Route History

Intratown Service 812 serves residential blocks, schools and public amenities along Yishun Central, Yishun St 61, Yishun Ave 4, Yishun Ave 2, Yishun Ring Rd and Yishun Ave 3, connecting them to transport nodes at Yishun Town Centre, namely Yishun MRT and Bus Interchange. Its primary area of service is Yishun Neighbourhood 6 on the East Loop, and Neighbourhoods 1 and 7 on the West Loop. High capacity articulated buses are deployed on a daily basis due to high demand from Yishun residents.

The route serves schools such as Northland Primary, Chung Cheng High School (Yishun), Rainbow Centre – Yishun Park School, Jiemin Primary, Yishun Junior College and Naval Base Secondary. Other public amenities served include Khoo Teck Puat Hospital, Yishun Polyclinic, SAFRA Yishun Country Club and Chong Pang CC.

Service 812 operates in two loops, where buses will first ply the East Loop (via Yishun Ave 4) followed by the West Loop (via Yishun Ave 3), while calling at Yishun Interchange between loops. Terminating trips will operate as Service 812E on the West Loop, indicating that the bus will terminate at Yishun Int and no longer continue its journey on the East Loop.

Due to the opening of Yishun Temporary Bus Interchange, there will only be 1 berth allocated for Intratown 812, for the East Loop only.
Commuters taking 812 East Loop (via Yishun Ave 4) are to board at Yishun Temp Int Berth 5.Commuters taking 812 West Loop (via Yishun Ave 3) are to board at Bus Stop 59161 Opp Blk 201 Yishun Central near Yishun Temp Int Berth 7.

Terminating trips will operate as Service 812E on the West Loop, indicating that the bus will terminate at Yishun Temp Int and no longer continue its journey on the East Loop.

During Eves of Public Holidays, last bus timings are extended to complement the extension of train operating hours.
