Four bus services that are running parallel to several sections of the Downtown Line (DTL) will be amended and rerouted from Dec 12, 2021.
The Land Transport Authority (LTA) said in a Facebook post on Monday (Nov 22) that with the opening of new train lines like the DTL, bus services have to be amended to “reduce duplication of routes.”
It added that the amendments “ensure prudent use of taxpayer’s monies, while benefiting as many commuters as possible.”
