In a very unusual move, SMRT deployed a couple of bendy buses on the 171 over the weekend. This was in conjunction with the PC Show 2009 being held at the Suntec City convention halls and the expected crowds it would bring.
All bendy buses deployed were from Ang Mo Kio Depot, which is also running all the wheelchair-accessible Mercedes Benz OC500LEs on the service. Service 171 is a dual-depot controlled service, with minority control by Woodlands Depot.
Service 171 runs between Yishun and Marina Centre via Mandai, Bukit Panjang, Bukit Timah and Orchard Road. The company has just announced that the service will call at a new pair of bus stops outside and opposite the Mandai Crematorium & Columbarium along Mandai Avenue, the only bus stops along the road.
