Service 191 primarily serves low-density private housing estates at Portsdown Road with connections to Buona Vista MRT, one-north station, and Holland. The route also serves the Fusionopolis development near one-north.

Before the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP) addition, the service was running with only 1 bus, with one of the lowest frequencies of any bus service in Singapore. Under the BSEP scheme in 2013, 2 additional buses were added to the service.

No boarding and alighting is allowed at Buona Vista Bus Terminal. The first and last stop of this route is 11381 – Blk 10A and 11389 – Blk 46 along Holland Drive respectively.

2015 Route Extension to Media Circle

With the opening of the new Mediacorp Campus at Media Circle, Service 191 was extended to loop at Media Circle, omitting a bus stop along Portsdown Avenue from 6 December 2015. This brings about connections from the new Mediacorp campus to both one-north and Buona Vista MRT Stations.
