City Direct Service 672 provides residents of Hougang with greater connectivity to the CBD.

The route incorporates an express sector between Hougang and the CBD via Tampines Rd, KPE and MCE.

This is the twenty-second 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.

The tender for this route was called for on 15 April 2016. Read more about the tender here.

    Given that the journey from Hougang to MBFC takes more than an hour, can add another two buses earlier at 7am and 7.20am. This is for people who need to start work at 8am and 8.30am.

    Can add a earlier bus at 6.10pm. 6.20pm is little bit long to wait for people going out of office before/at 6 pm
