forget about 969.. 168 is a hour + from woodlands to tampines library... if mrt can reach in 1 hour, then mrt is faster..

Not really. Depending on what time of the day you're at, the bus roads would take different times to reach

Either way, 168 is still the fastest. It goes from Woodlands to Innova JC, then SLE all the way till Tampines Ikea, then to the library. If the MRT is your destination, drop off at the stop AFTER the library, cross the overhead bridge and reach the MRT. The longest I've ever took was one hour 15 minutes.

969 would cut through Yishun (which would force it to stop many many times) and the MRT is... well.. not advisable. You would have to travel about 50 minutes to City Hall, then transfer and another 20 to 30 minutes to Tampines. No guarantees you'll even get STANDING ROOM =/

Bus would be faster...

Take 969 if you want to stop at interchange..
Take 168 you will alight at library that side if i am not wrong.

I take 969 every morning from wdl to tamp

Bus is faster, even if there is traffic jam, it wouldn't take as long as the train trip.

definitely bus is faster..
168 is a better choice..
969 will be taking quite long cos it goes to yishun first before turning into the expressway..
