Launched on 9 March 2020, Bus Service 16M is a supplementary route of Service 16 that makes a slight detour by plying Jalan Bukit Merah (outside Bukit Merah Town Centre) before entering Bukit Merah Central, thus serving two additional pairs of bus stops. During its stipulated operating hours on Mondays to Saturdays (excluding Public Holidays) as outlined above, Service 16M operates on alternate trips with Service 16.

Apart from increasing accessibility to nearby community amenities (such as Bukit Merah Community Centre and Bukit Merah Polyclinic), the route gives upstream commuters the option to alight at Jalan Bukit Merah, offering easy transfer to many other bus services plying the Jalan Bukit Merah corridor.

    Then bus 16 should only operate on Sunday’s and PH. Or, bus 16 operates on weekdays and Saturdays, while bus 16M operates on Sunday’s and PH. Or could be something like bus 70 or 853.

      Thing is, the polyclinic doesn’t open on Sundays and PHs.

    So 16/M finally started deploying DDs.. I wonder how the service got DD clearance eventually as there were supposedly height restrictions in place at Joo Chiat Rd that prohibited DD deployment on 16..
