Bus Service 972 plies long express sectors along highways between Bukit Panjang and Whitley Road via Bukit Timah and Island, hence receiving high demand from residents due to its quick links between Bukit and City, serving Stevens, Orchard, and Dhoby Ghaut.

The Trunk bus service has a similar catchment shared with Express Bus Service 971E, which only operates during peak periods.

The full-day, direct connection between Bukit Panjang Neighbourhoods 4, 5, and 6 in the North of the estate and the shopping area of Orchard serves as an alternative to other bus services operating to and from the City, including Bus Services 190, 700, 700A, and 960. Within Bukit, it also provides unique connections, serving a large catchment including Senja, including that of both Feeder Bus Services 920 and 922, while also connecting the faraway estates to the Bukit Panjang Bus Interchange allowing residents to make a transfer to other bus services with convenience.

A mid-route departure is also operated from Bangkit, before the first bus arrives at 7 a.m.

After 2318 h on weekdays and Saturdays and after 2303 h on Sundays and public holidays, Bus Service 972 will no longer operate from the terminus. Instead, Bus Service 972A, which terminates at Dhoby Ghaut in Orchard, operates.

In addition, Bus Service 972 also serves BP6/DT1 Bukit Panjang, BP13 Senja, BP10 Fajar, BP9 Bangkit, DT10/TE11 Stevens, NS22/TE14 Orchard, NS23 Somerset, and NS24/NE6/CC1 Dhoby Ghaut MRT Stations.
