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.
Bus Service 308 was withdrawn following the integration with the extended Bus Service 991 since 30 September 2018. Bus Service 991 was introduced in July 2018 and operated along an interim route within the Bukit Batok estate only prior to the extension to Choa Chu Kang.

Withdrawn SO fast!? I haven’t even got it’s service guide. Please reintroduce this service so I ❤️ SMRT. Please.
P.s: you’ve 💔 since 308 is withdrawn.
308 had duplicated most of 172 and 983 ok, that’s why 991 was chosen to replace it as a resource for connectivity needs.
Bus 308 shouldn’t have been withdrawn as it starts operations in 2016. I’m a little bit upset about the withdrawal of bus 308. But please introduce bus 305!!
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
991 is a final answer
No Tan lay hiang, because bus 991 serves bukit batok and choa chu kang residents. That’s what I want to told them to stop withdrawn feeder 308!!!!
Why must withdraw bus 308? I stay blk 812c…And we need it…991 bus is far from us…We have to bring primary school children to school… Kindly consider before withdraw out bus 308…
