Bus Service 982E operates only during weekday morning and evening peak periods. It is under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme.

The Express bus service serves as an alternative connection to Shenton and Marina for residents of Kang to taking the Mass Rapid Transit to and from their workplaces in Central with its route parallel to the rail network. An express sector between Teck Whye and Anson via Bukit, Jurong, Ayer Rajah, and Keppel is incorporated.

As such, Bus Service 982E relieves high demand from the rail network.

Bus Service 982E receives only low to moderate demand, a far cry from other peak-hour Express bus services operated by SMRT, including Bus Services 850E, 951E, and 971E, which have more departures to cater to high demand. On Bus Service 982E, busses are, on average, fully seated however only having few or no standing passengers.

Alternatively, Premium Bus Services 557 and 725 also directly links to Shenton, however charging higher fares. Trunk Bus Service 700 operates from Bukit to Bras Basah via Orchard with a longer journey, but commuters will need to make a transfer which may be a hassle.

In addition, Bus Service 982E also serves BP2 South View and BP3 Keat Hong LRT Stations, as well as EW15 Tanjong Pagar, DT17 Downtown, and NS27/CE2/TE20 Marina Bay MRT Stations.

Please note that Bus Service 982E serves Choa Chu Kang Avenue 5, but does not serve Keat Hong Close.
