Bukit Merah Bus Interchange commenced operations on 14 February 1981, serving the Bukit Merah estate. Located at Bukit Merah Central, feeder bus services connect it with residential estates around Telok Blangah and Bukit Purmei. Sometime after its opening (likely in the 1990s-2000s), an overhead bridge over Bukit Merah Central was added, along with a driver’s canteen on the second floor.
The layout of the interchange has changed little since its opening over 30 years ago. Between 2013 and 2014, Addition & Alteration Works (Contract VT360) were carried out by JS Metal Pte. Ltd. at a contract sum of S$1,183,200.00, which covered general refurbishment work and re-roofing of the shelters extending over the boarding berths.
