City Direct Service 651 provides residents of Jurong West with greater connectivity to the CBD. By running parallel to existing rail lines, the service provides a travel alternative for commuters who relied on the rail network and feeder buses to and from work. The route incorporates an express sector between Jurong West Street 61 (near Pioneer MRT) and Anson Road/Shenton Way via Pioneer Road North and Ayer Rajah Expressway

This is the first City Direct service to be introduced under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP), and one of ten proposed City Direct bus routes to be progressively introduced until the 2nd Quarter of 2014. This provides more options for commuters using stretches of the existing rail lines that experience persistently high ridership, while the ongoing rail enhancement measures are being implemented.

On 3 Oct 2016, Rui Feng Chartered Pte Ltd took over operations from ComfortDelGro Bus Pte Ltd as the winning tenderer for this City Direct Service.

    Service 651 was exceptionally slow this morning 25Jan19.

    Heavy traffic along Jln Boon Lay and all vehicles took 40-45 mins just to get out from Jln Boon lay.

    Apparently this happened due to upgrading works at the Checkpoint at Jurong Island where Jln Boon Lay ends. Hence Jln Boon Lay was jammed up.

    Hopefully service 651 could be re-route to exit from Corporation Road instead of Jln Boon Lay to avoid heavy traffic.

    There are 2 departures timings 6:15 pm and 6:30 pm. On many occasions I reach the bus stop at 6:25 pm (UIC building) but the bus never come. I Guess bus driver wants to go back early so depart from bus terminal earlier than designated time.
