Sims Place Bus Terminal (Chinese: 沈氏坊巴士终站) is a bus terminal located at the eastern part of Singapore, near Aljunied. The terminal is now one of the few surviving terminals of the 1970s era in which it was common for terminals to be built along the roadside with only a small booth for bus captains to report to when completing their duties.

History[edit]

The terminal was one of the few bus terminals in Singapore used to have only one bus service, 64, before service 134 was introduced on 20 March 2016. The bus terminal is also situated near a market and several flats and it provides the residents living there a link to MacPherson, Geylang East, Paya Lebar, Marine Parade, Bendemeer and Tiong Bahru. Service 20 formerly starts from here & looping at St. Wilfred Rd.
