Fare Information
Fare Charges regular distance fares

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 Havelock, 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.

Enhanced Connectivity to Flora Drive

On Sunday, 21 July 2019, Service 5 was amended to ply Flora Drive and Mariam Way, serving a pair of new bus stops along Flora Drive and a pair of exiting bus stops along Mariam Way, while skipping 2 pairs of bus stops along Upper Changi Road North.

    Like that 24 can be extended to Serve the Japanese School, Flora Drive and Road before going on Old Tampines Road and entering the TPE to head to the airport. Enhances connections to Tanah Merah from Flora Drive.
