Feeder Service 902 provides a direct bus connection for Republic Polytechnic Students & Staff from Woodlands Interchange & MRT Station.

Despite the short distance between Woodlands MRT and Republic Polytechnic, many students take the bus out of convenience and affordability owing to the distance-fare structure (i.e. transfer discount).

At just 1.0km, Service 902 is the shortest feeder route, and the only feeder route to not operate in a loop. During other times of day, Bus Service 169 also offers bus connection between Woodlands Int and Republic Polytechnic.

    I’m curious, is it that only RP students and staff can take the bus or is it open to the public?

      everyone can take, just that people take 169 for more space

    Involves-Bus 169 169A 169B 902

    merge bus 902 and 169(Wdlnds Int to Republic Poly)(2 directions) to form bus 952e
    create bus 952 by the normal 169
    169A and 169B renumber to 952A and 952B

      I don’t think 952 may be introduced again as Woodlands is nowadays at 96x series. Either way, let 902 just be formed under 169A or 169B can already. But introducing 952 will be 100% impossible.

    Just rename 902 to bus 169C just a waste of time
