Lost bus terminus – Tuas

The bus terminus located at the most western end of the island is Tuas terminus. Only United Bus Company and later SBS service 175 terminates here. Service 175 was perhaps remembered by many generations of army boys who did their training at SAFTI either as OCS cadets or NCOs. It is the only bus service which plied along the stretch of Upper Jurong Road where SAFTI was located in the early days. Every Saturday afternoon and Sunday night will see all the buses jammed packed with army boys booking out and in of camp.
This is an old map of the area :

The terminus is next to the seaside. The sea surrounding the area was reclaimed and became part of Jurong Industrial Estate. The shore line move way out and the area was bulldozed to built factories. The location of the original terminus is now unknown as the place has changed so much. Some one say that it was located at Tuas Avenue 3, next to the food center :
