History:

  • 2005 (19 Sep): Introduced between Hougang Ctrl Int and Changi Airport Cargo Complex to provide a faster travel between places where there is a high demand by calling at fewer stops.
  • 2009 (23 Feb): PM Peak trips start from Airline Road (3rd Cargo Agents)
  • 2014 (24 Aug): Calls at a new pair of bus stops along the slip road of Tampines Expressway near Punggol Flyover
  • 2015 (03 Dec): Designated wheelchair-accessible bus route (WAB)

Service 89e is the fast-forward variant of Service 89 and charges express fares. The service offers faster connections between the residential estates of Hougang and Sengkang with the industrial estates at Loyang and the Changi Airfreight Centre.

The route skips Pasir Ris completely, and only calls at selected stops along Loyang Ave. It does not call at any stops along Nicoll Drive.

Changi Airfreight Centre:

Changi Airfreight Centre (formerly Changi Airport Cargo Complex) is a restricted area and only staff with valid passes are allowed to enter. Auxiliary police officers will board the bus to check for staff passes at the Police Pass Office along Airline Road. Visitors who do not have a pass are to alight from the bus.
