Merger of SBS Transit's 103 & 103M on 13th Feb 2011

On 13th Feb 2011, 103M was merged with the main 103 route which now calls at 14 new bus stops along its merged route, plying Seletar Aerospace Drive and a section of West Camp Road.

It was formerly known as 103W, before renamed as 103M. The route spans from Serangoon to West Camp Road (Loop)

According to SBS Transit's press release : "
This route merger is due to road changes by the Authorities where another section of West Camp Road will be permanently removed while the bus stop along Piccadilly before East Camp Gate will be abolished.
With the road removal, the two pairs of bus stops along the affected road will be re-sited to the adjoining Seletar Aerospace Drive to minimise inconvenience to commuters. There will be no change to the operating hours of Service 103 which will ply from Serangoon Interchange and loop at West Camp Road (ST Airport Services)."
