Premium 761 serves the housing estates of Ang Mo Kio Neighborhoods 1, 2 and 3 with bus connections to the CBD, eliminating the hassle of transferring between different modes of transport. It is a more convenient alternative route for residents who would otherwise rely on the MRT to reach the city. Other routes running nearby like Service 133 also provide bus connections to the city.

761 was the only SBS Transit Premium service to use the 7xx route numbering most commonly reserved for private operators.

With the takeover of operations by Commute Solutions from SBS Transit on 3 Oct 2016, the route was extended to Temasek Blvd, omitting Fullerton Square with an increase in fares. An additional trip was also added to cope with the lesser seating capacity of private buses as compared to double-decker buses.

Commuters may also pre-book passes from the ShareTransport App.

    LTA: Bus service now only run 2 bus timing instead of 3 timing since July 2017. The 2nd bus was removed without informing passengers (June period always give notice that bus break down). Nowsaday 1st bus don’t even stop for passengers at Block 331 Ang Mo Kio Ave 1 even we wave to stop (always drive in middle lane). Wonder if LTA is aware of above issue?

        Don’t waste your time to believe what you see on the website or call! Go and wait at Blk 331 bus stop next Monday 21 Aug morning and see for yourself!!!
        Many of us had called them to feedback the issue of frequent bus breakdown, no seats etc since they took over. But they replied we will check……nothing happened! Very bad service!!!

    Is it possible to have an earlier timing like 740am?

      Yes, the pick up point is at the bus stop outside Teck Ghee Court. The estimated travelling time provided by Commute Solutions is about 44 minutes.
