Service 47 connects the residential towns of Marine Parade and Bedok South with Changi Business Park, as well as enhancing public bus connections around Changi Buisness Park with a new route to Tanah Merah MRT. A unique loop sector via Amber Road, Mountbatten Road and East Coast Road (eastbound) provides better connectivity with the vibrant section of East Coast Road, with its shopping malls and old shophouses.

It is the fiftieth (50th) bus service to be introduced under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP). The launch of Service 47 along with Service 118 also marks the start of operations of the new Changi Business Park Bus Terminal.

The route serves educational institutions such as Temasek Junior College and Victoria School, as well as shopping centres such as Changi City Point, Parkway Parade, Katong Shopping Centre, Roxy Square and 112 Katong Mall.

In addition, the route provides a cheaper alternative to Premium Services 724 and 748, benefitting commuters who travel between Tanah Merah / Marine Parade and Changi Business Park.
