Introduced in 2007, Service 5 is an inter-town route connecting the East and Bukit Merah through the Central areas of Orchard and Novena. The route serves residential estates around Pasir Ris, Upper Changi, Simei, Bedok Reservoir, Tiong Bahru and Bukit Merah with connections to the City areas of Havlock, Paterson and Novena. The route plies an express sector along the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE) between Bedok Reservoir and Novena district, offering improved express connections between these areas.

Serving many inter-town connections, the route is frequently crowded during peak hours. Its express sector is especially well patronized as a direct connection between Bedok Reservoir, Jalan Toa Payoh and the City areas.

Fare: Charges basic distance fares. See Bus Fares. Calculate your bus fare using LTA’s fare calculator on MyTransport.sg here.
