Route History

Feeder Service 903 serves residential blocks, schools and public amenities along Marsling Lane, Marsling Dr, Admiralty Rd and Woodlands Centre Rd, as well as industries at Marsling Industrial Estate, connecting them to transport nodes at Woodlands Regional Centre, namely Woodlands Regional Bus Interchange & Woodlands MRT Station. Its primary area of service is housing estate of Marsling.

The route serves schools such as Si Ling Secondary School, and also serves community amenities such as Woodlands Community Centre (CC), Marsling Lane (Blk 20) Market & Hawker Centre, Marsling CC and Woodlands Train Checkpoint. High capacity articulated buses are deployed on a daily basis due to high demand for residents, schools and public amenities alike, with exceptionally higher demand from the industrial estate during peak hours.

Route variant Peak Period Short Service 903P was introduced in 2015 using Private buses to enhance Bus Service 903. However, 903P only loops at Marsiling Lane, skipping Woodlands Centre Road. In Jan 2017, 903P was replaced with 903M, operated by SMRT Buses. Route details remain the same.

Commuters heading towards Woodlands Centre Road should not board 903M.

    My Dad took bus 903 this evening about 5pm and he was thrown off his balance in the bus by the reckless driver. Car plate number 8029. The driver was scolded by many passengers when it happened.
    My Dad had seen a doctor for his injury and obtained a report.
    We would like the driver reprimand for his reckless driving and for reimbursement of his medical bill.
