Bus Service 851e is a Limited-stop Express Bus Service which offers quicker journeys for commuters at  Yishun, Khatib and Ang Mo Kio, linking them with the Central areas of Little India, Bugis, Chinatown and Outram Park. Operating throughout the day, it only calls at selected bus stops served by its parent Bus Service 851, and charges Express Fares as a result.

In between Ang Mo Kio and Little India, the bus plies an express sector along the Central Expressway (CTE) in both directions. In addition, it does not call at bus stops along Lentor Avenue.  The route operates daily at 20-minute intervals during the peak hours and 30-minute intervals during the off-peak hours.

Service 851e is the sixth new route to be introduced under the Bus Contracting Model (BCM) after Service 974, as well as the third limited-stop service to operate daily (after 12e and 147e). The use of the lowercase e as the route suffix has its origins from Fast-Forward services introduced by SBS Transit in 2005, which are limited-stop services operating only during the peak hours. However, unlike other limited-stop routes introduced by SBS Transit in the past, this service carries the Express classification.

The scheduled run-time for Service 851e between Yishun and Outram Park is about 15 minutes faster than Service 851.
