    • from wat i can remember, cos i saw the 2 buses stop at Alexandra Hospital and i took a quick mental note of the route from the plate. from my calculation, one bus from each service leaves PSA Building at 5.45pm.

      573 (Alexandra Rd - Yio Chu Kang MRT) Fare: $2.00
      Alexandra Rd -> Upp Thomson Rd -> Ang Mo Kio Ave 3 -> Ang Mo Kio Ave 6 (Yio Chu Kang MRT)

      571 (Alexandra Rd - Sengkang MRT) Fare: $2.50
      Alexandra Rd -> Jln Bt Merah -> CTE -> Lor Chuan -> Ang Mo Kio Ave 1 -> Boundary Rd -> Yio Chu Kang Rd -> Hougang Ave 2 -> Hougang Ave 8 -> Hougang Ave 10 -> Punggol Rd

    • How about any private buses? I think this 105 route proposed below will take quite some time

      How much time does it take for the 571 service to reach alexandra road from Ang Mo Kio Ave 1. Where is the bus stop for this and what are the service times in the morning and evening?

      571 (Alexandra Rd - Sengkang MRT) Fare: $2.50
      Alexandra Rd -> Jln Bt Merah -> CTE -> Lor Chuan -> Ang Mo Kio Ave 1 -> Boundary Rd -> Yio Chu Kang Rd -> Hougang Ave 2 -> Hougang Ave 8 -> Hougang Ave 10 -> Punggol Rd

      How far is it from Alexandra road to Ayer Rajah avenue (INSEAD) and how does one reach INSEAD from Alexandra road?

      Many thanks

      To reach INSEAD from Alexandra Rd (between AYE and Telok Blangah Rd), take service 166 and alight along North Buona Vista Rd before it turns into Dover Rd.

      I dunno about the private services there.

    • Hi all
      This is an urgent query to establish the best way of reaching INSEAD from
      lorong chuan/boundary road/AMK Ave 1.
      I stay near New Tech park. Does 572 go to Bukit Merah or is it 571? How do I reach INSEAD from Bukit Merah? Is it easier/faster to get to INSEAD from Alexandra road?
      Any one with an idea of when the service starts in the morning, what time it stops in the evening and the rough time of journey to AMK/Bukit Timah
      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks

      i'm not sure of the bus svc number but i suppose the only 57x svc there will go to alexandra rd. enquire with the bus driver to confirm tis. it shld start from around 7am from hougang, so it could reach by 7.20am?

      from opposite alexandra hospital, take svc 14 to reach INSEAD. alight at dover rd (opp fairfield methodist sch/outside blk 32). the journey is expected to take 6mins.

      i noe of both 571 & 573 will arrive at alexandra rd jus at about 5.48pm outside alexandra rd, presumably starting svc outside NOL at 5.45pm.

    • Hi,

      can i just check if it is possible to contact the private bus pple to take on a new route which is equivalent to the route that sbs express bus 507 is taking now? There is really a need for the bus to go on this route as there are really alot of commuters. can we give them a tot for consideration? how can we feedback to them? since we cannot rely on sbs, we have to look for other alternatives.

      pls advise. Thanks!

      i'm not sure, but it is up to the private bus operators to come up with the 507 route, just as they had done with the defunct 149. unlike NEL where the private bus operators are not explicitly told not to ply and hence duplicate the NEL, this time round i can see 507 coming back as a private bus service. the question is, of course, do they need to apply to PTC to approve its route.
