Route Amendment for Service 170
The route of Service 170, which operates between Queen Street Terminal and Larkin Terminal (Johor Bahru), will be amended around the Beauty World area, with effect from Sunday, 11 April 2021. This will provide better connectivity to the Downtown Line Beauty World MRT station and amenities along Upper Bukit Timah Road, such as Pei Hwa Presbyterian Primary School, Bukit Timah Shopping Centre and eateries along Cheong Chin Nam Road. Commuters along Upper Bukit Timah Road can also enjoy two-way bus connectivity options.
The route of Service 170 will be amended towards Dunearn Road to ply along Upper Bukit Timah Road, which it currently does in the opposite direction. It will serve these two additional bus stops along the amended route:
- Beauty World Station Exit A (42099) and
- Opposite Pei Hwa Presbyterian Primary School (42079)
With the route change, it will cease to travel along Jalan Anak Bukit and skip the two bus stops located along the road:
- Opposite Beauty World Centre (42109) and
- Opposite Bukit Timah Plaza (42089)
Commuters travelling to or from the skipped bus stops can continue to take alternative Services 66, 77, 157, 174, 184, 852, 961/961M or 970. To access the amended Service 170 to other destinations not served by the alternative services, commuters can consider walking to Upper Bukit Timah Road or make a same-stop connection between the amended Service 170 and the alternative services.
