Premium 545 serves housing estates around Bedok North Road and Bedok South Road with bus connections to the CBD, eliminating the hassle of transferring between different modes of transport. It is a more convenient alternative route for residents who would otherwise rely on the MRT and other bus routes to reach the city.

In 2014, City Direct 659 was launched between Bedok and Shenton Way, which reduced demand on this service as a more affordable alternative.

The route was originally introduced by SBS Transit, with two trips are operated in the mornings, at 7:50am and 8:00am on weekdays. APT Travel took over operations of the route with 3 trips at 7:50am, 7:55am and 8:00am from 3 Jan 2017. Subsequently, the number of trips was reduced back to 2.

    Ref: Premium Service 545. I would like to write to APT Travel regarding this bus service. However, I am unable to find a website link to them. Could you tell me who I could write to if I want to give feedback about Bus Service 545 which was taken over by APT Travel in Jan 2017. Thanks much.

    Regards,
