Bus service 48 will also skip two bus stops along Holland Avenue and Holland Drive on Sunday Feb 9, from 5pm to 6.30pm, due to a road closure for a Chingay Parade event.

On Sunday Feb 9, 14 bus services will skip eight bus stops in the Chinatown area from 2pm to 11pm because of road closures for the Chinese New Year Yuan Xiao Party. The routes are 2, 12, 33, 54, 63, 80, 124, 143, 145, 147, 166, 197, CT8 and CT18.
