SMRT Bus Service 825 serves landed houses and condominiums within Lentor Estate, connecting residents to and from Yio Chu Kang MRT and Bus Interchange. It operates only on weekdays and Saturday mornings. Outside of Service 825’s operating hours, there are no bus services serving within Lentor Estate and residents have to walk in from Yio Chu Kang Road.

Operated by minibuses from SMRT’s charter division Strides Transportation (formerly Bus-Plus), Service 825 is a unique example of a public bus route operated with minibuses. As such, it charges basic bus fares in line the prevailing fare model set by the Public Transport Council and is subject to similar basic service standards required of public bus services.

Bus Service 825 will serve the upcoming Lentor MRT Station along the Thomson-East Coast Line.

Previously, SMRT operated Premium Bus Service 529 which plied the exact same route as Service 825 but charged Premium fares, operating during Saturday afternoons and evenings. It was discontinued and withdrawn after 31 Dec 2016.
