Service 74 is an inter-town trunk route that serves Dover, Clementi, Bukit Timah, Marymount, Ang Mo Kio and Hougang. It is a popular route between Ang Mo Kio and Hougang, and further adding on to the demand are students of the Clementi and Bukit Timah academic belt who commute to and fro Dover and Ang Mo Kio MRT Stations.

Service 74e operates between Hougang and Buona Vista, connecting Hougang, Ang Mo Kio and Bishan with Clementi and Holland Village. It skips selected bus stops en route, providing commuters with faster means of travel as compared to Service 74.

Skipped bus stops include those on Dunearn, Bukit Timah and Dover Roads, also incorporating an express sector along the PIE between Clementi and Lornie. It also plies Commonwealth Avenue West instead of Dover Road. Much of its demand arises from students and staff of the Clementi Road academic belt.

No boarding and alighting activities are allowed at Buona Vista Terminal.
