————————————————————————————————————————————

History:

  • 2006 (22 Dec): Introduced as a unidirectional night service from Marina Centre to Choa Chu Kang North to replace Nite Owl 181M
  • 2008 (31 Aug): Calls at bus stops within Bukit Batok before heading to Choa Chu Kang, covering lost sectors after the withdrawal of Nite Owl 8N. Enhanced to ply Jln Jurong Kechil and Bukit Batok East Ave 6 & 3/Central/West Ave 2 & 5/Road instead of BKE/Bukit Panjang Rd/Choa Chu Kang Rd, hence losing the Bukit Panjang sector.
