Route History

Introduced in 1995, Service 15 is a residential inter-town route serving between Pasir Ris, Tampines, Kaki Bukit, Telok Kurau and Marine Parade. Calling at Eunos MRT station, the route serves residential estates and public amenities around Telok Kurau and Marine Parade with connections to Eunos MRT. Additionally, the route serves Temasek Polytechnic with connections to Tampines MRT, and also connects Tampines Regional Centre to Pasir Ris as an alternative to the MRT.

Demand for this route is low during off-peak hours but heavy during the peak hours, owing to the many industries it serves around Kaki Bukit and student demand from Temasek Polytechnic.

Service 15 is one of two services to loop at the Marine Parade Road roundabout, the other being Service 966. It has been a wheelchair-accessible bus route (WAB) since 03 Dec 2009. It received additional buses under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP) progressively from 2013 onwards.
