City Direct Service 658 provides residents of Eunos and Bedok Reservoir with greater connectivity to the CBD. 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 Jalan Eunos and Marina Bay via PIE, KPE and Sheares Avenue.

This is the eight City Direct service to be introduced under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP), and one of ten 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.

The service was discontinued on Monday, 17 December 2018. Aedge continues to operate the route in the morning under Premium 784.
