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 demand for 852 is very insufficient & low to have DD. Do you realise that 852 demand is more for students from Yishun directly to Bukit Timah academic belt.

      852 is a bus service that plays as an supplementary role which most of the days in the week will not be high demand. People normally take 852 is for people who goes to Bukit Timah Road & Bukit Batok area as what I can tell you.

      Most of commuters along 852 will usually take other services like:
      – Yishun to AMK Ave 6 – can take 851 & 853/853M too
      – Yishun to Marymount – can take 851 if come

      So as demand is not high, that’s why 852 cannot give DD. Hope this answers understand you.

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