Service 371 is the first bus service to ply Rivervale Crescent, providing residents of the new flats in the area a direct bus service to Sengkang MRT Station. It also provides residents of Compassvale and Rivervale with greater connectivity to Sengkang MRT Station, along with other amenities in the neighborhood. By complimenting the Sengkang LRT (West Loop) and existing bus lines, the service provides a travel alternative for commuters who relied various other bus services to and from Sengkang MRT. This is the nineteenth bus service to be introduced under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP), as well as the second feeder service.
The service loops at Rivervale Crescent, a road not served by existing bus routes, despite being in very close proximity to Rumbia LRT station along the Sengkang LRT. Despite this, it compliments the LRT in the Rivervale area which does not have direct bus services to Sengkang, also benefiting residents living further away from the area.
With a route length of less than 5km, service 371 was the shortest BSEP route to be introduced at its point of introduction, with only 10 enroute stops excluding the bus interchange.
