Introduced in 1995, Service 15 is an inter-town route serving between Pasir Ris, Tampines Central, Tampines West, Kaki Bukit, Jalan Eunos, Telok Kurau and Marine Parade. Calling at Eunos MRT Station, the route serves residential estates and public amenities around Telok Kurau and Marine Parade with connections to Eunos MRT. Additionally, the route serves Temasek Polytechnic with connections to Tampines MRT, and also connects Tampines Regional Centre to Pasir Ris as an alternative to the MRT.
Demand for this route is moderate during off-peak hours but is very heavy during the peak hours, owing to the many industries it serves around Kaki Bukit and student demand from Temasek Polytechnic.
Service 15 is one of two services to loop at the Marine Parade Road roundabout, the other being Service 966. It has been a wheelchair-accessible bus route (WAB) since 03 Dec 2009.
As part of the Downtown Line Stage 3 construction, Service 15 was diverted to ply Jalan Tenaga & Jalan Damai in lieu of the closed section of Kaki Bukit Ave 1 from Aug 2011. It resumed plying the full stretch of Kaki Bukit Ave 1 from Apr 2016 onwards.
