The first bus service rationalisation with the opening of the North-South Line and East-West Line MRT stations took place on 24th January 1988 to avoid any bus route duplication with the MRT line and were conducted independently by SBS and TIBS.

These service changes were planned by SBS & TIBS before TransitLink took over the rationalisation exercise to integrate the public transport system.
