Service 852 is a trunk route linking Bukit Batok, Bukit Timah, Marymount, Ang Mo Kio and Yishun. By largely duplicating existing bus services but with less catchment areas, Service 852 fulfills a supplementary role by providing more travel options for commuters. Demand is generally moderate to low during off-peak hours, and buses operate at low frequencies, but the route continues to benefit residents and students along the Bukit Timah academic belt with connections to outlying housing estates.

The route shares its Bukit Batok – Bukit Timah connection with Service 157 and 174, and its Bukit Timah – Ang Mo Kio connection with Service 74, but does not serve Ang Mo Kio MRT station (and hence taking on less demand). It also shares long duplicating sectors with Service 851 and 853/853M between Yishun – Marymount and Yishun – Ang Mo Kio respectively.

Introduced in 1985 as Yishun Int – Jurong Int, the route was shortened to Boon Lay Int in 1990 and finally shortened to Bukit Batok Int in its present form in 1996, after the opening of the Woodlands MRT extension.

    When SBS Transit takes over in 2018, it will be more than 17 years since SBS had a route going to Bukit Batok.
