Sengkang residents can look forward to more bus services and improved connectivity with the opening of the new Compassvale Bus Interchange on Sunday, 12 March 2017, which will complement the existing Sengkang Integrated Transport Hub. A sheltered pedestrian overhead bridge and an at-grade crossing will connect the new Compassvale Bus Interchange with the Sengkang Integrated Transport Hub and the Compass One shopping mall.
2 Fully equipped with barrier-free facilities, the new bus interchange will have a dedicated boarding point at each berth and graduated kerb edges to facilitate boarding of passengers in wheelchair.
3 As part of the Land Transport Authority’s efforts to create a more inclusive public transport system, the design of the concourse area has also been enhanced to feature priority queues with seats for the elderly and disabled. To make it more convenient for parents and caregivers travelling with infants and young children, there will be a standalone nursing room with diaper changing amenities and a wash basin.
4 The bus interchange will also feature 40 bicycle racks to facilitate active mobility and enhance first-and-last-mile connectivity.
5 With the opening of the bus interchange, a new Service 374 will be introduced to connect Sengkang West to Sengkang Town Centre / Bus Interchange / MRT. It will also enhance the connectivity to key amenities such as Sengkang Sports Complex, Compass One shopping mall and the future Sengkang General Hospital. Services operating from the existing Sengkang Bus Interchange will not be affected.
6 Apart from Service 374, the new bus interchange will also cater for future bus routes which will be introduced in tandem with the developments in Sengkang.
