Premium 539 served 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 was popular with residents of Pasir Ris who would otherwise rely on a long MRT ride to reach the city. Alongside Premium 538, it was one of two (former) SBS Transit Premium services from Pasir Ris.

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.

Trips were subsequently reduced and the route was extended to serve the new condos along Pasir Ris Link.

Commuters may also pre-book passes from the ShareTransport App.

    Hi, I am a resident of Ripple Bay. Where is the bus stop to board 539? Is it the same bus stop as 354? Thanks.
