SMRT to start bus services at Bukit Panjang Integrated Transport Hub on Sept 4
THE Bukit Panjang Integrated Transport Hub (BPITH) - the first Integrated Transport Hub run by SMRT Buses - will begin serving passengers on Sept 4, 2017.
SMRT Corporation said on Tuesday that the BPITH will improve the connectivity and travel experience for residents and visitors to Bukit Panjang, and make the transfer between bus services to the Bukit Panjang LRT and the Downtown MRT line more convenient.
Commuters will be served by interactive display panels, allowing them to not only get bus service information, but also locality maps for better way finding and updates on various community events, said SMRT.
An electronic feedback system will also allow commuters to alert cleaners immediately if a toilet requires cleaning in between fixed cleaning times.
SMRT added that the traffic management system installed at BPITH is a first for the company. It enhances safety by detecting the movement of vehicles and increases bus captains' visual awareness of bus movements within the bus parking area.
