Eunos Bus Interchange is a bus interchange located in Geylang East, Singapore. It is located and built just outside Eunos MRT Station. It is surrounded by Eunos Road 2, Eunos Crescent and Sims Avenue.

The interchange is designed with traditional Malay roof structure and shape, but using modern materials such as steel beams, similar to that of the Eunos MRT station. It gives a sense of identity to the area as the bus interchange lies close to Geylang and also to honour Eunos Abdullah whom secured 700-hectares of land for the Malay settlements in the early 1900s.

This bus interchange is the sole bus interchange not located in the respective town centre.

History[edit]

The interchange was opened on 9 December 1989, along with the Pasir Ris Bus Interchange.[1]

Bus Contracting Model[edit]

Under the new bus contracting model, all the bus routes buses were split into 4 route packages-76 under Seletar, 93 under Bukit Merah, 61 under Choa Chu Kang-Bukit Panjang Bus Packages and the rest are under Serangoon-Eunos Bus Packages.
