Operating hours…
While Express 502A, 502B, 518A and 518B will operate only during the peak hours of weekdays, both the extended Express 502 and Express 518 will operate during the off-peak hours of weekdays, weekends and public holidays. The operating hours of these two express services will be extended to 12 midnight on its return trip from Marina Centre on all days. Passengers may refer to the bus stop plates and our website at www.sbstransit.com.sg for bus arrival time. 

These services will also operate on a concept of flexible routing for the express sectors of their coverage. The flexible routing allows the services to reduce journey time by avoiding areas with heavy congestion. They will instead use other roads which may not be parallel to the parent route.
