Introduction of Service 16M
A new supplementary service, Service 16M, will be introduced on 9 March 2020. Similar to its parent Service 16, it will ply between Bedok Interchange and Bukit Merah Interchange, but will take an extended route to serve these two additional pairs of bus stops along Jalan Bukit Merah and Bukit Merah Central:
• In front of Bukit Merah Town Centre (10091) / Opposite of Bukit Merah Town Centre (10099)
• In front of Blk 161 (10651) / In front of Blk 1003 (10659)
With Service 16M, commuters will enjoy greater accessibility to amenities along Jalan Bukit Merah such as Bukit Merah Polyclinic.
Service 16M will operate daily except on Sundays and Public Holidays. From Bedok Interchange, it will operate from 6.00am to 2.40pm on weekdays and from 6.00am to 10.30am on Saturdays. From Bukit Merah Bus Interchange, it will be in service between 8.30am and 5.00pm on weekdays and from 8.30am to 1.15pm on Saturdays. Service 16M will be scheduled to operate on alternate trips with its parent Service 16.
Commuters who are travelling to Tiong Bahru MRT Station and wish to bypass the extended route of Service 16M can take Services 5 or 851. Alternatively, they may choose to wait for the next bus of Service 16.
