From 12 March 2005, nature lovers will find it more convenient to visit Labrador Park.
A new service, Parks 408, will provide commuters with a direct link to the park from HarbourFront interchange. It will ply Seah Im Road, Telok Blangah Road, Labrador Villa Road and loop around at Port Road in Labrador Park, saving visitors an average of 20 mins worth of walking time. More importantly, it will shelter them from the elements given that they no longer need to walk all the way into the park from the bus stop along Pasir Panjang Road.
"With the recent enhancements to Labrador Park including the opening of the tunnels and a restaurant, more visitors can be expected to visit the park. We are happy to launch Parks 408 to help improve accessibility for all nature lovers," said Mr Ong Boon Leong, Chief Operating Officer of SBS Transit.
Delighted by the support, Dr Leong Chee Chiew, Chief Operating Officer of National Parks Board said, "The service from SBS Transit will certainly benefit visitors and enable more people to enjoy Labrador Park and to appreciate its valuable heritage."
To show the synergy between Parks 408 and Labrador Park, the service plate for Parks 408 was specially designed in green and with a butterfly icon.
Parks 408 departs from HarbourFront interchange every 30 mins on weekends and public holidays between 9am and 7pm. Fares for adults are at a flat rate of $1. Concessionary travel and transfer rebate are applicable.
