Formerly designated as a Parks service in 2005 (serving East Coast Park), it was reverted back to a normal trunk route in 2009. The route graphic produced by SBS Transit reflects Guillemard Road, which was served only between 2006 and 2008 when part of Old Airport Road was closed for Dakota Station construction (Circle MRT Line).
