Route History

Intratown Service 307 serves residential blocks, schools and public amenities along Choa Chu Kang North 5, Choa Chu Kang North 6, Choa Chu Kang St 62, Choa Chu Kang Ctrl, Teck Whye Ave and Teck Whye Lane, connecting them to Choa Chu Kang Town Centre and Yew Tee MRT. Its primary area of service is Choa Chu Kang Neighbourhoods 6 and 7 on the North Loop, and Neighbourhoods 1 and 2 on the South Loop.

Buses stop at Opp Choa Chu Kang Stn along Choa Chu Kang Avenue 4 before continuing on the South Loop, but does not call at Choa Chu Kang Interchange. A full trip of Service 307 will first ply the North Loop followed by the South Loop. Terminating trips will operate as Service 307E, indicating that the bus will no longer continue its journey on the North Loop after reaching Choa Chu Kang Interchange.

From Choa Chu Kang, passengers heading towards Yew Tee (Neighborhoods 6 and 7) should board the bus at Choa Chu Kang Interchange. Passengers heading towards Teck Whye (Neighborhoods 1 and 2) should board the bus at B01 Choa Chu Kang Ave 4 (Opp Choa Chu Kang Stn).

On 30th June 2014, a Peak period Short Service (PPSS) variant of this route, 307P, was introduced. It duplicates part of 307′s north loop (towards Yew Tee) and operates during peak hours only.

Formerly a Singapore Bus Service (SBS) route since the 1997, the route formed with the mergers of existing feeders 301 and 303. It was transferred to Trans-Island Bus Service (TIBS) in 1999 when areas of responsibility were exchanged between SBS and TIBS, and TIBS has been re-branded to SMRT. High capacity articulated buses are not deployed possibly due to a shortage of buses, and rigid buses are enough to cope on a daily basis.

During Eves of Public Holidays, last bus timings are extended to complement the extension of train operating hours.

  1. I would like to lodge a complaint against your buses 307. I am staying in Blk 633 Choa Chu Kang North 6. From my house, I can always hear loud screeching sound caused by your buses stepping hard on the brake. The sound is loud and piercings. I always wake up by your buses at 6 plus in the morning. It starts my day with a bad headache and stressed feeling. I am not sure whether it is your buses that lack of maintenance and/or your drivers that take this quiet residental neighborhood as a race course. Please look into it and resolve the noise pollution caused by your buses.
