Bus Service 851e is a Limited-stop Express Bus Service which offers quicker journeys for commuters at  Yishun, Khatib and Ang Mo Kio, linking them with the Central areas of Little India, Bugis, Chinatown and Outram Park. Operating throughout the day, it only calls at selected bus stops served by its parent Bus Service 851, and charges Express Fares as a result.

In between Ang Mo Kio and Little India, the bus will ply an express sector along the Central Expressway (CTE) in both directions. In addition, it does not call at bus stops along Lentor Avenue.  The route operates daily at 20-minute intervals during the peak hours, and 30-minute intervals during the off-peak hours.

Service 851e is the sixth new route to be introduced under the Bus Contracting Model (BCM) after Service 974, as well as the third limited-stop service to operate daily. The use of the lowercase e as the service suffix has its origins from Fast-Forward services introduced by SBS Transit in 2005, which are limited-stop services operating only during the peak hours. SBS Transit continues to use the Fast-Forward branding for Service 851e.

The scheduled run-time for Service 851e between Yishun and Outram Park is about 15 minutes faster than Service 851.

    My, SBS Transit should have introduced a regular 850 that operates daily, too! And make 850E a Fast-Forward service.

    This service should have been introduced years or even decade ago during Tibs/ SMRT era. Why only now?

      Hope the bus 851E can extend to the bus stop at Outram MRT station bus stop B06011 because there are quite a number of staff living in Yishun/Khatib and Ang Mo kio working there in SGH compound.
