SINGAPORE: The new Jurong Town Hall bus interchange will open later this month with more inclusive public transport facilities and a new bus service, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said on Friday (Nov 3).
The interchange, located along Venture Drive, will open on Nov 26, complementing Jurong East MRT station and Jurong East bus interchange.
GREATER ACCESSIBILITY FOR COMMUTERS
“The bus interchange has been designed to be more accessible for families with young children, seniors, as well as those with mobility challenges,” said LTA, citing the barrier-free access at entrances and dedicated priority queue zones with seating at all boarding berths.
Other facilities include wheelchair-accessible toilets and changing room, a baby care room for parents and a commuter care room for those who require a “quiet and calming space”.
LTA said that these facilities are equipped with auto-sliding doors operated by touchless sensors. The baby care and wheelchair-accessible changing room doors also have audio cue alerts upon opening and closing.
The Jurong Town Hall bus interchange will also have amenities for staff, including dedicated toilets, cleaner’s room and a lounge.
