Bus Service 26 is a inter-town route between Toa Payoh and Bedok, passing through Bendemeer, Geylang Bahru, Kallang, Geylang, Paya Lebar and Eunos. The route duplicates the East-West Line between Kallang and Kembangan, a sector also shared by Service 2, 67 and many more routes over shorter sectors of Sims Avenue and Changi/Geylang Road.

With multiple parallel routes, demand for this service is low to moderate during offpeak hours between Kallang and Kembangan, and hence mainly serves as a route for Toa Payoh and Geylang Bahru residents heading to Sims Avenue and Geylang and a supplementary route in other areas. During peak hours, the route compliments well with heavy demand between Kallang and Bedok.

    Wise amendment for a stretch with several parallel routes. Can also look into amending a route that makes a loop at Jln Kembangan, calling at the svc 42 1st/last stop, in the direction towards town area to better serve Lengkong Tiga flats & link to Kembangan MRT.

    Good to have service 26 amended, as there are multiple parallel routes! Plus those at Chai Chee can also get to Geylang Serai or Bendemeer in one bus trip.

      I bet TCJ pushed for this. Chai Chee Dr used to be served by Route 222 in only one direction.
