Route History

Service 115 was introduced as a supplementary route too fill up missing transport links, benefitting residents along a short stretch of Hougang Avenue 3 with a direct bus route to Kovan MRT Station and Kovan City. This service uses the former Hougang South Bus Terminal as its terminating stop. Originally introduced as a six-month trail, the service lives on till today despite its low demand.

Formerly operating at frequencies of over half an hour, the Bus Services Enhancement Programme added one bus to the fleet from 14 July 2014, which improved frequencies tremendously, down to an average of slightly over 15 minutes. Another additional bus was added as well later on. This service is also the very last basic bus service to operate on a single bus.
