Premium 559 serves the housing estates of Yishun Neighborhoods 3, 4 and 6 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.

Express 850E, introduced under the Bus Services Enhancement Programme (BSEP), offers the Yishun – Shenton Way connection at a cheaper price, charging only express fares. Much of 559’s demand have shifted to 850E since its introduction.

    Maybe suggest another early trip starts at 7.15am instead for people like us start work at 8.30am. Thanks

    Can I track how many seats are left on the bus?
    Because when it comes to my stop, it is full so the bus wouldn’t stop anymor and by that time, I would have wasted time to go to MRT and take train to work.
