Route History

Service 964 serves as both an industrial and residential route, connecting residential developments around Woodlands Ave 6 and Woodlands Ave 7, and industries around Woodlands Ave 9 and Woodlands Loop, with transport nodes at Woodlands Regional Centre.

The route does not operate on Sundays and Public Holidays, as its residential sector between Woodlands Int and Woodlands Ave 6 runs parallel to Intratown 913. With much of its demand coming from the industrial estate, the route encounters moderate demand during the day but high demand during peak hours, and much of its fleet operates under split-shift. High capacity double-deck buses were added to the fleet in Jan 2015.

Fare: Charges fares for regular trunk services. See Bus Fares for exact fares.

Fleet: Service 964′s fleet comprises Alexander Dennis Enviro500, Mercedes-Benz O405G and MAN NL323F buses.
