Upper East Coast Terminal was built in the early 2000s as a layover for bus services plying Upper East Coast Road. Shortly after opening, it absorbed Service 13 and 853# from the demolished Marine Parade Bus Terminal. In 2005, Service 43 and 48 were introduced, and in 2006, Service 45 was introduced, and Service 506 was extended here from Bedok Interchange. In 2011, Service 48 was extended to Bedok North Depot and no longer calls at this terminal.
Originally, this terminal was built with metal queuing berths similar to those used at bus interchanges, which were troublesome to get through, occupied a lot of space and unnecessary for a terminal with low human traffic. The metal queuing berths have since been removed and replaced with concrete benches. Bollards have also been installed.
Upper East Coast Terminal has toilets, and a SBS Transit’s driver’s lounge. Currently, only the interchange office for SBS Transit is staffed, with a timekeeper on duty,

Upper East Coast Terminal Expansion
In April 2015, LTA called for a tender to expand the existing Upper East Coast Terminal. A further 15 parking spaces will be added to the current 27 parking lots. This will be achieved through an expansion in space of 60% from the current 0.6ha. Construction of the expansion will start in Q3 2015 after LTA has awarded the tender. The expanded terminal will allow for about 4 to 5 new bus services under BSEP.
