Five More New Peak Period Short Services; Less Crowding, Shorter Waiting Times for Commuters on Feeder Services from Third Quarter 2014

News Releases 23 Dec 2013 Peak Period Short Services (PPSS) Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP)

Private bus operators invited to submit cost proposals to operate services  

1.         Five additional Peak Period Short Services (PPSS) will be introduced progressively from third quarter of 2014 to bring Choa Chu Kang, Pasir Ris, and Tampines residents to nearby MRT stations and bus interchanges during peak periods. These services will overlay on current feeder bus services 291, 293, 307, 358, and 359 to alleviate crowding, reduce waiting times and improve reliability during peak hours, by adding at least five more bus trips per hour during the weekday morning and evening peak periods on top of the existing feeder bus services. 

2.         The Land Transport Authority has called a tender today to invite private bus operators to submit their cost proposals to operate these five new additional short bus services as part of the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP). This will be the second tranche of PPSS to be tendered, bringing the number of such short bus services to be implemented to 10. This initiative is in line with the Ministry of Transport’s announcement at the Committee of Supply 2013 to tap on the resources of private bus operators to run shorter bus services to augment the resources of the PTOs. Successful operators will have to apply for bus service licences from the Public Transport Council (PTC), which regulates bus services.
