Service 307P duplicates the North Loop of Intratown 307, serving between Choa Chu Kang MRT with Choa Chu Kang Neighbourhoods 6 and 7. Operated using private coaches from Woodlands Transport, the route helps to relieve frequent overcrowding on Service 307. It is the 9th PPSS service to be introduced.

Despite duplicating 307, this service does not serve Choa Chu Kang Interchange.

Peak Period Short Services operate at least five trips per hour during Weekday AM and PM peak periods. This initiative taps on the resources of Private Bus Operators to run shorter bus services to augment the resources of the Public Transport Operators (PTOs).

Withdrawal:

With the transition to the Bus Contracting Model (GCM), PPSS 307P was renumbered as Shortworking Trip 307A and operated by SMRT Buses from 1 Sep 2016. More information at Changes to PPSS.

Fare: Basic fares capped at 3.2km. See Bus Fares.

Fleet: Service 307P′s fleet fully comprises of private coaches from Woodlands Transport Service Pte Ltd.
