Service 167 is an inter-town trunk route connects housing estates around Sembawang, Yishun and Bukit Merah, and the suburban areas of Upper Thomson and Thomson, with connections to the City areas of Novena, Orchard Road, Padang and Shenton Way. Along with Service 980, it serves the full stretch of Upper Thomson Road and connects to the city, and compliments Service 196 between Bukit Merah and the Central Business District.

Demand for this route remains moderate to low throughout the day owing to the presence of duplicate routes and low-density developments along much of its route. However, peak hour demand is high especially between Sembawang and the City.

Formerly a Singapore Bus Service (SBS) route since the 1970s, the route was transferred to Trans-Island Bus Service (TIBS) in 1983 and has been operated by SMRT ever since.
