Service 141 is the eleventh bus service to be introduced under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP). For more information on the BSEP, click on the link to a separate article. 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.
“Service 141, the 11th new bus service, under the Bus Service Enhancement, will provide commuters with better connectivity between Lorong 1 Geylang and Toa Payoh. This new trunk service will ply along Lavender Street, Jalan Besar, Rangoon Road, Thomson Road, Toa Payoh Rise and Lorong 1 Toa Payoh before terminating at Toa Payoh Bus Interchange. From 9 June, Service 141 will give commuters more access to amenities such as Jalan Besar Stadium, medical institutions such as Thomson Medical Centre, Tan Tock Seng Hospital and Mount Elizabeth Novena Medical Centre and shopping malls such as City Square and Velocity@Novena Square.”

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.
