These 13 bus services will run from 12.00am to 6.00am, at intervals of 15 minutes, and provide connections to major residential areas, such as Jurong, Bukit Batok, Yishun, Ang Mo Kio, Sengkang and Tampines.

Five trunk services (SBS Transit 32, 124, 145 and SMRT 190 and 851) will also operate on extended hours till 6.00am at 15 minute intervals to provide additional connections from the city to the heartlands.
