Fares: Service 8 charges regular Basic Bus Service Distance Fares.

Much of the demand for this service is received from commuters travelling between residential towns of Toa Payoh, Kaki Bukit and Tampines and the industrial areas of Ubi and MacPherson.

The future Downtown Line 3 stations expected to open come December 2017 are proximate to the route of this service, therefore demand is highly likely to decrease as commuters most probably would choose to take the MRT for its speed.
