Service 118 was launched on 20th December 2015, and along with the launch of Service 47, marked the start of operations of the new Changi Business Park Bus Terminal.

The route benefits commuters with improved connections between Punggol, Tampines West and Changi Business Park. Prior to the launch of Service 118, existing Premium Services 593 and 744 also originate and terminate at both Punggol and Changi Business Park which operate during peak hours only and charge a $3 flat fare. Service 118 provides a cheaper alternative for Changi Business Park commuters.

Plying the TPE, Service 118 calls at the Tampines Expressway (Punggol Road) Bus Interchange, facilitating transfers to other bus services along the TPE corridor. It also serves Temasek Polytechnic and ITE College East, providing additional connectivity to students and staff. As such, Bus Service 118 encounters very high demand during the peak periods from the educational institutions it serves.

Service 118 is part of the 25 routes that the Go-Ahead Group took over from SBS Transit under the Loyang Bus Package as part of the Bus Contracting Model.

Amendment to better serve Expo MRT Station

As part of the Downtown Line Stage 3 Bus Service Enhancements, Service 118 was amended to ply Changi Business Park Ave 1 and Changi South Ave 1 instead of Changi South Ave 2 from 21 Oct 2017. The amendment enhances connectivity to the Downtown Line and East West Line Expo Station for Changi Business Park commuters.
