Service 170X connects Kranji and Woodlands to Johor, supplementing its parent service. Although route details state that the trip starts at the bus stop opposite Kranji Station, most passengers board at Kranji Station when travelling towards Johor.

Owing to varying traffic conditions of the Causeway, travel and waiting times may increase drastically in the event of a congestion. Occasionally, buses may be diverted to Woodlands Avenue 3 and Woodlands Centre Road instead of Woodlands Road in the direction of Johor between Kranji and Woodlands to avoid slow-moving traffic of heavy vehicles on Woodlands Road during major congestions.

At each checkpoint, all rides will be suspended and all passengers are to alight to clear customs and immigration. For the ride between Woodlands Checkpoint and JB CIQ, commuters may board any bus from Services 160 or 170/X. However, passengers who wish to continue their journey and not pay for a new ride have to board back any bus from Service 170 or 170X after both checkpoints are cleared.

Take note that passengers may also switch between 170 and 170X at either checkpoint without counting as a transfer. For example, a passenger can board 170X at Kranji, take 170 or 170X across the Causeway then board 170 to Larkin.
