Premium 536 serves housing estates around Jurong West Neighborhood 9 and Pioneer Road North with bus connections to the Central Business District (CBD), eliminating the hassle of transferring between different modes of transport. It is mildly popular with residents of Jurong West who already have convenient MRT connections to the city (via Feeder bus and Pioneer MRT).

With the takeover of operations by Aedge Holdings Pte Ltd from SBS Transit from 15 August 2016, the route for Premium 536 was extended on both ends. Premium 536 would additionally serve Jurong West Ave 5 & 3 as well as Temasek Blvd, Raffles Ave & Beach Road. An additional AM trip was also added to the route, bringing the total number of trips to two.

Jurong West Ave 5 & 3 is also served by City Direct 651 which provides a much cheaper and faster ride to Anson Road.
