City Direct service 660 provides residents of Hougang Neighbourhoods 6 and 9 with greater connectivity to the CBD. The service provides a travel alternative for commuters who relied on the rail network and feeder buses to and from work. The route incorporates an express sector between Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3 and Orchard Road via the CTE.

A pair of new bus stops was be constructed along Hougang Street 91 (outside Hougang Secondary School) for this service.
