Service 95 primarily serves the National University of Singapore (NUS) Kent Ridge Campus with bus connections to Buona Vista MRT, Kent Ridge MRT and Kent Ridge Bus Terminal, as well as serving the residents of Holland Village to Buona Vista MRT.

Previously the only bus service from NUS to Buona Vista MRT, peak hour demand was exceedingly high, but the opening of Kent Ridge MRT station in Oct 2011 helped distribute the high peak demand to NUS Internal Shuttle Bus (ISB) routes. Currently, NUS ISB Services A1/A2 link Kent Ridge Cres and Lower Buona Vista Rd with Kent Ridge MRT, with Service D2 supplementing A1/A2 along Lower Buona Vista Rd only.

During NUS vacation, buses will operate on a holiday schedule without peak hour fleet additions. Double-deck buses were added in early 2011 in response to high demand.

At one point, this service had the most number of Shortworking Trips of any bus service:

  • 95A: North Buona Vista Rd (Opp Buona Vista Stn) → Lower Kent Ridge Road (NUH), AM Peak only
  • 95B: Kent Ridge Ter → North Buona Vista Rd (Buona Vista Stn), PM Peak only
  • 95C: North Buona Vista Rd (Opp Buona Vista Stn) → Lower Kent Ridge Road (Opp Staff Club), AM Peak only
  • 95D: Kent Ridge Ter → Holland Road (Holland Village), PM Peak / last few trips

95A was withdrawn when Kent Ridge Station of the Circle Line opened. 95C and 95D had no real purpose apart from load distribution, and were withdrawn as well. Only 95B remains to help with PM Peak loading.
