Feeder Service 291 serves residents and schools around Tampines Neighbourhoods 7 and 8 on the West Loop, and Neighbourhoods 2 and 3 on the East Loop, connecting both ends of its route to Tampines Regional Centre.

A full trip of Service 291 will first ply the West Loop followed by the East Loop, while calling at Tampines Interchange between loops. Terminating trips will display as Service 291T to indicate that the bus will no longer continue its journey after Tampines Interchange.

From Tampines Interchange, different boarding berths are used for the East (Berth B8) and West loop (Berth B9) respectively. Passengers should check the service direction before boarding the bus.

In 2014, a PPSS variant of this route, 291P, was introduced. It duplicates 291’s East Loop and operates during weekday peak hours only. The service was withdrawn from 1 Sep 2016 as part of Changes to PPSS in Sep 2016.

During Eves of Public Holidays, last bus timings are extended to 1:05am to complement the extension of train operating hours.

As part of a 3 month trial (later extended to 6 months, then 1 Year), from 31 July 2017 till 31 July 2018, most buses plying the Townlink 291 route are equipped with Wi-Fi.

The Townlink branding for Service 291 was dropped in August 2018.
