Route History

Feeder Service 945 serves residential blocks, schools and public amenities along Bukit Batok East Ave 5, Bukit Batok St 52, Bukit Batok West Ave 5 and Bukit Batok West Ave 4, connecting them to transport nodes at Bukit Batok Bus Interchange, Bukit Gombak MRT station and Bukit Batok MRT station. Its primary area of service is Bukit Batok Neighbourhoods 3, 4 and 5.

The route serves schools such as Hillgrove Secondary School, Lianhua Primary School, Swiss Cottage Secondary School and St. Anthony’s Primary School. It also serves community amenities such as Bukit Gombak Stadium, Bukit Batok Town Park (Little Guilin) and HomeTeamNS @ Bukit Batok.

Formerly a Singapore Bus Service (SBS) route known as Service 365, it was transferred to Trans-Island Bus Service (TIBS) in 2000 when areas of responsibility were exchanged between SBS and TIBS, which has since been re-branded to SMRT. The route was later renumbered to Service 945. High capacity double-deck / articulated buses are not deployed on a daily basis due to moderate daily demand from residents.

During Eves of Public Holidays, last bus timings are extended to complement the extension of train operating hours.

Fare: Fares for Feeder Services are capped at 3.2km. Refer to Fare Table.
