Service 409 linked the transport node of HarbourFront MRT and Bus Interchange with Mount Faber Park and the Singapore Cruise Centre. The service was aimed at park-goers and improved public transport connectivity to the park.

Introduced in 2005 as one of five Parks services, the route primarily served Mount Faber Park. This service has one en-route u-turn point at Maritime Square (near the Singapore Cruise Centre). Initially operating daily, its operating hours were progressively reduced due to low demand, with weekday operations permanently ceased from July 2006.

The route was withdrawn from 1 March 2013 likely due to insufficient demand levels, with the last day of service being Sunday, 24 February 2013, leaving Parks 408 as the sole surviving Parks service until July 2016.
