Changi Airport Passengers Terminal Building (PTB) Bus Terminals (Chinese: 樟宜机场搭客巴士终站) are bus termini located at the basement of each of Singapore Changi Airport's terminals (1, 2 and 3). PTB2 and PTB3 are connected to the Changi Airport MRT Station.

Unlike typical terminals in Singapore, bus services do not stop for extended periods, due to the lack of bus parking facilities. Buses terminating at Changi Airport first make a quick stop at PTB3 terminal, before proceeding to PTB1 and PTB2. At PTB2, bus drivers will get off the bus to update the information about the trip before coming back to the bus, during which the buses will park directly at the sawtooth berths. Passengers can remain on board and need not alight. Due to heightened security concerns, buses can only enter the basements after auxiliary police officers have physically boarded and inspected them.

Some berths are reserved at the terminal for Singapore Police Force and Changi International Airport Services vehicles. The buses looping at the airport terminal are services 24 (from Ang Mo Kio via Sims Avenue and Sims Avenue East), 27 (from Hougang Central via Sengkang, Tampines Avenue 10, 9, 7, 4 and 5), 34 (from Punggol via Tampines Avenues 10, 5, 2 and 7), 53 (from Bishan via Serangoon Central, Hougang Avenue 1 and Pasir Ris), and 858 (from Woodlands via Sembawang and Yishun). Service 36 operate the airport as its origin to the city. Bus services 24, 27 and 53 are operated by SBS Transit while service 858 is operated by SMRT Buses.

Services 34 and 36 was transferred to the Go-Ahead Group from SBS Transit in Q3 2016 as part of the Government Contracting Model – Loyang Bus Package.
