Service 855 is an inter-town route serving between the housing estates of Yishun, Farrer, Bukit Merah and Lower Delta, and the suburban areas of Lornie and Upper Thomson, connecting them to HarbourFront. The route is frequented as a popular connection between various housing estates, notably between Yishun – Upp Thomson and Bukit Merah – HarbourFront. Its sector between Bukit Merah, Lower Delta and HarbourFront is well received due to high passenger demand and lack of alternative routes.

Double-deck buses were introduced to the route on 24 February 2019, operating on Weekends & Public Holidays only.

    Bus 188 and 963 are in smrt, serving HarbourFront interchange and have the suffixes E’s & R’s. Why don’t bus 855 also have these?

      855 demand is tentatively low eventhough they are not duplicative. 855 mostly plies low-density housing besides Bukit Merah and Yishun. Possibly, because Yishun had a direct to HarbourFront by interchanging for NEL via Dhoby Ghaut.

      Unlike 188 & 963, the demand is high because of convenient directions between CCK/Bukit Batok West (188) & Woodlands/Bukit Panjang/Bukit Batok East (963) respectively as they don’t have other routes and lack of transfer, causing Transfer hassles. But very good question!
