Bus Service 969 incorporates a long express sector in Seletar and Tampines in its route, therefore receiving high demand, especially during peak hours, being the fastest link between Tampines and Yishun, as well as Khatib, with travel times of forty minutes during non-peak hours.

The inter-town bus service connects the housing estates of Land, Yishun, and Tampines. It also calls at the bus hub near Punggol Road along Tampines Expressway, allowing commuters to transfer to other bus services serving the corridor.

Bus Service 39 also links Yishun and Tampines, however plying a longer route via Pasir Ris. Between Tampines and Land, Bus Service 168 provides faster journeys by skipping Yishun.

Most of the time, the seats on the bus from Tampines would have been filled by passengers in the queue. Therefore, passengers who are not in a rush and would prefer to have a seat on the long express sector should join the queue.

In addition, Bus Service 969 also serves NS9 Woodlands, NS10 Admiralty, NS13 Yishun, NS14 Khatib, EW2/DT32 Tampines MRT Stations.
