Formerly designated as a Parks service in 2005 (serving Pasir Ris Park and Sungei Api Api), it was reverted back to a normal trunk route in 2009.

Fare: Charges fares for regular trunk services. See Bus Fares for exact fares.

Fleet: Service 403′s fleet comprises Scania K230UB buses, with additional Mercedes-Benz Citaro buses added under the BSEP scheme.
