First Day of Operations

To commemorate the launch of Service 805, Members of Parliament for Nee Soon GRC, Dr Faishal Ibrahim and Dr Lee Bee Wah, took a short ride on the route, while also giving out flyers and valentines hearts in the spirit of Valentines Day. Despite a full fleet of rigid Mercedes-Benz Citaro buses, a MAN A22 Bus, SMB3165Z, was dispatched for one special departure trip from Yishun to carry the MPs and their party around.

Service 805 is unique being the first BSEP service to debut with a full fleet of non-BSEP buses.

    I hope 805 can use BSEP buses as Ang Mo Kio has enough BSEP bus for it.
