Route Information

Service 965 is an inter-town route serving between the housing estates of Woodlands, Yishun and Sengkang. The route is frequented as a fast connection between Yishun and Sengkang due to its express sector along the Seletar Expressway (SLE) and Tampines Expressway (TPE). Service 85 also plies between Sengkang and Yishun, but serves bus stops along Sengkang West and Jalan Kayu before travelling to Yishun.

As the fastest public transport link between Sengkang and Yishun, this service experiences good demand all day round with higher demand during peak hours. High capacity Alexander Dennis Enviro500 double-deck buses were deployed from November 2014 to cope with peak hour loads.

Between Woodlands and Sengkang, Service 161 offers the faster route by skipping Yishun town entirely. From 2244hrs onwards (Daily), buses leaving Woodlands Temp Int will terminate at Sengkang Int but continue to operate as Service 965 (without other indications of its half-trip nature).
