Hougang Central Bus Interchange (Chinese: 后港中心巴士转换站) is a bus interchange serving the town of Hougang. It is located directly above Hougang MRT Station. This bus interchange was planned to be an integrated transport hub.[1]

History[edit]

This bus interchange was officially opened on 17 February 1995 by former cabinet minister Goh Chee Wee, who was then Senior Minister of State for Communications, Trade and Industry to serve all buses around the Hougang Area. Its sister bus interchange, Hougang South Bus Interchange (that is near to Kovan MRT station) ceased operations in 2004 and was converted to Kovan Hub. It is going to be expanded to accommodate about 4 to 5 new bus services.

All buses are split into 2 packages: 74, 74e and 147 under Clementi, with the rest under Sengkang-Hougang.
