Jump to: navigation, search

On 24th January 1988, the first bus service rationalisation was conducted in conjunction with the opening of the North-South and East-West Lines of the MRT network.

These service changes were planned by SBS & TIBS before TransitLink took over the rationalisation exercise to further integrate the public transport system on 16th December 1990.
