History

On June 12, 1998, the bus interchange inaugurated as a terminal.

 Developments in the region of Sengkang New Town were still taking place time. The temporary bus interchange situated across from Sengkang Square on April 28, 2001. Currently, all that left of the former bus interchange that once connected Sengkang Square to the HDB estates along Compassvale Road is the main shelter.

Relocation

Sengkang Bus Interchange relocated to Compass One (formerly Compass Point) on January 18, 2003, the same day Sengkang LRT East Loop opened.

It connects transportation networks Sengkang MRT and Sengkang LRT line and station housed under one complex.

Enhancement

The Land Transport Authority built a new air-conditioned tunnel connected to the current air-conditioned boarding spaces in 2007 to increase ventilation at the former non-air-conditioned alighting bays. As the interchange does not have enough parking spaces for more services, LTA formally stated on November 24, 2014, that expand to accommodate future bus services under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP) Scheme. Twelve more parking spaces, boarding and alighting areas, a concourse area, a staff lounge, and a canteen are all included in the development.  The expansion is opposite the current bus interchange along Sengkang Square and is known as Compassvale Bus Interchange (formerly known as Sengkang Bus Interchange Expansion).

Bus schedules

On December 29, 2002, Service 27, which previously ran between Sengkang Bus Interchange and Changi Airport, was expanded to include Hougang Central Bus Interchange. To avoid duplication of the North East Line, which opened in June 2003, Service 85, 501, and 502, which previously ran from Sengkang Bus Interchange to HarbourFront, Marina Centre, and Boon Lay, respectively, were removed or rerouted. Between Sengkang and Hougang Street 21, a section of Service 85’s route was replaced by Service 119.

Feeder service 371 rerouted when the Sengkang LRT’s East loop opened on January 20, 2003, and discontinued after the West loop opened on January 29, 2005. It runs at particular times throughout the day. Then, in 2014, Service 371 was reinstated as part of the Bus Service Enhancement Program to loop at Rivervale Cres.
