Service 34 is a trunk route running from Punggol and looping at Changi Airport, going via Tampines. It has an express sector between Punggol Road and Tampines Ave 10, and between Tampines Ave 7 and Changi Airport along the Tampines Expressway (TPE).

With strong demand between Punggol and Tampines Central, Service 34A plies the sector during the morning peak hours and empty buses are added to the route from Tampines Central towards Punggol during evening peak hours.

Upon Tower Transit takeover, service 34 was extended to 11.00pm at nights, to match the IKEA Tampines and Tampines Retail Park together with Waterway Point.

HistoryEdit

Originally Tampines Avenue 5 (Tampines Swimming Pool) - Tampines Avenue 2 (Blk 141) since January 2009.

Later extended to Tampines Block 518C in January 2014.

Later extended to Changi Airport in December 2015, IKEA Tampines in January 2016 and finally to Punggol in February 2016.

Upon being re-tendered, in 8 November 2014, the route was awarded to Hougang North garage under the Metroline contract from Arriva Tampines, upon the launch on 31 July 2005.

Service 34 uses Scania K230UBs and Mercedes-Benz O530 Citaros. Additional Mercedes-Benz O530 Citaros are deployed under this scheme. In addition, a double decker was deployed since December 2015.

It was being awarded to Tower Transit on 3 September 2016 as part of the novation.

Changi Airport Passenger Terminal Buildings (PTB) have their bus stops integrated with the basement levels, which also serves as the cargo loading and unloading bay. Security checks for any unattended or suspicious articles are carried out before each bus goes to one of the three PTBs.
