Service 124 primarily serves the residents of St. Michael’s Estate, Telok Blangah Heights and Telok Blangah Way with bus connections to the City areas of Novena, Orchard, Dhoby Ghaut, Clarke Quay and Chinatown. As large proportions of its route serves the City areas, this route also offers various point to point connections within the City.

Red and white service plates are used to distinguish the direction of travel in addition to Electronic Display Signages (EDS) on buses. Red plate indicates buses for HarbourFront; white plate indicates buses for St. Michael’s Ter.
