The following information about Service 640 were submitted by a contributor:

Bus number plates and departure timings:

Morning (AM)
Bus plate number “PA2226H” Around 7.10am to 7.15am
@ Block 508 Carpark, Canberra Road
Bus plate number “PC9133K” Around 7.15am to 7.20am
@ Block 508 Carpark, Canberra Road
Bus plate number “PC6222G” or “PA6011J” Around 8.05am
@ Block 508 Carpark, Canberra Road
It is unclear if the bus driver starts to pick up passengers before this bus stop or at the nearby Koufu.

At any day, any of these 3 buses will ply the weekday morning route at the above timings so look out for the bus plate number, unless there are sudden changes and passengers will not be able to get hold of the information beforehand.

Evening (PM)
Bus plate number “PA2226H” or “PC9133K” or “PC6222G” Around 5.25 pm
@ Hub Synergy Pt, Anson Road
Buss plate number “PA6011J” Around 6.05pm
@ Hub Synergy Pt, Anson Road
Passengers are advised to start their journey from the bus stop at International Plaza outside Tanjong Pagar Station instead as that is the confirmed bus stop the buses will start their PM route.

Similar to the morning route, at any day any of these 2 buses will ply the weekday evening route at the above timings so look out for the bus plate number, unless there are sudden changes and passengers will not be able to get hold of the information beforehand.

Advice for new passengers wanting to try this service:

  • As the drivers are known to spot regular passengers at bus stops and along roadsides (yes, the drivers may stop suddenly along the roads to pick up regular passengers not at the bus stop), therefore it is best that you can become their regular passenger for this service
  • New passengers must press the bell as early as possible if you wish to alight as drivers do not stop at every bus stop, and sometimes they accelerate along certain stretches despite having bus stops with their service. As per point 1, drivers recognize regular passengers and can pinpoint exactly who will board the bus at what time and alight at which bus stop. Do not be surprised if the bus suddenly stops halfway without bus stop and passengers alight.
