Service 99 is a lengthy residential trunk route, serving between the housing estates of Clementi, Jurong East, Jurong West and Pioneer North. Its primary role is shuttling commuters between different parts of the large Jurong West residential district rather than connecting commuters to nearby MRT stations. A majority double-deck bus fleet caters to all-day demand from residents.

This route connects to Jurong East MRT along Boon Lay Way, but few use the transfer option due to the long walk from the bus stop to the station and bus interchange. However, the new Jurong East Interchange within the Westgate Mall will be situated much closer to Boon Lay Way. Finally, this route runs parallel to the East-West Line from Jurong East to Clementi Interchange.
