Service 68 serves as a residential trunk route connecting the estates of Pasir Ris West and Tampines North. It serves residential developments along Elias Rd, Pasir Ris St 71 and Tampines Concourse with enhanced connectivity to transport nodes at Pasir Ris and Tampines, and key amenities such as the Tampines Retail Park (Courts, Giant, IKEA), Our Tampines Hub, Tampines Mall, Tampines One and White Sands Shopping Mall. It was launched on 1 April 2018.

The route is operated by Go-Ahead Singapore under the Loyang Bus Package. It was slated to be launched in April 2017, but later delayed to April 2018, likely as a result of new roads under construction in Tampines North Estate, such as Tampines Avenue 11 and Tampines Avenue 6 (Extension).

In tandem with the surrounding developments in the Tampines North Estate, 3 more pairs of bus stops were added in 2019 to serve the Build-to-order (BTO) flats of Tampines Greenview, Tampines Greenweave, Tampines Greenridges and Tampines Greenverge along Tampines Avenue 6.
