Bus Service 853# is an inter-town Trunk bus service, linking housing estates of Yishun, Kio, Serangoon, and Geylang. These connections are frequently utilised as an alternative to taking the train, especially when the route passes by Yishun, Ang Mo Kio, and Serangoon Town Centres. Therefore, moderate to high demand is received throughout the day.

Bus Service 853# is an extended route of its parent service 853 which operates between Yishun and Geylang on Weekdays and Saturdays excluding public holidays. The Sunday and Public Holiday route operates between Yishun and East, with the number on the Electronic Display Signage continuing to be 853 only. Bus Service 853# does not call at Lorong 1 Geylang Bus Terminal. Instead, it connects residents of Marine Parade Housing Estate as well as private estates in Katong and East with Geylang and North. It is the only bus service operated by SMRT Buses at Upper East Coast Bus Terminal.

Bus Service 851 and 852 duplicate this service between Yishun and Kio, but the route between Ang Mo Kio and Geylang is relatively unique. In Katong, Marine Parade, and East, it complements Bus Services 13 and 43.
