Premium 565 serves the housing estates around Kim Keat and Balestier with bus connections to the CBD. It provides a more convenient alternative route for residents who would otherwise rely on the MRT or other bus routes to reach the city.

Currently, Services 131 and 186 also provide connections from St. Michael’s Estate to Shenton Way, but ply a longer route without expressways. From Balestier Road, Service 130 additionally provides connections to Shenton Way alongside 131 and 186.

With the change of operator to City Transit Pte Ltd from 29 Aug 2016, an additional stop was added to the route Opp Maritime House, along Cantonment Rd. Also, an additional AM Trip at 0745hrs was added to cater to the demand which used to be served by a double-decker bus under SBS Transit. This additional trip was later withdrawn due to the reduced demand.

    It has occurred now several times that this bus did nit show up at Opp Balestier Towers. It is supposed to stop there at 7:57. I was there at 7:52 until 8:06 and it never showed up. Is 565 not in service anymore?

      Why didn’t you wait longer?
      You could have asked people at the bus stop if they were taking the same bus as you
      Or if they had the bus app where you check the arrivals of the buses at that bus stop ask them to check the arrivals of this bus
