Route History

Introduced in 1983, Service 25 is an important inter-town route connecting residential estates of Ang Mo Kio, Hougang, Eunos and Bedok to Ang Mo Kio, Kembangan and Bedok MRT stations. The route serves the full stretch of Hougang Avenue 2 and 3, and as such, the route is highly direct in nature, providing the quickest route between estates.

Demand for this route is high due to residential and industrial areas served, so double-decker buses make up the bulk of the fleet. The route runs parallel to SMRT Service 854 between Bedok Interchange and Yio Chu Kang Road, as well as Service 55 between Ang Mo Kio and Eunos.
