New bus services for four locations

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has awarded three private bus operators contracts worth a total of $5 million to operate four Peak Period Short Services (PPSS) for two years.

In a statement yesterday, LTA said the four PPSS will overlay existing feeder bus services to connect residents in Ang Mo Kio, Bedok, Boon Lay and Woodlands to nearby bus interchanges and MRT stations.

The services will be launched progressively from the second quarter of this year.

All four PPSS will run at least five trips per hour during peak periods on weekday mornings and evenings, excluding public holidays. More trips may be added depending on demand.

Further details will be announced closer to the implementation dates.
