Service 912 operates in two loops, where buses will first ply the East Loop (via Woodlands Ave 7) followed by the West Loop (via Woodlands Centre Rd), while calling at Woodlands Temporary Interchange between loops. Terminating trips will operate as Service 912E on the West Loop, indicating that the bus will terminate at Woodlands Temp Int and no longer continue its journey on the East Loop.

There are two separate queue berths at Woodlands Temporary Interchange for Intratown 911; passengers should check their direction of travel before boarding the bus. During Eves of Public Holidays, last bus timings will be extended to complement the extension of train operating hours.

In 2014, a PPSS variant of this route, 912P, was introduced. It duplicates part of 912’s Checkpoint loop and operates during peak hours only. The service was renumbered to 912M from 1 Sep 2016 as part of Changes to PPSS in Sep 2016.
