Premium 549 serves the housing estates of Ang Mo Kio Neighborhoods 1, 2 and 6 with bus connections to the CBD, eliminating the hassle of transferring between different modes of transport. It is a more convenient alternative route for residents who would otherwise rely on the MRT and other bus routes to reach the city. Currently, other routes running nearby like Service 128 and Service 162/M also provide bus connections to the city.

In 2013, City Direct 652 was launched between Ang Mo Kio and Shenton Way, which significantly reduced demand on this service as a cheaper alternative and overlapping catchment areas.

With the takeover of operations by Commute Solutions from SBS Transit on 3 Oct 2016, the route was extended to Temasek Blvd, omitting Fullerton Square with an increase in fares.

Subsequently, one trip was reduced.
