Bus Service 973 links residents of mostly Petir, and Hume, as well as Pending to BP6/DT1 Bukit Panjang and DT3 Hillview MRT and LRT Stations.

The short Trunk bus service duplicates Bus Services 700 and 700A from Bukit to Petir.

As buses need to keep to the right lane to enter Dairy Farm Road from Upper Bukit Timah Road near DT3 Hillview MRT Station, it does not call at 43061 Hillview Station along Upper Bukit Timah Road. As such, commuters from Hume headed for DT3 Hillview MRT Station should alight at 42991 Before Hillview Station Exit B along Upper Bukit Timah Road and walk forward to the station.

From DT3 Hillview MRT Station, commuters headed for Hume can board at 43069 opposite Hillview Station at Exit A. Commuters from Petir and Bukit should alight here for the MRT Station.

Commuters headed for Petir and Bukit should board at 43891 after Dairy Farm Crescent along Dairy Farm Road by using Exit A and crossing Dairy Farm Road. This walkway is not sheltered. Alternatively, they may also board at b/s 42991.

In addition, Bus Service 973 also serves schools including Zhenghua Primary School and Trinty Theological College, shopping centres including Bukit Panjang Plaza, HillV2, and The Rail Mall, Bukit Panjang Park, Bukit Panjang N2 Park, Dairy Farm Nature Park, Senja-Cashew Community Club, Bukit Panjang Community Club, Hillview Community Club, and MOE Dairy Farm Adventure Centre, as well as BP8 Pending LRT Station.
