Feeder Service 275 serves residential estates and schools around Bukit Purmei and Lower Delta Road with connections to Jalan Bukit Merah Bukit Merah Town Centre. It duplicates Service 131 along its entire route, and enhances connectivity for Bukit Purmei residents.
The route experiences low demand as a supplementary service, and plans to withdraw the route were hampered by local MP’s requests to keep the route operational. The route eventually received an additional bus under the Bus Services Enhancement Programme (BSEP) to boost frequencies.
The last day of operation for Service 275 was on Sunday, 24 Aug 2014, after which it was withdrawn and replaced by Service 131M, which duplicates Service 275 entirely, but operates only during weekday peak hours.
Fare: Fares for Feeder Services are capped at 3.2km. Refer to Bus Fares.
Fleet: Service 275’s fleet comprised of a single Mercedes-Benz O530 Citaro. An additional Citaro was added under the BSEP scheme a year before withdrawal.
