History:

  • 1970s: Original route from Paya Lebar Airport to Bukit Merah
  • 1983: Extended to World Trade Centre Ter (now HarbourFront Int)
  • 1993: Amended to terminate at Eunos Int, transferred to Bukit Batok Depot and subsequently to Ayer Rajah Bus Park.
  • 2012 (03 Dec): Designated wheelchair-accessible bus route (WAB)

Service 93 is a supplementary inter-town route connecting HarbourFront, Queensway, Farrer, Braddel, Bartly, Upper Paya Lebar and Eunos, plying major roads associated with the Outer Ring Road System (ORRS). Demand is medium to low throughout off-peak hours, but demand from Ubi and Kaki Bukit industrial estates is decent during peak hours.

With the opening of the Circle Line between 2009 and 2011, demand for this route has shifted to the MRT network, and double-deck buses are no longer deployed on weekdays. Today, the route operates at low frequencies throughout the day.

Since most of the route plies main roads, average journey speed is faster than regular non-express trunk routes, however passengers may need to transfer buses from housing estates to main roads before boarding this service.
