Somapah Interchange was opened in 1982. Located at the present-day Singapore Expo carpark (near the junction of Upp Changi Rd East and Upp Changi Rd), it used to house services terminating at Upp Changi Rd 15.5km (services 10, 11, 12, 14 and 155) and also functions as an interchange for Changi Airport services (services 392 and 393).


In 1983, with the introduction of the new SBS Changi Airport Bus Plan, services 392 and 393 were withdrawn and Somapah Interchange was downgraded to Somapah Terminal. By 1986, there were only four services terminating at Somapah Terminal, namely services 11, 12, 14 and 155.


With the closure of Somapah Terminal in 1989, service 11 was withdrawn and services 12, 14 and 155 were relocated to Pasir Ris, Changi Village and Marine Parade respectively.
