Lorong 1 Geylang Bus Terminal (Chinese: 芽笼1巷巴士终站) is a bus terminal located in Kallang, at its eastern border with Geylang. Named after the road it is adjacent to, it sits opposite the Kallang MRT Station across Sims Avenue.
The terminal design is based on one whereby a small boarding and alighting area and terminal office are located within space largely reserved for bus parking space, as opposed to contemporary interchanges where terminal space dominate. Its location just outside the central restricted zone has part of early bus routings aimed at reducing congestion in the central area by siting terminals at the fringes instead of having a large number of bus routes congregating in downtown terminals. With the introduction of the Park and ride scheme, the terminal was selected as a designated transfer point for car drivers to park their vehicles and transfer to buses or the MRT.
