Premium 544 serves housing estates around Bedok North Road / Street 3 and Bedok South Avenue 1 with bus connections to the CBD, eliminating the hassle of transferring between different modes of transport. It is a more convenient alternative route for residents who would otherwise rely on the MRT and other bus routes to reach the city. Along with Premium 545, it is one of two SBS Transit Premium services from Bedok.

In 2014, City Direct 659 was launched between Bedok and Shenton Way, which reduced demand on this service as a cheaper alternative.

Two trips are operated in the mornings, departing Bedok North Road (Blk 111) at 7:50am and 8:00am on weekdays.

Operating Days: Weekdays only. Does not operate on Weekends and Public Holidays.

Fare: Flat fare of $4.20. Transfer rebates & concessionary travel are not applicable.

Fleet: Premium 544 operates on a Volvo B9TL Wright and and a Volvo Olympian, running under crossover trips from Service 87 and 14 respectively.
