Route History

Service 882 is a largely residential route serving Sembawang Estate and Sembawang Road with bus connections to key transport nodes at Sembawang MRT and Bus Interchange. The route loops at Sembawang Road End, and also serves Wellington Primary School, Sembawang CC, Sembawang Park and the Boy’s Brigade and Girl’s Brigade Campsite.

The route’s limited coverage within the Sembawang estate, along with low-density housing along Sembawang Road, results in moderate to low passenger demand that is concentrated within the Sembawang estate. High capacity double-deck / articulated buses are not deployed due to a shortage of demand and possible route limitations at Sembawang Road.

Despite the limited demand, a shortworking trip 882A is provided during weekday evening peak hours for the benefit of Smbawang residents and improve frequencies during the peak hour.

Shortworking Trips: 

  • Service 882A: Sembawang Interchange → Montreal Link (Aft Montreal Dr)
    Weekday evening peak hours

Fare: Charges fares for regular trunk services. See Bus Fares for exact fares.

Fleet: Service 882′s fleet comprises MAN NL323F buses, with additional MAN NL323F buses added under the BSEP scheme. Crossover buses from 980 and 981 also operate on this route.
