The Bukit Gombak HillV2 shuttle service was launched by Ms Low Yen Ling, Member of Parliament for the Choa Chu Kang GRC on 01 Jan 2015.
Residents living in the Bukit Gombak area submitted feedback to the Land Transport Authority (LTA) about the lack of bus services serving the area (the only bus service that calls at Bt Gombak MRT is SMRT Bus Service 945) , prompting LTA to introduce new bus service(s) to serve the area more. However, LTA rejected the proposal due to undisclosed reasons.
With the collaboration of the Bukit Gombak Grassroots Organisation and Far East Organisation (which recently opened a new shopping mall named HillV2 along Hillview Ave), the shuttle service was launched with a win-win situation for both parties, as Bukit Gombak & Hillview residents would now have a direct (shuttle) bus service from Bukit Gombak MRT station to their home as well as the new shopping mall.
To prevent the shuttle service from being used as a residential feeder route rather than a shopping mall connecting route, return trips from HillV2 shopping centre would not pick passengers towards Bukit Gombak MRT on the intermediate stops.
A higher capacity bus would be deployed subject to demand for this shuttle service.
Fares: This is a free shuttle service.
Fleet: The shuttle service is run by Westpoint Transit Pte Ltd minibuses. No standing is allowed onboard.
