Service 165 is a residential route connecting the towns of Hougang, Ang Mo Kio and Upper Thomson with Farrer and Clementi. Despite being a supplementary connection between its many areas of service, almost all of its route plies along main roads, making it a quicker and more convenient inter-town link as compared to other services.

The route shares its Hougang Central – Clementi termini with Service 147, but plies a much faster route.

Fare: Charges basic distance fares. See Bus Fares.

    Many people take 165 from Hougang Ctrl Int to Hougang Ave 8. Last 165 leaves Hougang at 11:20pm which is too early.

    165A is needed from Hougang Ctrl Int to Hougang Ave 2 (63319 Opp Blk 634). Then downroute 165 from 63311 Blk 634 back to Hougang. Operate full day from 7am-12:30am.
