Service 84 links New 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 New 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.

In December 2023, Service 84 was amended to loop at New Punggol Road, serving new / under construction housing estates such as Punggol Point Woods, Punggol Point Crown and Punggol Point Cove. 2 of the new bus stops served by Service 84 was featured in the Travel Guide for Punggol Point Woods housing estate residents released by the Land Transport Authority in September 2023.

The section of Punggol Road End (Old Punggol Road) skipped by Service 84 is slated to be converted into a heritage trail.

Division of Service

On 23 June 2024, Service 84 was divided into two variants: 84G (Green, for the clockwise route) and 84W (White, for the anti-clockwise route).

Service 84G operates clockwise via Sentul Crescent, Punggol Way, Northshore Drive (Samudera LRT), and New Punggol Road towards Punggol Temporary Interchange; while

Service 84W operates anti-clockwise via New Punggol Road, Northshore Drive (Samudera LRT), Punggol Way and Sentul Crescent, towards Punggol Temporary Interchange.

Trivia

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.

SBS Transit’s sole Volvo B10BLE Demonstrator unit, SBS1688K, used to operate on this service until its retirement in Jan 2015.

    With the route amendment announced today, 84 would be the first trunk service to have the G and W service variants, which until now only feeder services have this kind of variants only.

    Can you add double deckers for 84g/w? For high demand
    Also can you order bendy and add some svc like 84 43/m/e and somemore
    Also will you extend to digital district?

      It’s already going to serve the Digital District, albeit a small section of it, which is the most important central area.
