Service 38 was formed with the merger of two feeder routes, and provides inter-town links between Bedok South, Simei and Tampines East.

From Bedok South Road, Service 38 provides a quicker route to Bedok Interchange as compared to Feeder 229, and compliments Services 12, 12e and 47 with connections to Tanah Merah MRT, Simei and Tampines East. Along with Service 20, Service 38 links up most of Simei estate with Simei MRT.

As part of the DTL3 Bus Service Enhancements, Service 38 calls at a new pair of bus stops along Tampines Ave 2, at Tampines East MRT Station from 21 Oct 2017.
