History:

  • Introduced on 18th December 2006 as a Fast Forward Service from Hougang Central Int to Buona Vista Terminal in the AM Peak direction and from Buona Vista Terminal to Hougang Central Int in the PM Peak direction.
  • 2015 (28 Sep): Designated wheelchair-accessible bus route (WAB)

Service 74e plies between Hougang Central and Buona Vista, connecting Hougang, Ang Mo Kio and Bishan with Clementi Road and Holland Village. By skipping selected stops along its route, it offers quicker travel time as compared to its parent service 74.

The route skips stops along Dunearn/Bukit Timah Road and Dover Road in both directions. It plies the PIE between Clementi Road and Lornie Road, and continues on Commonwealth Avenue West instead of Dover Road. Much of its demand comes from serving the academic belt along Clementi Road.

No boarding and alighting is allowed at Buona Vista Terminal.
