Route History

Introduced in 2005, Service 43 is an inter-town route connecting residential towns of Punggol, Sengkang, Buangkok, Serangoon, Marine Parade and Upper East Coast. Serving many areas of high commuter traffic, this service encounters moderate to high demand throughout the day.

This service compliments Service 76 between Serangoon and Marine Parade, as well as the Circle Line between Paya Lebar and Serangoon. Peak demand is especially high between Paya Lebar and Marine Parade, as well as between Serangoon MRT and Buangkok Green. As such, Shortworking Trip 43A and downroutes from Serangoon MRT towards Punggol help relieve demand off this stretch during weekday peak hours.

Service 43M is a supplementary route of Service 43, launched on Sunday, 16 November 2014 duplicating its parent service between Punggol Bus Interchange and Serangoon Central. It relieves demand and improves reliability of bus services for commuters along Service 43′s most crowded stretches of route.
