Feeder Service 240 serves residential neighbourhoods and schools around Boon Lay Gardens and Taman Jurong with connections to Jurong West Town Centre and Lakeside MRT station (more specifically, Jurong West Neighbourhoods 1, 2 and 3). At 15.4km in length, it is notably long for a feeder service.

By skipping Boon Lay Gardens in both directions, Service 30 is a more popular connection between Corporation Drive and Boon Lay Interchange. During Eves of Public Holidays, last bus timings are extended to 1:15am to complement the extension of train operating hours.

In 2014, a Peak Period Short Service (PPSS) variant of this route, Service 240P, was introduced. Operating between Lakeside MRT and Jurong West Town Centre, the route relieved demand off Service 240. The service was renumbered to Service 240M from 1 Sep 2016 as part of Changes to PPSS in Sep 2016.
