At the same time, SBS Transit’s Fast Forward 10e and 196e also offers peak hour connections between Upper East Coast / Marine Parade and Shenton Way at a cheaper price (~$2.10 adult card fare) while plying a similar route.

  1. Hi there, just some feedback for the 541 service. Over the past few months, there have been many occasions where the bus was entirely full by the time it reached bus stop number 5 “Upper East Coast Road (Bus stop opposite Evergreen Avenue)”, by 8.30 – 8.50am. It is a real shame that the bus is full at such an early stop.

    Was wondering if there is anything the company can do to meet the high demand for this great service? I recall at one stage two buses would run concurrently.

    Grateful for your consideration.

    Many thanks.


  2. I have been trying to catch the bus from its first stop (Synergy Hub) from Direction 2 in the evening peak hours. I have tried to adhere to your schedule above however it seems rather different from the times the bus actually shows up. It seems a little erratic.
    Can you please confirm the actual timings please.

  3. Hi there,

    Just some ongoing feedback re the capacity of the 541. It is a great service, however due to high demand it seems to fill to full capacity before the Upper East Coast Road stop (Bus stop opposite Evergreen Avenue), which is very early on in its journey. Is there is chance the service could increase its capacity during peak hours eg between 8.30 – 9am?

    Many thanks
