In the 1980s, Lim Chu Kang Road End Bus Terminal was served by Service 172 and 206 which terminated there. In 1993, a new Service 175 was introduced there and 206 was withdrawn shortly after. When 172 was shortened to Chua Chu Kang in 1999, 175 became the only bus service to use the terminal. On that same day, 172 and 175 were transferred from SBS to TIBS.
Service 175 needed Lim Chu Kang as a terminus because it looped at Upper Bukit Timah Road. When 175 was amended to terminate at Bukit Panjang Interchange and renumbered as 975 in 2005, the terminal was downgraded to a single bus stop. Today, the bus stop serves as a turnaround point for Service 975, but still carries the name Lim Chu Kang Bus Terminal. As a bonus, a portable toilet is permanently stationed there for bus drivers and members of the public.
In 2013, the bus stop was renamed to B00 Lim Chu Kang Road, Police Coast Guard (and subsequently changed to B01A). Service 975 continues to serve the bus stop; however the Lim Chu Kang Ter name was no longer used.
