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.

    It was 27 Feb 2021 11:05, and my son, daughter and I were taking bus 82 approaching Block 126A from St Anne Church direction. Far before the junction of St Anne Church my daughter pressed the bell early to notify the bus captain that we are approaching. This is kind of a hobby for a 5 yo daughter to hear the bell sounds before approaching our destination always. however due to unknown reason, the bus captain refused to open the door in the first beginning, declared that we did not press bell in advanced to notify him. Even thought i explained hard but he did not seem believing our explanation. There shall have cctv recording of the whole process, hopefully anyone from the bus company could verify that? My 5yo daughter keeps asking me why the captain doesn’t allow her to off the bus even she has done the right thing.
