SINGAPORE — Singapore’s 11th integrated transport hub (ITH), Woodlands ITH, will open on 13 June, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said on Monday (17 May).

The ITH is close to Woodlands North-South Line (NSL) and Woodlands Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) MRT Stations, as well as Woodlands Temporary Bus Interchange.

It is the largest ITH since the first such hub was built in Toa Payoh in 2002, according to an LTA news release.

The ITH has incorporated barrier-free boarding and alighting areas, as well as graduated kerb edges to make boarding and alighting easier for passengers in wheelchairs and parents with strollers. There are also barrier-free toilets, priority queue zones with seats, a nursing room, and a commuter care room for special needs commuters.

From 13 June, 25 out of the 29 bus services that currently operate from Woodlands Temporary Bus Interchange will operate from the ITH. The remaining four services - 925/925M, 950, 961/961M and 965 - will continue to operate from Woodlands Temporary Bus Interchange, which is next to the ITH.

There is no change to the stopping points of all the bus services.
