Service 133M was an intra-city route variant between Shenton Way, Marina Bay Sands (MBS) and Suntec City, supplementing the demand for Bus Services 97, 106, 133 & 502 between the above service areas. The route variant was first launched in 2010, following bus service changes prior to the opening of MBS, linking the new Integrated Resort (IR) to the newly opened Promenade MRT station at the time.

Initially operating daily, its operating hours were significantly reduced just six months after its launch in October 2010, running during the evenings on Saturdays, Sundays & Public Holidays only to complement existing bus links in the City.

In January 2012, the Circle Line Extension (CCLe) between Promenade and Marina Bay opened for passenger service, directly duplicating the route of this service. Due to deteriorating demand, Service 133M was eventually discontinued four months later. Its last day of operation was on Sunday, 20 May 2012.

Fare: Charged distance-related fares for trunk services. Refer to Bus Fares.

Fleet: Service 133M’s fleet comprised of Scania K230UB buses from Service 133 during its operational hours.
