Bus Service 61 (SMRT Buses Pte Ltd)

Information in this article with effect from 16 Nov 2017.

Bus Service 61 is a trunk route between Bukit Batok and Eunos, via Ulu Pandan, Queenstown, Harbourfront, Chinatown, Bugis, Bendemeer, MacPherson and Ubi. It is among the longest bidirectional trunk routes in Singapore.

Fares: Service 61 charges regular Basic Bus Service Distance fares.

 

Service 61 is a lengthy inter-town trunk route that connects residential, suburban and city areas. Despite its great length, it does not ply any highways, making its distance the longest covered by any bidirectional trunk route.

The service shuttles commuters in and out of the City with many other alternative routes, including the Circle Line. Owing to its lengthy route and the absence of downroute departures, buses arrive at their destination at around 7 a.m. and therefore cannot benefit commuters travelling short distances.

Demand for this service is spread evenly and shuttles commuters for short distances at various points of the route. It is also the sole service at Commonwealth Drive and its surrounding housing estates.
