Service 293P duplicates the East Loop of Townlink 293, serving between Tampines MRT and Interchange with Tampines North and Neighbourhood 4. Operated using private coaches from Travel GSH Pte Ltd, the route helps to relieve frequent overcrowding on Service 291. It is the 7th PPSS service to be introduced along with 291P, commencing service on the same day.

In addition to Townlink 293, 293P also compliments Service 28 and 29 for part of its route.

Peak Period Short Services operate at least five trips per hour during Weekday AM and PM peak periods. This initiative taps on the resources of Private Bus Operators to run shorter bus services to augment the resources of the Public Transport Operators (PTOs).


With the transition to the Bus Contracting Model (GCM), PPSS 293P was withdrawn from 1 Sep 2016. Additional special departures from Tampines Int plying the East Loop only during weekdays AM & PM Peak Hours were added to replace this service. More information at Changes to PPSS.
