    Why is the timing for the first bus 668 to town in the morning getting later and later?? Because of that, it got crowded and ended up no available seating!

    Pls solve this problem soon.

      Hi Alice,

      There are no City Direct services to Pasir Panjang. Also, there is no Premium service from AMK Ave 3 to Pasir Panjang that will reach before 8am.

      Regards,

    Boarded the 7:30am bus successfully (reached Block 564 bus stop) at 7:50am.
    Pleasant and smooth ride.
    Thank you for rolling out this new service route.
