Go-Ahead Bus Service 119 is a residential trunk route from Punggol Int and looping at Kovan, passing through Sengkang East, Hougang Avenue 8, Upper Serangoon Road and Hougang Street 21. The service offers key inter-town links for residential areas along its route, connecting to transport nodes at Punggol, Sengkang and Kovan MRT Stations. It loops at Hougang Street 21 FC, the old Hougang South Bus Interchange.

In 2012, Service 119 was extended to Punggol (from Sengkang) and classified as the second bus service to be “introduced” under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP). Double-deck Volvo B9TL Wright buses were added, making the return of double-decker buses to 119, which were phased out long ago owing to lack of demand.

From February to April 2017, Go-Ahead’s BYD K9 electric bus was trialled on Service 119. Check out Go-Ahead Singapore trials BYD Electric Bus for more information.

    Double Decker Buses Should deploy everyday not only during the peak hours but also throughout the day and on weekends.
