Express Bus Service 951E provides residents of Woodlands with greater connectivity to Dhoby Ghaut and Shenton Way. By running parallel to the existing North-South Line (NSL), the service provides a travel alternative for commuters who relied on the rail network and existing feeder buses to and from work in the Central areas. The route incorporates a long express sector between Woodlands Avenue 1 and Dhoby Ghaut via Woodlands Avenue 12, Seletar Expressway (SLE) and Central Expressway (CTE), significantly improving journey time for commuters.
This is the twelfth bus service to be introduced under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP), which provides more options for commuters using stretches of the existing rail lines that experience persistently high ridership, while ongoing rail enhancement measures are being implemented.

The 1st bus always ! Late !!!!
Please improve !!!!
N the 1st driver is not suit for driving express bus, too slow
Same situation as 850E, 971E, 982E & 868E; renumber to parent route, extend to nearby interchanges and become full-day trunk services.
I also forgot, replace express sectors with more stops
no better put more express sector
Hoping that SMRT will soon add one earlier bus that start at 7am or 7.05am. Need to reach office (Shenton Way) before 8.30am. Will be good to add one more bus in the evening 6.45pm. Thanks.

Please improve the frequency of bus 665. Kindly have more intervals or double decker buses as well as the buses are always full
bus 665 is under Tower Transit Singapore.
not anymore, now it is under SMRT
