Premium 585 serves the public housing areas around Bedok Reservoir and Kaki Bukit with bus connections to the CBD, eliminating the hassle of transferring between different modes of transport. It provides a more convenient alternative route for residents who would otherwise rely on the MRT or other bus routes to reach the city.

In 2014, City Direct 658 was launched between Bedok Reservoir and Shenton Way, which reduced demand on this service as a more affordable alternative.

Two trips are operated in the mornings, departing Bedok Reservoir Road (Blk 122) 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 585 operates on a Volvo B9TL and another double-deck bus, running under crossover trips from Service 94.
