Bus Service 980 is an inter-town Trunk bus service connecting residents of housing estates in Sembawang and Yishun as well as suburban areas of Upper Thomson and Thomson to Novena, Rochor, Middle Road, and Beach in the City. It serves Sembawang, Upper Thomson, and Thomson Roads almost entirely to link to the City, together with Bus Service 167. It also complements Bus Service 166 between Thomson and Rochor.

Due to these duplicating bus services, as well as the fact that mostly low-density housing developments are served, the supplementary bus service receives low to moderate demand the entire day, thus operating at low frequencies.

Articulated busses with higher capacity are used occasionally with slightly higher demand from India on weekends and public holidays. However, this demand is still insufficient to warrant the use of double-deck busses.

In addition, Bus Service 980 also serves NS11 Sembawang, NS20 Novena, NE7/DT12 Little India, DT13 Rochor, EW12/DT14 Bugis, and EW10 Kallang MRT Stations.
