SINGAPORE - A new bus service, 944, will ply the roads in Bukit Batok from Aug 27, serving residents in Bukit Batok West.

Commuters will be able to use the bus service to go from Bukit Batok Bus Interchange and MRT station to Bukit Batok West Avenue 6 and Bukit Batok Road, said the Land Transport Authority and SMRT Buses in a statement on Monday (Aug 14).

The bus service will also serve key amenities such as Bukit Batok Polyclinic and West Mall.

It will operate from 5.30am to 1am daily, including public holidays.

Service 944 is the 76th service to be introduced under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme, which began in 2012. Another four new bus services are expected to be launched this year.

The billion-dollar programme  has expanded the public bus fleet by about 35 per cent in a bid to reduce waiting times and congestion.
