City Direct Service 661 provides residents of Pasir Ris 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.

3 New bus stops were constructed along Pasir Ris St 11 for this service.

    When will City Direct 661 resume normal operations?

  • 3 December 2019 at 10:49 AM

    Since all Go- Ahead services are in the Loyang bus package, bus 661’s bus package is Loyang bus package. Same goes for bus 663/665, which is in Bulim bus package.
