Service 84 links Punggol Road and surrounding residential areas in Northshore with Punggol Interchange and MRT Station. Small residential communities around Punggol Seventeenth and Twenty-fourth Avenue also benefit from this route. It is also presently the sole bus service to Punggol Road End, serving the Punggol Point jetty, Punggol Ranch and The Punggol Settlement. Demand for this service is high during the weekends and on public holidays.
Following the closure of a section Punggol Road in August 2018, Service 84 was amended to serve Sentul Crescent, Sumang Link and Punggol Way via Sam Kee, Nibong, Samudera and Punggol Point LRT stations.
With the partial closure of Punggol Way & Punggol Road from 23 February 2020, Service 84 would be amended via Northshore Drive.
When Service 84 was taken over by Go-Ahead Singapore on 04 Sep 2016, it was incorrectly declared as a wheelchair-accessible bus service based on the Service 84 Service Guide printed by the operator. It was officially declared a wheelchair-accessible bus service from 16 Jul 2017.
