History:

  • 2012 (12 Mar): Introduced from Eunos Interchange and looping at Circuit Rd. Being a subroute of Service 63, it was already wheel-chair accessible (WAB) on introduction. With the introduction of Service 63M, the Shortworking Trip 63A (Eunos to Aljunied MRT) was withdrawn.
  • 2014 (13 Jul): Converted to full day service under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP)
  • 2014 (28 Sep): Calls at an additional bus stop along Ubi Ave 2, in front of Automobile
    Megamart
  • 2016 (16 Oct): Amended to ply Circuit Link instead of Lor Bengkok.

Service 63M is a supplementary route of Service 63, helping to ease high demand for Service 63 between Eunos MRT and the industrial estates around Ubi. It originally operated only during weekday AM and PM Peak hours, and from 12:10am to 12:25am daily, and two additional trips out of Eunos Interchange after the last bus of Service 63 has departed.
