Route History

Intratown Service 913 serves residential blocks, schools and public amenities along Woodlands Ave 7, Woodlands Ave 6, Woodlands Circle, Marsling Rise, Marsling Rd and Woodlands Centre Rd, connecting them to Woodlands Regional Centre and key transport nodes such as Woodlands Regional Bus Interchange, Woodlands MRT station and Admiralty MRT station. Its primary area of service is Woodlands Neighbourhood 7 on the East Loop, and Marsling estate / Woodlands Centre on the West Loop. High capacity articulated buses are deployed on a daily basis due to high demand from residents in the area.

The route serves schools such as Admiralty Primary School, Evergreen Primary School, Woodlands Secondary School and Marsling Secondary School. Other public amenities served include Woodlands Mart, 888 Plaza, Woodlands Town Garden and Woodlands Train Checkpoint.

Service 913 operates in two loops, where buses will first ply the East Loop (via Woodlands Circle) followed by the West Loop (via Woodlands Centre Rd), while calling at Woodlands Interchange between loops. Terminating trips will operate as Service 913E on the West Loop, indicating that the bus will terminate at Woodlands Int and no longer continue its journey on the East Loop.

There are two separate queue berths at Woodlands Interchange for Intratown 913; passengers should check their direction of travel before boarding the bus. During Eves of Public Holidays, last bus timings will be extended to complement the extension of train operating hours.
