Service 89 is one of three daily trunk services to Changi Airfreight Centre (formerly known as Changi Airport Cargo Complex). It also provides inter-town connections between Hougang, Sengkang, Pasir Ris and Changi Village. It shares its popular Pasir Ris – Sengkang- Changi Village link with Service 109, although plying slightly different routes. On weekdays, it encounters strong demand from the North-East regions to Changi Airfreight Centre and various industries along Loyang Avenue.

Changi Airfreight Centre:

Changi Airfreight Centre (formerly Changi Airport Cargo Complex) is a restricted area and only staff with valid passes are allowed to enter. Auxiliary police officers will board the bus to check for staff passes at the Police Pass Office along Airline Road. Visitors who do not have a pass are to alight and re-board the bus after it returns from completing its loop within the Airfreight Centre (at a separate bus stop opposite Police Pass Office).

Upon tapping out of the bus, the exit reader will display “Ride Suspended”. It will resume the journey when one taps onboard the same service after the bus comes out of the Airfreight Centre. Cash-paying passengers will still have to pay a full fare to their journey after they board the bus.

    Yesterday bus number 89 SG5935H 15 AUG 2018 at 20:00hrs. I was waiting at bus stop B20 LOYANG AVG towards PASIR RIS. At 20:20hrs number 89 bus arrived. I quickly wave my hand up, but the bus driver did not stop and very fast speed passing by me, i was very angry and get up another bus number 109 from behind and follow the bus in front until the bus stop B01 PASIR RIS DR 3. Finally i manage to get up the bus SG5935H and i question the bus driver and he replying me that he never see me waving hand and point his finger on the number SG5935H and say you can complain me.
