Service 178 is a supplementary inter-town trunk service, serving residential estates of Woodlands, Bukit Panjang, Bukit Batok, Jurong East and Boon Lay. Much of its route passes through industrial estates, such as at Woodlands, Corporation Road and International Business Park, therefore most demand is encountered during peak hours. It shares both its termini with Service 187 but plies a longer route.

Service 178 encounters very low demand during off-peak hours owing to the presence of many duplicating routes and little demand from industrial estates. However, there is considerable demand arising during morning peak hours from Marsiling Industrial Estate and industries at Woodlands, between Woodlands Regional Interchange and Kranji MRT Station.

Occasionally, buses may be diverted to Woodlands Avenue 3 instead of Woodlands Road to avoid slow-moving traffic of heavy vehicles on Woodlands Road during major congestions.
