City Direct Service 669 provides residents of 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 Bedok and the CBD via ECP and MCE.
This is the nineteenth 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.
Rides on the launch day, 22 March 2016, were free-of-charge. The service was withdrawn on 3 June 2019, joining other City Direct Services which were discontinued earlier in December 2018.
