in the eastern part of Singapore. It is located off Pasir Ris Drive 3, adjacent to Pasir Ris MRT Station and near White Sands Shopping Centre. This bus interchange also serves as a pick-up/drop-off point for shuttle buses ferrying NSF men heading to the SAF Ferry Terminal for their shuttle ferry to Pulau Tekong.
The interchange was built at a cost of S$2.7 million and was opened on 10 December 1989, along with the Eunos Bus Interchange, which provides bus connections around Pasir Ris estate, and service 403 was the first bus route in Pasir Ris from 1979, which terminates at Tampines Road terminus.
Bus Contracting ModelEdit
Under the new bus contracting model, all the bus routes were split into 4 route packages - 5 under Bukit Merah, 58 under Serangoon-Eunos, 21 and 88 are under Bishan-Toa Payoh and the rest are under the Loyang Bus Package. While the rest is under the Loyang Bus Package, they have all started operations on 18 September 2016.
Redevelopment of Pasir Ris Bus Interchange will start in 2019. A Temporary Bus Interchange will also be completed by 2021, after which the western half of the old bus interchange will be demolished to facilitate the construction of Pasir Ris Integrated Transport Hub and Pasir Ris Rail Turnback, which will be completed by 2027, two years before the Cross Island MRT line starts operations.
