Commuters will be able to enjoy more direct bus services from the heartland to the Central Business District with the introduction of two new City Direct Services in the coming months.

The services will make two one-way trips each way on weekday morning and evening peak periods, excluding public holidays.

Service 671, which will begin on Oct 17, will travel from Sengkang to Marina Boulevard in the morning and back in the evening.

Travelling from Hougang to Marina Boulevard in the morning and back again in the evening, service 672 will begin on Nov 7.

Both services will be operated by Rui Feng Chartered.

Extra trips will be added to nine of the existing 20 City Direct Services to meet the increasing demand.
