Service 293P duplicates the East Loop of Townlink 293, serving between Tampines MRT and Interchange with Tampines North and Neighbourhood 4. Operated using private coaches from Travel GSH Pte Ltd, the route helps to relieve frequent overcrowding on Service 291. It is the 7th PPSS service to be introduced along with 291P, commencing service on the same day.
