Service 855 is an inter-town route serving between the housing estates of Yishun, Farrer, Bukit Merah and Lower Delta, and the suburban areas of Lornie and Upper Thomson, connecting them to HarbourFront. The route is frequented as a popular connection between various housing estates, notably between Yishun – Upp Thomson and Bukit Merah – HarbourFront. Its sector between Bukit Merah, Lower Delta and HarbourFront is well received due to high passenger demand and lack of alternative routes. On a whole, the route encounters moderate demand throughout the day, and high capacity double-deck / articulated buses are not deployed on a daily basis.

The catchment areas along Service 855’s route are mostly low density housing, and the route does not duplicate any other bus service significantly, owing to its own unique sectors. Introduced in 1989 by Trans-Island, the route has not undergone any amendments since.

Fare: Charges basic distance fares. See Bus Fares. Calculate your bus fare using LTA’s fare calculator on MyTransport.sg here.
