Service 78 is an industrial trunk route linking the factories and offices at Penjuru and Pandan with connections to Clementi and Jurong East MRT stations. It also supplements other residential bus services between Teban Gardens and Jurong East MRT/Int, as well as between West Coast and Clementi Town Centre. Demand for this service is heavy during weekday peak hours, and large numbers of double-deck buses (and a large split-shift fleet) are deployed.
