Feeder Bus Service 308 was a residential feeder route which served new developments in the Keat Hong area, connecting them to key transport nodes at Choa Chu Kang. These new developments were mainly Build-To-Order (BTO) flat projects, such as Keat Hong Axis, Keat Hong Colours, Keat Hong Quad and Keat Hong Mirage. Educational institutions served by the feeder bus service includes APSN (Delta Senior School) and ITE College West.

Bus Service 308 also provided an alternative route to Choa Chu Kang Bus Interchange to Bus Service 983 in the Keat Hong area.

    308 has been a much needed service for commuters living along Avenue 1 and Avenue 7 heading towards Choa Chu Kang Interchange. It is also provides a much needed supplement for the 172 as the intervals for the bus takes way too long. Taking the 983 to Lot 1 takes significantly longer and is not as efficient as the 308. However, because of the intervals between the 308 takes like 8-12 minutes, it comes across as a service that is under used. Could one potential solution be to retain the 308 service but increase the duration between bus intervals? Due to the distance travelled, it would be possible even if there were only 3 buses in circulation for the whole circuit. However a total discontinuation of the service would be a complete disservice to those who have already made this service part of their daily commute. Please reconsider the discontinuation.

      Complain to LTA and SMRT. If they won’t give back 308, tell them to at least put 991 on 308 route
