Premium 557 serves the housing estates of Choa Chu Kang with bus connections to the CBD, eliminating the hassle of transferring between different modes of transport. It provides a more convenient alternative route for residents who would otherwise rely on the MRT or other bus routes to reach the city. SMRT’s Express 982E, introduced under the Bus Services Enhancement Programme (BSEP), also covers the CCK – CBD route, but charges only express fares.

Operations for this route was transferred to Commute Solutions from SBS Transit on 15 September 2014, with a route extension to Suntec City.

From 22 September 2016, the catchment area in Choa Chu Kang for Premium 557 was amended.
