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 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.

    AM Bus Driver of PC2460L has very poor driving skills. His driving is very dangerous, cutting lanes recklessly and not stopping at the proper places for passenger to alight. Please do something about this.
