The bus stop was first put into operation on 5 November 1989, with the introduction of Service M2 between Jalan Kembangan and Opera Estate (Loop) in tandem with the opening of Kembangan MRT station. The service was later renumbered to Service 42, on 5 October 1997.
On 28 February 2021, Service 135 was amended to terminate at Jalan Kembangan as a bidirectional service, bringing a second bus service to this bus stop. To cope with the additional buses, new bus bays were constructed in late 2020, adding three bus lots that extended beyond the existing bus stop. Pavement was also laid beside the bus bays, so that commuters can board buses from the new bus lots.
As this bus stop is not designated as a bus terminal, the bus stop is cited under the Road Traffic (Bus Layover Zone (Kembangan) — Exemption) Order 2021 to facilitate the layover of buses at the new additional kerbside lots. The exemption allows for the bus parking and passenger boarding at the bus layover zone.
Specifically, the Exemption Order grants exemptions to the following rules:
- Rule 22(g) of the Road Traffic Rules (R 20)
No person shall park a vehicle within 9 metres of a bus stop — (i) from the edge of the yellow demarcated box; or (ii) from the tip of a bus bay, except when the vehicle breaks down owing to a defect in the vehicle or its tyres;
- Rule 29(a) of the Road Traffic (Public Service Vehicles) (Vocational Licences and Conduct of Drivers, Conductors, Trishaw Riders and Passengers) Rules (R 8)
A licensee, when acting as an omnibus driver, must not stop the omnibus at any place for the purpose of picking up or setting down passengers other than at a bus terminus or a bus-stop provided or appointed for such purpose
The order came into operation on 28 February 2021, the same day when Bus Service 135 was amended to terminate at Jalan Kembangan. Other roadside bus terminals, namely Ghim Moh Bus Terminal and Sims Place Bus Terminal, are formally designated as bus terminals and do not require such exemptions to legislation.
