In the Singapore, intercity bus service is an often economical way to travel between cities, and a very efficient way when traveling between cities near one another. Most intercity bus services use the system for the majority of their routes, thereby taking the fastest route they possibly can.


Intercity and rural bus transportation includes:

• Intercity Highway Transport, Special Service

• Intercity and Rural Bus Transportation

• Intercity bus lines

• Interstate bus lines

• Interurban bus lines

Advantages Travel By Buses[edit]

Buses can be an interesting way to see the country. Travel is made as comfortable as possible by providing a restroom on the bus (with no running water), comfortable seats, and sometimes small tables for eating, playing cards, or other activities. Some bus companies also show movies on board. Some companies offer wi-fi on board that allow for the connection of a laptop, iPad, or other internet-capable device, and some have power outlets that allow for these devices to be powered and charged.

Rules In The Buses[edit]

Generally, rules that must be followed on board buses are few and are very basic and to most are common sense. The basic rule is no smoking. Some buses have signs banning eating and drinking, but this is rarely enforced, and passengers who do eat and drink should do their best to clean up after themselves. As common courtesy, noise levels from conversation on cell phones and with other passengers should be kept low. Unlike air travel, security checks are rare, and there are seldom inspections for 'banned' items, though items that are obvious hazards such as firearms may not be brought on board. Each company has its own guidelines regarding live animals.
