Never Say #bojio Again: MakanBus Brings You To All The Food Places You’re Sure To Love

Let’s be honest, the best food in Singapore aren’t always very accessible. While you can find some local eats near MRTs or near the city,we all know the best local food are scattered all over our sunny island. Unfortunately for those of us who don’t have access to a car, it can be pretty difficult to get to these places.

Not anymore.

Tourists and Singaporeans alike can now explore the heartlands and try some famous local eats. The MakanBus, which starts operation today ferries passengers to the doors of eateries in housing estates such as Toa Poayoh and Ang Mo Kio. Embracing a hop-on-hop-off model, MakanBus makes 10 stops, starting at Orchard Gateway to Balestier Road, Tai Gin Road, Upper Thomson Road, Sin Ming Avenue, Ang Mo Kio Central, Bishan Street 13, Toa Payoh Lorong 8 and Toa Payoh Central.

Here’s how it works:

Passengers can purchase tickets on their website, for a flat fee of $28. Commuters can hop on and off the bus which runs from 11am to 7.30pm at 20 minute intervals. Passengers will also be given a map listing more than 20 eateries, most within walking distance from the pick up/drop off points.

While the MakanBus may only have one route right now, they plan to offer another route exploring the eastern side of Singapore (Yes! There are so many amazing eats in the East!) as well themed routes for special occasions such as Hari Raya.

MakanBus is definitely a game changer for us foodies who want to explore hidden food joints in the heartlands yet have no access to a car. What’s great about the MakanBus is the flexibility it provides, something other food tours aren’t able to. As a local Singaporean, I am definitely intrigued by the MakanBus and I’m pretty sure I can rope in a few of my friends to test it out!
