Route History

Service 64 is a trunk route serving much of the central areas. It provides connections for residents of Queenstown, Redhill and Sims Place to the city areas of Little India, Dhoby Ghaut and Clemenceau. The service plies a unique route through the city, via Clemenceau Avenue, Dhoby Ghaut, Little India and Boon Keng.

Owing to its many unique links provided within the city, it remains an important route, however demand is relatively low during offpeak hours.

In December 2016, it was amended to resume plying its original routing via Bencoolen Street after works for Downtown Line Bencoolen Station were completed. (More details here)
