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.

Service 68 should be a non-loop route like Service 3 when Tampines North Bus Interchange opens, it should start at Pasir Ris Interchange, then loop at Tampines North Bus Interchange (when it opens), then continue its route to loop at Tampines Interchange, then head again towards Tampines North Bus Interchange in a loop, then end its route at Pasir Ris Interchange. To make it shorter, the word equation would be (Pasir Ris Interchange > Tampines North Bus Interchange (Loop) > Tampines Interchange (Loop) > Tampines North Bus Interchange (Loop) > Pasir Ris Interchange.
68 used to be operated by SBS Transit between Tampines Bus Interchange & Tampines St 92 until the late-2000s (to serve ITE’s Tampines campus, until it was replaced by ITE College East I think)(https://sgwiki.com/wiki/History_of_Services_61_-_70#Service_68)
