Bus Service 979 is a residential Trunk bus service operating within the Yew Tee estate. It links residents of flats in Choa Chu Kang Street 52 and Crescent to the public transportation interchanges at NS5 Yew Tee MRT Station and DT1/BP6 Bukit Panjang MRT and LRT Station. It also passes by schools including De La Salle, as well as neighbourhood amenities including Bukit Panjang Plaza, Junction 10, Yew Tee Point, Limbang Shopping Centre, and Yew Tee Community Building. Bus Service 979 duplicates Bus Service 302 between Choa Chu Kang Street 52 and Choa Chu Kang Crescent, both services’ looping point.

The connection for residents of Yew Tee to Bukit is an important one, as residents can directly use the Downtown Line to access other towns and the City without having to transfer via Yew Tee or Kang with Bus Service 302.

In addition, Bus Service 979 also serves Stagmont, and most of Choa Chu Kang North 5. However, it does not serve Kranji.

In spite of the above, this service does not receive high demand.
