Service 854 is an inter-town route linking Yishun, Yio Chu Kang Road, Hougang, Eunos and Bedok. The route is frequented as a popular connection between various housing estates, as well as serving Ang Mo Kio Industrial Estate & Industrial Park 3 along Yio Chu Kang Road and more industries around Ubi and Eunos. The route encounters moderate to high demand throughout the day, with especially high demand during the peak hours due to increased inter-town commute and workers from the industrial estate.
The route shares a large proportion of its route with Service 25, its main competitor for the high demand sectors between Hougang Ave 2 and Bedok. Additionally, Service 854 also compliments Service 857 between Yishun and Yio Chu Kang Road.

yes, you’re right. there is no need to amend 854
854 has been serving a few schools such as Eunos primary which need 854 to go to Kembangan, Eunos and Bedok because 25 frequency is low
There’s improvement of the 854 speed since TTS takeover,Not so much goyang like SMRT…
Dun think there are anymore bendies deployed on 854 ever since it got amended into the new Yishun ITH
Better tower transit take over the bus routes for smrt and sbstransit will be lost in the process
Because Tower Transit had won the Sembawang-Yishun bus package.
Service route 854 should amend to hougang ave 10,ave 4,Bangkok green, than yio chu kang rd tower yishan. , withdrawn from the route hougang avenue 2.
Can the lta planning officer let look for the bus routes and the residence for the area hougang ave 10 and 4. Can get the service route to bedok easily.
Emma might the planning officer is not considered for any
Half of Hougang already gotten SBST 87 to Bedok. Other words, you feedback to LTA to have new direct service from Hougang to Bedok. SMRT 854 demand is very high and if you amend inside Hougang, it will cause inconvenience to 854 residents & workers.
the bus service must be a loop service
Ave 4 is served by 72 (to Tampines).
Actually, the eastern half of Hougang is served by SBST service 87. There isn’t an emergency needed to divert TTS 854 to go the route; it wastes time for those who lives around Serangoon North (especially those who live near Salvation Army at Yio Chu Kang Road).
