New parallel bus service from Choa Chu Kang to the city

A new parallel bus service run by SMRT will connect Choa Chu Kang neighbourhoods to the Central Business District (CBD) from March 18.

The parallel bus service, 982E, will operate two one-way trips on weekday mornings at 7.40am and 7.50am from Choa Chu Kang Avenue 5, Choa Chu Kang Avenue 4, Choa Chu Kang Way, Choa Chu Kang Avenue 1 and Teck Whye Avenue to areas within the CBD such as Anson Road, Robinson Road and Marina Boulevard.

On weekday evenings, two one-way trips at 6.15 pm and 6.30 pm will connect commuters from areas such as Central Boulevard and Shenton Way to the Choa Chu Kang.

The new service aims to provide greater connectivity to the Choa Chu Kang residents who travel to and from the CBD areas during morning and evening peak hours, said SMRT in a statement on Tuesday.
