Written Reply by Minister for Transport Khaw Boon Wan to Parliamentary Question on High Covered Shelter for Boarding and Alighting of Passengers at Bus Stops

06 Feb 2018 In Parliament

Mr Gan Thiam Poh asked the Minister for Transport whether there is a plan to enhance existing bus stops to include a high cover of 4.5 metres and above that extends into the bus bay so as to provide a covered shelter for boarding and alighting of passengers.

Reply by Minister for Transport Khaw Boon Wan:

1.     Out of a total of 4,900 bus stops in Singapore, there are currently 74 which have cantilever shelters.  It is not cost effective to build all bus stops with such shelters and we have given priority to bus stops which are heavily used, especially those connected to MRT stations.  More than a quarter of the bus stops at MRT stations have cantilever shelters. Where space permits, more such shelters will be built for heavily utilised bus-stops.
