Service 82 connects the residential towns of Serangoon, Kovan, Hougang, Sengkang and Punggol. Largely duplicating the North-East Line (NEL), this route primarily serves housing blocks along Punggol Road and Hougang Avenue 10 with connections to various NEL stations. Much of this route is remnant of its former routing which stretched all the way to World Trade Centre (now HarbourFront). In 2011, the route was amended to loop at Serangoon from Punggol to lack of space in the new Serangoon Interchange.
