New Singapore Night Bus Service Will Operate as Late as 2.30am

A New Late-Night Bus Service Is Now Available in Singapore

Buses will be available from 11.30pm till 2.30am!

Travelling home after hours can be hard for night owls and graveyard shift workers without a car, as many public transportation services normally stop operating late at night. Fret not —  starting on 27 Jan 2023, a new late-night bus service featuring two routes will be available in Singapore.

Launched by A&S, a private bus chartering company, the new night bus service will be available every Friday, Saturday, and the eve of public holidays. This is good news for late-night travellers, as Singapore’s previous night bus services like the NightRider and Nite Owl buses ceased operating in 2022.

How much will it be?

The bus service is priced at a flat fee of S$4.50 for EZ-Link card users, and S$5.00 for those who pay with cash. If you’re going with the latter, remember to provide the exact amount to the bus driver, as there is no change available for cash payment.

As of writing, this new Singapore night bus service is not yet wheelchair accessible. Standing is also not allowed. On the eve of public holidays, more trips may be made available, so we recommend checking their Facebook page regularly.
