Service 901M Poster (Updated)

Feeder Service 901M serves residential blocks, schools and public amenities along Woodlands Ave 2, Woodlands Ave 1, Woodlands Dr 16 and Woodlands Ave 6, connecting them to Woodlands Regional Centre and key transport nodes such as Woodlands Bus Interchange/MRT station, Admiralty MRT Station and Woodlands South MRT Station.

As a route variant of Feeder Service 901, this route plies a longer version of Service 901 to offer improved connections within the Woodlands estate. It operates as every alternate trip of Service 901 departing Woodlands Interchange.

In addition, Service 901M serves the following schools and public amenities:

  • Woodgrove Primary School
  • Innova Primary School
  • Christ Church Secondary School
  • Spectra Secondary School
  • Kampung Admiralty
  • Admiralty Place
  • ACE the Place Community Centre
  • Vista Point
  • Woodlands East Neighbourhood Police Centre
  • Woodlands Galaxy Community Centre
  • Admiralty Wet Market & Food Centre
  • BW Monastery
  • Covenant Evangelical Free Church (Woodlands)
  • Light of Christ Church Woodlands

To accommodate the introduction of Service 901M, several new bus stops were constructed along Woodlands Drive 16 and Woodlands Avenue 6.

We launched the new 901M bus service today. I joined grassroots leaders and friends from LTA and SMRT who worked hard…

    Instead of buying new bendies for feeders which they say use a lot of spaces,They keep on adding buses and M variant which is redundant..Just extend the 901 route and use 9 SD and 5 BD for this route..912/913M another wasted service

        Also don’t forget that most locations only serve a single direction. So if the longer route is permanent could you imagine the hassle. I would rather suggest adding an additional bus service (i.e. 905…etc) that serves a different area and gives people an option.

      Bendy buses DO use alot of spaces and carry lesser people than double deckers. I for one feel that having a separate bus service (M variant) will work better than your suggestion because extending the route on the main service will mean more people on board and a longer time to reach a destination due to congestion, not the distance. It gives people a choice of which direction they prefer.

        I drove both bendy and double deck buses,In terms of seats DD is more but maximum capacity is bendy buses..Yes it would take slightly more but again the deployment should be alternately not sequential type.

      Yes but I think in the future that Service 901 and 901M will integrate
