City Direct Service 660 provides residents of Hougang Neighbourhoods 6 and 9 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 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3 and Orchard Road via the CTE.

A pair of new bus stops was be constructed along Hougang Street 91 (outside Hougang Secondary School) for this service. This is the tenth City Direct service to be introduced under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP), which 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.

Additional morning trips were added effective from 01 September 2014, 11 May 2015 and 25 June 2018 to cope with growing demand for this service.
