Bus Service 178A is a supplementary short trip bus service, serving residential estates in Woodlands. Much of its route passes through industrial estates, such as at Woodlands; therefore, demand is mostly encountered during peak hours.

Service 178A 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, along its route.

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.
