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 Downtown Line 3 stations are proximate to the route of this service, resulting in low demand as commuters choose to take the MRT for its speed.
