Vice President for SMRT Buses Ltd, Tan Kian Heong said: "We are pleased to have the opportunity to operate yet another new parallel bus service that directly connects the heartlands and the city. Utilising the Central Expressway (CTE), Seletar Expressway (SLE) and with less bus stops along its route, this parallel bus service enhances the overall travelling experience of our customers by offering them not only more convenience when commuting to and from the CBD, but also presents them an alternative travel option on top of other bus services and the MRT."
