    Bus service will be under AMDEP control, not HGDEP despite being in Serangoon-Eunos package.

      AMDEP is Ang Mo Kio Depot which is not near Upp East Coast Terminal or Sims Place.

    This is a old bus service with a new route. Many years ago this bus service already existed. From Toa Payoh to Zoo.
