Short Trip Service 75A was a trunk service operating from Gali Batu Bus Terminal and ended at Clementi Road (Opp SIM HQ).
As a Short-Trip Service, the route operated during Weekday Morning Peak hours and supplemented the high demand for Bus Service 75 from students commuting to Ngee Ann Polytechnic and the Singapore University of Social Sciences in the mornings.
On 11 April 2021, signage pertaining to Short Trip Service 75A were removed from bus stop poles, along with relevant service information from the Land Transport Authority “MyTransport” app / website as well as the website of operator SMRT Buses.
This coincided with the amendment of Bus Service 67, 75 and 170 to serve Beauty World MRT via Upper Bukit Timah Road (instead of Jalan Anak Bukit).
The last day of service was on Friday, 9 April 2021.
