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.
