First bus package up for tender

The first bus package under the new Government Contracting Model (GCM) was put up for tender by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) on Friday at noon.

Both local and foreign bus operators may bid for the right to operate the package, which will include 26 bus routes to be progressively implemented from the second half of 2016.

The 26 bus services will originate from three bus interchanges - Bukit Batok, Clementi and Jurong East - and terminate at five bus interchanges - Bedok, Boon Lay, Marina Centre, Shenton Way, and Toa Payoh.

The buses are to be operated out of the new Bulim Bus Depot located off Jurong West Avenue 2, which can accommodate about 500 buses.
