Premium 559 served 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 provided 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.
Commuters may also pre-book passes from the ShareTransport App.
