Service 29 connects Tampines Regional Centre with Tampines East, Old Tampines Road, Upper Changi Road North and Netheravon Road, looping at Changi Village Terminal.
At Tampines East, Service 29 compliments Service 28 and 293 between Tampines Interchange and Tampines Ave 9, which benefits from high residential demand. Further on, Service 29 is the only service to serve Old Tampines Rd and Netheravon Rd, offering bus connections to residents and various amenities in those areas.
From Changi Village Terminal, Service 29 is the only bus service back to Tampines, but commuters looking for a quicker option can transfer from 2, 59 or 109 to Service 19 at Loyang Avenue. Commuters should be aware of Service 19’s operating hours.
Double-deck buses are not operated due to insufficient demand, and possibly low headroom along Old Tampines Rd, Cranwell Rd and Netheravon Rd.
