NightRider NR6 is a late-night service connecting the city areas of Resorts World, HarbourFront, Bayfront, City Hall, River Valley, Orchard and Little India with the residential estates of Boon Keng, Potong Pasir, Serangoon, Hougang and Sengkang. Operating only on Fridays, Saturdays & Eves of Public Holidays, the route shuttles late-night dwellers from the City to the residential estates outside the City.

The route has an short express sector along the AYE/MCE between Keppel Road and Bayfront. Most of the route follows major trunk roads from the cities to the housing estates. From the City to Hougang and parts of Sengkang, Nite Owl 6N offers faster journeys by plying the Central Expressway (CTE).

NightRider NR6 was introduced on 26th May 2000 by Trans-Island Bus Service (TIBS). Originally a single-directional service from Marina Centre to Sengkang, it was later converted to bi-directional loop operation. The route was extended to HarbourFront in 2007, and subsequently to Resorts World Sentosa in 2010 to serve new integrated resorts. In 2014, the route was reverted back to a single-directional night service terminating at Sengkang.
