Actually, Service 4 can also be operated by Go-ahead Singapore like Service 3 which is also from Tampines (even though the reason is because of Punggol) but it loops at a place that is near Changi Village and Service 2 is operated by Go-ahead Singapore.
Like that, also can transfer 29, 59 and 109 (which are in different bus packages)
Number 4 used to ply Bedok to Moulmein Road (loop) then Bedok to St Michael’s in the 70s – 80s.
At one point, it was extended to Tampines Interchange before it was withdrawn.
Actually, the extension to St Michael’s was in the late 80s and the extension to Tampines was in the early 90s.
