Service 43M is a supplementary route of Service 43, duplicating its parent service between Punggol Bus Interchange and Serangoon Central. It relieves demand and improves reliability of bus services for commuters along Service 43’s most crowded stretches of route. It was launched on 16 November 2014.

The service operates daily, serving residential areas around Punggol Way, Sengkang East Road, Sengkang Central, Buangkok Green, Yio Chu Kang Road and Serangoon Central. The service provides better access to key transport nodes such as Punggol and Serangoon Bus Interchanges, Punggol, Buangkok and Serangoon MRT Stations, amenities such as Ren Ci Hospital & Medicare Centre, Serangoon Sports & Recreation Centre and NEX as well as schools such as Hougang Secondary and Hougang Primary.

Short Trip Service 43A, which plied from Buangkok Green to Serangoon Central, was withdrawn after the introduction of 43M due to duplicating sectors. In addition, evening downroutes of Service 43 which started from Serangoon Central to Punggol Interchange were also withdrawn.

While Service 43M serves Boundary Road, it originally skipped the bus stop outside Serangoon Stadium (63149 S’goon Stadium) as its parent Service 43 does not serve that stretch of road. Service 43M was later amended to call at that stop from 24 Jan 2016. All bus stops along Service 43M’s route are also served by Service 43.
