Service BTC operates at a frequency of 30-45 minutes through the day, lower than most other services. While the NextBus app allows students to visualise the live location of the bus, I feel it is still helpful to have an idea of the bus schedule, so students can estimate when to start waiting.
I have compiled a table of departure timings for BTC buses below. In the table, I paired up the trip timings so that you have an idea of the arrival time at Kent Ridge if you board the bus from Bukit Timah. Take note that the departure timings at Kent Vale are subject to traffic conditions and are an approximation; if the bus reaches Kent Vale early it will try to wait for the departure time before leaving.
For passengers at UTown, since the Kent Vale stop comes after UTown on the route, my advice is to be at the UTown bus stop around 15 minutes after the bus leaves OTH. Alternatively, if you have just missed the bus, walk across the bridge to Museum (5 minutes away); you will likely be able to catch the bus there if you reach when the bus is departing Kent Vale.
