Service 179 is one of two routes serving the NTU, connecting it to and fro Pioneer MRT Station and Boon Lay Town Centre. It serves also residents of Jurong West and Pioneer.

Exceedingly high demand is encountered from students and staff of the University commuting from and to the Pioneer and Boon Lay MRT Stations. It is one of Singapore’s most frequented bus routes, amid the presence of a duplicating route, the NTU Campus Rider. Although the Rider, which also connects the University to Pioneer MRT Station, is free-of-charge, its capacity is limited and may commuters would choose to take Service 179, resulting in unaffected demand.
