Route History

Service 265P duplicates the middle section of Townlink 265, serving between Ang Mo Kio MRT / Interchange and Ang Mo Kio Neighbourhood 5. Operated using private buses from Bus-Plus Services Pte Ltd, the route helps to relieve frequent overcrowding on Service 265. It is the 11th PPSS service to be introduced, commencing operations on Tuesday, 6 January 2015.

Peak Period Short Services operate at least five trips per hour during Weekday AM and PM peak periods. This initiative taps on the resources of Private Bus Operators to run shorter bus services to augment the resources of the Public Transport Operators (PTOs).

Fare: Basic fares capped at 3.2km. See Fare Table.

Fleet: Service 265P′s fleet fully comprises private buses from Bus-Plus Services Pte Ltd.
