Punggol Temporary Bus Interchange is a temporary bus interchange in Punggol New Town, located adjacent to the Punggol MRT/LRT Station. It was built to allow for easy dismantling when the site is redeveloped as part of a major commercial development when Punggol New Town is more developed.
There will be a New Punggol Bus Interchange Expansion which is scheduled to open in the third quarter of 2015.
This interchange there is no direct routes from Punggol goes to Orchard, Central Areas or Dhoby Ghaut.
With the opening of the interchange, Service 83, plying between Sengkang and Punggol, was amended to terminate here, instead of the pair of bus-stops below Punggol. Also, Punggol Road End Bus Terminal closed. The terminal's only bus route, Service 82, was amended to loop at the former terminal. Service 3 was extended from its original looping point at Pasir Ris Street 71 to provide direct links between Punggol and the new towns of Pasir Ris and Tampines, while Service 62 and Service 136 were extended from the former Hougang South Bus Interchange and Upper Serangoon Road to this interchange respectively.
As time went by, new services, Service 34, 43, and 85 were introduced to link Punggol to Singapore Changi Airport, Upper East Coast Bus Terminal and Yishun Bus Interchange respectively. When the Serangoon Bus Interchange was relocated, Service 82 was amended to terminate at this interchange and loop at Serangoon Central and no longer serves Punggol Point. With the amendment, a new service, Service 84 was introduced to replace the amended Service 82 to loop at Punggol Point.
On 21 October 2012, under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP), Service 119 was extended to terminate at Punggol Bus Interchange instead of terminating at Sengkang Bus Interchange, calling at an additional four pairs of bus stops.
On 16 December 2012, under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP), Service 50 was introduced. The service plies between Punggol and Bishan Bus Interchange.
