Introduced in 1993, Service 17 is a residential route connecting Pasir Ris, Tampines and Bedok. It also serves housing blocks around Bedok North Road and industrial buildings around Bedok North Avenue 4 with connections to Bedok Town Centre. In Pasir Ris, this route compliments Feeder 358 for Pasir Ris Drive 4. It is the also the only route serving within Bedok Industrial Park.
Formerly a loop service operated by SBS Transit (looping at Bedok Int), buses would proceed to the boarding berth after alighting passengers, which eliminated rest time at Bedok and allowed buses to return to Pasir Ris more quickly. When operations of the route was transferred to Go-Ahead from 18 Sep 2016, Service 17 was re-designated as a bi-directional service.
