Toa Payoh Bus Interchange is located in Toa Payoh, Singapore. It is the first air-conditioned bus interchange in the country, which was completed in 2002 and officially opened by then Transport Minister, Yeo Cheow Tong, on 19 May 2002. The bus interchange has only services of SBS Transit and is managed by the company itself. It has a direct connection from the bus interchange to the Toa Payoh MRT Station on the North South Line.

History of Bus InterchangeEdit

Relocation of Bus Interchange in 1999Edit

When the old Toa Payoh Bus Interchange was demolished in 1999 to make way for the building of HDB Hub, the new and current headquarters of the Housing and Development Board of Singapore, the interchange's operator, SBS Transit, moved its bus operations to a temporary location opposite its original site located at Toa Payoh Town Park, which was upgraded after the temporary interchange was demolished.

Bus Interchange currently in HDB HubEdit

SBS Transit, the operator of Bus Interchange, ended bus operations to the Temporary Bus Interchange in 19 May 2002 and moved its services back to the bus interchange's original site, which has a direct connection to the MRT Station below it. It is notably the first bus interchange in Singapore to be fully air-conditioned and it is housed within the building of HDB Hub.

Anti-Terrorism ExerciseEdit

This bus interchange participated in the Exercise Northstar V on January 8, 2006.

Bomb HoaxEdit

Similar to other bomb hoaxes at Hougang MRT Station and Jurong East MRT Station, 21-year-old Lin Zhenghuang was sentenced to 3 months in jail on Feb 7 2007 and fined S$4000 for eight charges under the Computer Misuse Act. The charges were for 'mooching' or illegally tapping into his neighbour's unsecured wireless internet network and posting a bomb hoax on an online forum of popular technology site HardwareZone. Lin previously pleaded guilty to one charge under the Telecommunications Act for transmitting a false message and nine charges under the Computer Misuse Act. The accused posted a message on July 22 2006, reporting that there had been a bomb attack at Toa Payoh Bus Interchange. [1] Template:-
