Route History

Service 63 is a trunk route connecting the residential estates of Kampong Ubi, MacPherson, Tiong Bahru and Bukit Timah to the central areas of Bugis, Clarke Quay and Chinatown. It is an important route between the Ubi Industrial Estate and Eunos MRT for many workers, and it also connects Rumah Tinggi and its surrounding Redhill estates with connections to Tiong Bahru MRT station.

With few services serving the Rumah Tinggi estate, this service links the estate to Tiong Bahru MRT. Also, demand between Ubi Industrial Estate and Eunos MRT is high during peak hours, and Service 63M helps to relieve some of that loading.

Double-decker buses are not deployed due to possible route limitations at Ubi and Rumah Tinggi.

Rumah Tinggi Terminal:

Although Service 63 is listed as a loop route, it unofficially terminates at Rumah Tinggi Terminal. Formally a proper terminal, it has been downgraded to a looping point with parking spaces for two buses. Bus drivers do not end their trip there; they take a short break before continuing off. Passengers are told to alight and re-board the bus after the driver’s break.

    63 should be amended and extended to Bukit Merah Bus Interchange. A new feeder service from Bukit Merah can be introduced to loop at Rumah Tinggi.

      I think the route should remain. A new route could loop at Rumah Tinggi from Bukit Merah instead. Anyways, Land Transport Guru is not LTA so even if you post your opinions here, LTA will not know. YOu may send your opinion to LTA here: feedback@lta.gov.sg
