Bus Service Service 179A is a trunk service operating from Boon Lay Bus Interchange and looping at Nanyang Technological University (NTU). The route skips all bus stops along Jurong West Street 63 & Pioneer Road North in both directions.

As a route variant of Service 179, the route operates during Weekday Morning & Evening Peak hours and supplements the high demand for Service 179 from students and staff commuting from Boon Lay Int/MRT to NTU in the mornings, and returning from NTU to Boon Lay Int/MRT in the evenings. By skipping all bus stops between Boon Lay Interchange and NTU, the route offers faster connections between the two ends of the route, while separating passengers heading to/from Pioneer MRT with those heading to/from Boon Lay Int/MRT.
