Route History

Intratown Service 812 serves residential blocks, schools and public amenities along Yishun Central, Yishun St 61, Yishun Ave 4, Yishun Ave 2, Yishun Ring Rd and Yishun Ave 3, connecting them to transport nodes at Yishun Town Centre, namely Yishun MRT and Bus Interchange. Its primary area of service is Yishun Neighbourhood 6 on the East Loop, and Neighbourhoods 1 and 7 on the West Loop. High capacity articulated buses are deployed on a daily basis due to high demand from Yishun residents.

The route serves schools such as Northland Primary, Chung Cheng High School (Yishun), Rainbow Centre – Yishun Park School, Jiemin Primary, Yishun Junior College and Naval Base Secondary. Other public amenities served include Khoo Teck Puat Hospital, Yishun Polyclinic, SAFRA Yishun Country Club and Chong Pang CC.

Service 812 operates in two loops, where buses will first ply the East Loop (via Yishun Ave 4) followed by the West Loop (via Yishun Ave 3). The 812 berth inside Yishun Temp Int is for the East Loop, while commuters heading towards the West Loop (via Yishun Ave 4) should board outside Yishun Temp Int at Bus Stop 59161 Opp Blk 201. Terminating trips will operate as Service 812E on the West Loop, indicating that the bus will terminate at Yishun Temp Int and no longer continue its journey on the East Loop.

During Eves of Public Holidays, last bus timings are extended to complement the extension of train operating hours.

In 2015, a Peak Period Short Service variant, 812P was launched. The route duplicated the West loop of Intratown 812. It was withdrawn in January 2017.

Fare: Distance based fares for Townlink Services are capped at 3.2km. Refer to Fare Table. Calculate your bus fare using LTA’s fare calculator on MyTransport.sg here.
