Bus Service 974 is a trunk service from Bukit Panjang to Joo Koon. The new route opens a new express bus corridor along the Kranji Expressway (KJE), complementing existing bus and rail connectivity between Choa Chu Kang/Bukit Panjang and Jurong West.

The route is expected to relieve end-to-end demand on Service 172, offering faster journeys between Choa Chu Kang and Boon Lay, as well as complementing existing bus connections between Boon Lay and Joo Koon. Connecting directly to Joo Koon, the route will also benefit commuters travelling between the north of Singapore and industries at Joo Koon via train, reducing the need to transfer between the North South Line and East West Line at Jurong East.

    Since bus service 180 extend to bukit panjang int, so either construct more queue area in bukit panjang int (1st plan) or wait till gali batu ter to complete and then introduce 974 (2nd plan) from gali batu ter to joo koon int. It will be too early if using 2nd plan, in my opinion 1st plan is better. Actually lta need not need to construct gali batu ter, just add more queue area in bukit panjang int.
