BackgroundEdit

Even before the official opening of the Changi Airport on 1 July 1981, SBS had commenced its operation of a special set of Airport services, known as CAS (Changi Airport Service) to serve the airport workers. The six CAS Services were introduced in stages between February and June 1981.

Subsequently in June 1981, 5 more services, jointly operated by SSB and Scheme B operators came upon the scene. These operators however have decided to cease their operation from 25 June '83.

As a socially responsible and major provider of public transport, SBS is duty-bound to ensure that the vital transport needs of the airport staff and other Airport-bound passengers are continuously catered for despite the cessation of the five SSB/Scheme B Services.

The takeover is a reaffirmation of our commitment to our commuting public. It also attests to the fact that SBS has won the confidence of its commuting public through the provision of a high level of service, sustained in spite of the non-lucrative nature of Airport services.

The SBS Bus PlanEdit

The new Changi Airport Bus Plan consists of 5 services operated with 65 buses. Two are existing services with slightly amended routes whilst the other three are new services.

Under the Plan, 14 Scheme B buses now operating on the SSB services will be integrated into the new Services 24, 57 and 149.

The five services are:

Service 9 (Existing)
The route of this Service currently running from Geylang Fringe Car Park to Changi Point remains the same except that it will now terminate at the Cargo Complex instead of Changi Point. It replaces Services 391 and 395 to the Cargo Complex.

Service 24 (New)
This Service replace existing Service 392 from Somapah, Service 394 from Bedok and SSB Service 727 from Ang Mo Kio.

Service 57 (New)
This Service operates the same route as SSB Service 757 which runs from Queenstown to PTB except that its route is slightly amended to avoid the Central Business District and join the East Coast Parkway after Keppel Road.

Because of the low passenger demand for this route as evident in surveys conducted earlier, this service will operate only specific trips during the peaks hours in the peak direction.

Service 149 (New)
This service, which runs from Toa Payoh to PTB, will replace SSB Service 737 from Toa Payoh and SSB Service 747 from Kallang Bahru.

Service 390 (Existing)
This service currently running between Queen Street and the PTB will be extended to Orchard Road to serve a larger number of passengers.
