Service 812P duplicates the west loop of Intratown 812, serving between Yishun MRT / Interchange and Yishun Avenue 3. Operated using private buses from Bus-Plus Services Pte Ltd, the route helps to relieve frequent overcrowding on Service 812. It is the 14th PPSS service to be introduced, commencing operations alongside Service 811P on Tuesday, 20 January 2015.
Due to the opening of Yishun Temporary Bus Interchange from 14 Mar 2015, Commuters taking 812P are to board at Bus Stop 59161 Opp Blk 201 Yishun Central near Yishun Temp Int Berth 7.
