Route History

Service 4 was launched on Sunday, 17 March 2013. The new service provides better connectivity for commuters travelling between Tampines and the Changi North Industrial Estate and its surrounding areas. This is the seventh bus service to be rolled out under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP).

The new service enhances connectivity for commuters travelling between Tampines, Flora Road and Changi North Industrial Estate as well as its surrounding areas, with the service calling at eight new bus stops in the Flora and Changi North Industrial Estate. It also enhances the connectivity to key transport nodes at Tampines Bus Interchange and MRT, where they can transfer to other bus services or rail lines to reach their destination. In addition, Service 4 improves connection of these areas to amenities within Tampines Town such as schools and malls.

Service 4 receives considerable demand from Flora Road, where residents previously heading to Tampines had to rely on a shuttle bus run by ComfortDelGro charging a flat fare of $1.30. In addition, this route helps disperse Service 37’s high peak demand for workers at Changi North Industrial Estate, as well as providing new bus connectivity for industries along Changi North Way.
