A new parallel bus service will connect Woodlands to the Central Business District (CBD) from June 17.

The parallel bus service, 951E, will operate two one-way trips on weekday mornings at 7.30am and 7.45am from Woodlands Street 82, Woodlands Avenue 4 and Woodlands Avenue 1 to areas within the CBD such as Orchard Road, Bras Basah Road, Raffles Quay and Shenton Way.

On weekday evenings, two one-way trips at 6.15pm and 6.30pm will connect commuters from areas like Anson Road, Fullerton Road and Esplanade Drive to Woodlands.

This is the 12th bus service to be rolled out under the Land Transport Authority's Bus Service Enhancement Programme, a $1.1 billion bus package to deploy more buses for new and existing bus services. The new service will provide greater connectivity and an alternative travel option for Woodlands residents travelling to and from the CBD during peak hours in the morning and evening.
