New shuttle service to popular market and hawker centre for Tampines residents

Published on May 3, 2014 9:34 AM

Residents in Tampines can now look forward to hearty breakfasts at the popular Tampines Round Market and Hawker Centre without having to squeeze on crowded feeder bus services. Instead, they can take a shuttle bus that will ferry them there for $1 per trip.

It will ply the route between Tampines Street 32 and 33, near Ngee Ann Secondary School; and Tampines Street 11, where both the Tampines Round Market and Hawker Centre and the Tampines Changkat Community Club are located.

The bus will stop eight times along the route, including outside the Tampines Interchange. Payment must be made with an ez-link card.

The shuttle service, run by private operator Republic Express, will operate from 6.30am to 9.30am and 5.30pm to 8.30pm on weekdays. On weekends, the shuttle will operate from 6.30am to 10.30am at 15-minute intervals. It will not operate on weekend nights as there would be low demand.The shuttle will help reduce the congestion of existing feeder bus services in the area, especially bus service 291.
