  1. Hi, want to inquire about the frequency of 658 as looking at the site it is not clear if this run only twice in the morning or until 8:30? Also can we use ezlink to pay or is it only cash.

    • Two trips are operated on weekday mornings (7.40am and 7.55am). Both Ez-link card and cash payment are accepted as buses will be equipped with card readers.

  2. Hi, I’ve been taking your bus services at 7.45am from Bedok reservoir to my office every morning. Recent weeks, there’s been a change of drivers. The uncle that’s driving the bus smokes in the bus and the smell is very strong when I boarded from the 2nd stop.
    I hope your company will take action and advised him not to smoke in the bus. I do not wish to inhale second hand smoke
    Do not hesitate to contact me at (Number Withheld) if you require further details.

    Looking forward to your prompt attention in this matter.


  3. Why is only EZ Link cards accepted on City Direct Service? Isn’t the government encouraging cashless? What if I don’t have an EZ Link card?

  4. Please tidy up the frequency. It states for Direction 2, it operates from 1700 to 1930 with freq of 15mins. But it also states the trips are 1820 and 1835. What does it mean?

  5. Are The bus drivers of 585 all newbies?
    lately, travel time seems to be too slow coz bus speed looks like only 40km/hr. It seems to me that driver just learned to drive.
