Route History

Service 10 is a trunk route spanning East and West, connecting the housing estates and suburbs of Tampines, Upper East Coast, East Coast and Pasir Panjang with the City areas of HarbourFront, Shenton Way and Nicoll Highway. Much of its current route has been retained ever since the 1970s.

Weekday peak-hour demand is strong, with many residents at East Coast and Old Airport relying on this service and its Express variant (10e) to commute between home and the Shenton Way business district. Demand between Kent Ridge and the CBD is weaker. Before the opening of the Circle Line Stage 4/5, this service was highly popular for students of NUS, commuting between HarbourFront and Kent Ridge.

Off-peak demand is moderate to weak, mostly from shuttling residents between HarbourFront, East Coast, Upper East Coast and Tampines. Weekend frequencies are generally poor as SBS Transit adds resources preferentially to Service 14, which also plies East Coast but connects to the Orchard shopping district.

Trivia: Service 10 is one of only three trunk routes to start at 5:00am (alongside Service 119 and 154), but the only one to start at 5:00am daily.
