History
Opened 23 October 1999

Woodlands Bus Depot is an SMRT Buses bus depot located in Woodlands, Singapore.

Buses deployed to Woolands Bus Depot are also interchangeable with Woodlands Bus Park. It handles cross-border service 950.

History[edit]

Land for the depot was acquired by TIBS in 1997 for the construction of the new bus depot in view of overcrowding at Ang Mo Kio and Kranji. Construction began in 1997 and fully completed on 23 October 1999, with some services like 190 and 960 moved over. The bus workshop occupies the ground floor, while the upper floor handles additional parking space.

Due to a chronic shortage of space, Woodlands Bus Park was opened in 2013, which was originally suffixed 'WLBP', later renamed to 'WPDEP' to reduce overcrowding at the depot. SMRT has cut down on extensive use of bus interchanges for overnight parking at Woodlands Regional Bus Interchange.[1]
