Operational hours of Chinatown Direct Bus Services during the Chinese New Year Festive Period

The operating hours of the two Chinatown Direct Bus Services - CT8 and CT18 - will be temporarily changed to better serve commuters' travel needs for the Chinese New Year (CNY) preparations and festivities. CT8 plies between Ang Mo Kio and Chinatown while CT18 between Bedok and Chinatown.

In the lead up to the CNY from 4 to 23 January 2020, their weekend schedules will be adjusted to provide longer service hours for commuters while on weekdays, there is no change to their operating hours.

Similarly, on the eve of the Lunar New Year, 24 January 2020, their first and last bus timings will also be adjusted with their first trips generally starting earlier and their last trips from Chinatown ending later at 1.55am, or about nine hours longer than usual. 

Both services will not be in operation during the CNY public holidays on 25 and 26 January 2020.
On the third day of CNY, they will run later in the evenings by at least three-and-a-half hours compared to their regular end time of close to 5.00pm. 

They will resume their normal schedules from 28 January 2020.
