Premium 545 serves housing estates around Bedok North Road and Bedok South Road with bus connections to the CBD, eliminating the hassle of transferring between different modes of transport. It is a more convenient alternative route for residents who would otherwise rely on the MRT and other bus routes to reach the city.

In 2014, City Direct 659 was launched between Bedok and Shenton Way, which reduced demand on this service as a more affordable alternative.

Two trips are operated in the mornings, departing Bedok North Avenue 4 (Blk 95) at 7:50am and 8:00am on weekdays.

From 03 Jan 2017, Premium 545 will be operated by APT Travel Pte Ltd, running an additional trip from 0750 to 0800. There will be a total of 3 AM Trips.

Operating Days: Weekdays only. Does not operate on Weekends and Public Holidays.

Fare: Flat fare of $4.20. Transfer rebates & concessionary travel are not applicable.

Fleet: See above.

    Ref: Premium Service 545. I would like to write to APT Travel regarding this bus service. However, I am unable to find a website link to them. Could you tell me who I could write to if I want to give feedback about Bus Service 545 which was taken over by APT Travel in Jan 2017. Thanks much.

    Regards,
    /diana
