SBS Transit said on Jul. 19 that 16 bus services would be diverted to alternative routes, in view of road closures for National Day Parade (NDP) rehearsals on Sat, Jul. 24.
The affected services are 10, 14, 16, 56, 57, 70, 70M, 100, 111, 130, 131, 133, 162M, 195, 196 and 502, SBS Transit said on its website.
They will skip bus stops along Nicoll Highway, Marina Bay, as well as bus stops in the vicinity of the Civic District.
Different bus services are affected at different timings on Jul. 19, with the route diversions starting from 11am and stretching up to 11:59pm for some bus services.
Here's the breakdown of the bus stops that will be skipped, and the respective bus services that will be diverted:
Previously, SMRT also announced that some of its bus services would skip a bus stop along Raffles Avenue on Saturdays from Jul. 3 to Jul. 17.These bus services will likely be diverted similarly on Jul. 24, in view of the road closures.
This year's National Day Parade was previously announced to be a "scaled down" affair, with a smaller-than-usual audience to facilitate safe management measures.
The event's 1,200 participants are all fully-vaccinated and will undergo regular testing, organisers announced previously.
There is also only one preview show before the main event.
Spectators over 12 are required to be fully vaccinated before attending the event, if they are eligible for Singapore's national vaccination programme.
There is no public balloting for seats this year, with tickets being offered to selected groups such as teachers, transport workers, and hawkers.
