Operating daily, Bus Service 170A duplicates sectors of Bus Service 170 in Singapore. It supplements trips of its parent service. The short trips is a long one, at 23.6 kilometres.

Bus Service 170A ensures reliability of its parent service while existing scheduled trips continue to operate for commuters, even though there are many other alternatives such as the Downtown Line and other bus services duplicating its route in Bukit Timah. Buses on 170A are reliable as they are independent of congestion along the Causeway. The route number 170A is used to distinguish between cross-border buses and local buses.

The short trip operates throughout the day.

Passengers must all alight at the terminating stop. The bus will then proceed to opposite Block 1A along Woodlands Centre Road to operate as a mid-route departure of Bus Service 170.

Departures of 170 and 170A are staggered to prevent bunching.
