Currently, these five stretches of normal bus lanes operate only during peak hours on weekdays. The full-day bus lane scheme operates from 7.30am to 8pm on all weekdays and Saturdays, except public holidays.
The extension of the full-day bus lane scheme to these five stretches is in line with the Land Transport Master Plan to expand such bus lanes to allow buses to move more quickly, thus helping to make public transport a choice mode.
With the five new stretches, the total length of full day bus lanes will total 20 km.
