SBS Transit Service 151 plys between Hougang Central Bus Interchange and Kent Ridge Bus Terminal, operated by the public transit system SBS Transit in Singapore. The service offers an efficient link for residents staying at Hougang Avenue 3, Sennett Estate, Jalan Toa Payoh to schools along Bukit Timah Road, Clementi Road and Kent Ridge Crescent.

The service was once labelled as being unable to have double deckers deployed due to the route restrictions and uneven terrains along Kent Ridge Crescent. However, four Volvo B9TL was finally deployed cater the huge load during peak hours in 2008.
