Premium 539 serves housing estates around Pasir Ris Neighborhoods 1, 2, 4 and 5 in Pasir Ris East with bus connections to the CBD, eliminating the hassle of transferring between different modes of transport. It is popular with residents of Pasir Ris who would otherwise rely on a long MRT ride to reach the city. Alongside Premium 538, it is one of two (former) SBS Transit Premium services from Pasir Ris.

Due to unknown restrictions, Premium 539 does not ply a shorter express sector via KPE, but travels along TPE, ECP and MCE instead.

With the takeover by Commute Solutions from 26 Sep 2016, Premium 539 was extended to Suntec City via Marina Blvd, skipping Fullerton Square. An additional AM Trip was also added, bringing the total to 3 AM Trips. The fare was also increased to $5.00, from $4.50.
