Service 201 improves connectivity for residents in Teban Gardens, Pandan Gardens and West Coast area to Clementi MRT Station and Kent Ridge Bus Terminal, along with other amenities in the neighborhood. The new route also benefits the new Build To Order flats and existing industries along Penjuru Road. It was launched on Sunday, 23 November 2014.

Besides enhancing connectivity to key transport nodes, the new service provides residents with more convenient access to amenities like Teban Gardens Market and Hawker Centre, Ayer Rajah Community Centre, West Coast Plaza, Commonwealth Secondary School, Kent Ridge Secondary School, Clementi Woods Secondary School and Waseda Shibuya Senior High School.

Two new bus stops were constructed along Penjuru Road (southbound) to complement the implementation of this bus route, namely 29159 Aft Teban Gdns Cres and 20249 Blk 54. This service ran parallel to the then existing Service 189 between Clementi MRT and Kent Ridge Terminal, thereby replacing it when Service 189 was amended to loop at Clementi Avenue 1.

    Service 201 could extend to Boon Lay ITH and loop at Clementi Avenue 1 passing via Jln Boon Lay, AYE, Teban Gardens, Clementi & Clementi AVe 1(loop)

    Lost sectors from Kent Ridge to Pandan Gardens will be replaced by services 184 & 30

    Service 184 will convert into a bidirectional route and extend from Gali Batu TER TO TUAS Ter passing via Bt PANJANG, Upp Bt Timah, Clementi Rd, West Coast, Jalan Boruh & Pioneer Road

    Service 30 will amend to ply Pandan Garden, skipping Teban Gardens & Penjuru Road, the route still stays the same from Boon Lay To Bedok

    Can consider a modified route as 201M to ply Clementi Ave 1 (CASA) to ease the load of Service 189 on weekend.
