Service 141 is the eleventh bus service to be introduced under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP). The intra-town service improves on existing bus connections between Toa Payoh, Pek Kio, Lavender and Kallang. It also offers much better bus connections for residents of Pek Kio estate which previously relied on Service 131 as their sole bus route.
MAVIS App Trial
In January 2019, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) launched a six-month Assistive Passenger Information System (APIS) trial for commuters with special needs using an app called MAVIS, short for Mobility Assistance for the Visually Impaired and Special users.
Under the initial trial, 3 buses were equipped with APIS and were deployed on Service 139 serving Enabling Village till end-April 2019, and thereafter redeployed to Service 141 serving Singapore Association Of The Visually Handicapped (SAVH).
During the Committee of Supply Debate 2020, it was announced that the trial would be expanded for 3 years to cover all buses deployed on Services 139 & 141, beginning from Q4 2020.
