Service 359P duplicated the East Loop of Townlink 359, serving between Pasir Ris Interchange & MRT with Pasir Ris Neighborhoods 1 and 5. Operated using private coaches from Loh Gim Chong Transport, the route helps to relieve frequent overcrowding on Service 359. It is the 5th PPSS service to be introduced along with 358P, commencing service on the same day.

Peak Period Short Services operate at least five trips per hour during weekday morning & evening 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With the transition to the Bus Contracting Model (BCM), PPSS 359P was withdrawn from 19 Sep 2016. Additional departures from Pasir Ris Int plying the East Loop operated by Go-Ahead Singapore during weekday morning & evening peak hours were added to replace this service.
