Service 400 serves the Marina South and Marina Coastal area with connections to Marina Bay MRT, Downtown MRT and Shenton Way. Before the mass redevelopment of Marina South, much of the area was a park and service 400 provided the bus connections needed. Between 2005 and 2009, it was designated as a Parks Service, serving the former Marina City Park and Marina Padang.

In recent years, the construction of the Circle Line Extension and Downtown Line have diminished the role of Service 400 as a crucial connecting route in the Marina South area; however it still receives demand from shuttling passengers between Tanjong Pagar, Downtown and Marina Bay MRT stations to Marina Barrage and Gardens by the Bay (Bay South).

With the End of the On-Demand Public Bus trial, Service 400 was extended to serve Marina South Pier & Marina Bay Cruise Centre along Marina Coastal Drive, merging with Service 402 from 16 June 2019. The operating hours and frequency for Service 400 were also revised.

    Service 400’s demand is really low during weekdays, and will probably drop even further when TEL Stage 3 opens in 2022. LTA can consider merging 400 with service 123M and extend it to HarbourFront Int via Cantonment Link, Cantonment Road, Outram Road and Tiong Bahru Road. Imo Shenton Way bus terminal can be anchored by Seletar Bus Package instead.
