Service 77 serves the residents of Bukit Batok, Toh Tuck and Sixth Avenue, with bus connections to Orchard, Dhoby Ghaut and Marina Centre. Due to low density housing around its catchment areas, demand is limited outside of the City. The route compliments Service 173 between Bukit Batok and Toh Tuck estate.

Fare: See Fare Table.

Fleet: Service 77′s fleet comprises of a majority of Mercedes-Benz Citaros, with some O405s, and OC500LEs. Additional MAN NL323Fs were added under the BSEP scheme. Articulated buses are not deployed due to insufficient demand, and also possibly due to road constraints near Sixth Avenue.
