NightRider NR7 is a late-night service connecting the city areas of Marina Centre, City Hall, River Valley and Orchard with the residential estates of Kaki Bukit, Bedok North, Tanah Merah, Simei, Tampines and Pasir Ris. Operating only on Fridays, Saturdays & Eves of Public Holidays (and special occasions if announced), the route shuttles late-night dwellers from the City to the residential estates outside the City.

Route Specifications

A large portion of the route duplicates major trunk roads along the East-West Line. Before its route shortening in 2014, it was 76.3km long, the longest bus route in Singapore by distance, with Service 858 taking second place (73.4km).

NightRider NR7 was introduced on 26th May 2000 by Trans-Island Bus Service (TIBS). Originally a single-directional service from Marina Centre to Pasir Ris, it was later converted to bi-directional loop operation. It offered daily unidirectional service in 2003 after merger with SMRT NightBus SN10 and NightRider NR8 (operating Marina Centre to Pasir Ris), with the existing Friday/Saturdays/Eves of PHs route amended to incorporate NightRider NR8’s routing. Weekday night services were cancelled in 2004 owing to low demand. Finally, the route was converted to unidirectional operation terminating at Pasir Ris in 2014.

During festive periods such as Christmas Eve or New Years’ Eve, more departures and downroute buses will be added to cater for late-night dwellers.

On-Demand Public Bus (ODPB) Trial

To facilitate the ODPB Trial for Night Bus from 04 January 2019 till June 2019, NR7 would be suspended. Commuters going to Geylang / Bedok / Tampines may book an On-Demand Public Bus (On-Demand Public Bus – Night Bus – CBD to Bedok / Tampines) through the BusNow app.

Commuters heading to Pasir Ris should take SBS Transit Nite Owl 4N during the ODPB trial period. Alternatively, commuters who prefer a regular scheduled bus to Bedok or Tampines may take SBS Transit Nite Owl 2N or 4N.
