Route History

Service 903P duplicates the east loop of Service 903, serving between Woodlands MRT / Bus Interchange and Marsling Lane. Operated using private buses from Rui Feng Chartered Pte Ltd, the route helps to relieve frequent overcrowding on Service 903. It is the 12th PPSS service to be introduced, commencing operations on Tuesday, 13 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: Fares for Feeder Services are capped at 3.2km. Refer to Fare Table.

Fleet: Service 903P′s fleet fully comprises private buses from Rui Feng Chartered Pte Ltd.

  1. Undet the history content, this service is introduced as a PPSS route looping at Marsiling Lane, not Yishun Ave 3. Please change thanks.

    • Dear Li Xian,

      Yes, the student bus concession pass apply for all Peak Period Short Services, just like the parent feeder service itself.

  2. As far as I have noted, the bus does not allow standing passenger. However, I still see the bus driver allows people to board the bus. May I know what is the safety requirement educated to all the drivers? I was rejected by the bus driver to board, yet he still opened the door when another guy knocked on the door to board. It has ended up with more passengers boarding and standing in the bus. I think it is important for the bus driver to be strict when it comes to the safety concerns of the passengers. The bus driver should also know basic english in order to communicate with non-chinese passengers.
