Service 194 primarily serves Jurong Bird Park and Jalan Ahmad Ibrahim between Jalan Boon Lay and Pioneer Circus with connections to Boon Lay Town Centre, with an express sector along Jalan Boon Lay.
In December 2015, as part of the Phase 3 implementation of the Joo Koon Bus Interchange opening & bus accompanying Jurong Industrial Estate route amendments, Service 194 was extended along Jln Ahmad Ibrahim to loop at Pioneer Circus, skipping a pair of bus stops along Jurong West St 64 and the express sector along Bird Park Dr. It replaces lost sectors of Service 251 along Jln Ahmad Ibrahim (which was shortened to Joo Koon), while retaining its own express sector along Jln Boon Lay. Operating hours were also extended from 0800hrs – 1800hrs to 0545hrs – 2345hrs daily.
