Service 10e is a Fast-Forward variant of Service 10, plying between Bedok Road and the Central Business District (CBD). Operating during the peak hours, It offers quicker journey times for commuters travelling between the City and the housing estates at East Coast more quickly than its parent route (Service 10) during the peak hours. It also charges express fares.

Serving Bedok Road, Upp East Coast Road, East Coast Road and Mountbatten Road, the route proceeds to skip all stops until Nicoll Highway, using the full stretch of Mountbatten Road instead plying Tanjong Katong Road and Old Airport Road. Depending on traffic conditions, buses can ply different routes along the express sectors, and some drivers choose to follow the Service 10 routing (via Old Airport Road) while skipping all stops.

By plying the full stretch of Mountbatten Road, Service 10e follows the old routing of Service 10 before it was amended to Tanjong Katong and Old Airport in 1994.
