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. The route incorporates an express sector between Loyang Ave and Anson Rd via TPE, PIE, KPE & MCE.

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

This is the eleventh 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. On the first day of operations on 22 Sep 2015, free rides were available on this service.

      Hi Vivian,

      The two timings provided here are bus departure timings from the first stop at Pasir Ris Dr 3. Allow extra time for the bus to travel to your bus stop along the route. Yes, payment can be made by EZ-Link Card just like a regular bus service.
