Service 75 connects the West to the Central areas, serving residents of Bukit Panjang, Upper Bukit Timah and Holland with connections to the City areas of Grange Road, Great World, Outram Park, Shenton Way, Fullerton and Marina Centre. It is also only service to ply Grange Road. The long detour along the outskirts of the City offers unique connections between various points of its route.
From Bukit Panjang, Service 75 compliments Service 184 to Clementi Road, a sector of high demand during peak periods with demand from various educational institutes along Clementi Road, such as Ngee Ann Polytechnic and SIM. It also provides daily bus connections between Marina Centre and the Shenton Way district, although this unique sector does not appear to be well-utilized.
Formerly an SBS route since 1981, the route was transferred to TIBS in 1995 and has been operated by SMRT ever since. High-capacity articulated/double-deck buses are not deployed due to insufficient demand.
As part of the Bus Service Amendments for Bukit Panjang ITH Opening, Bus Service 75 will still continue to operate from Bt Panjang Temp Bus Pk with additional calling stops along Woodlands Rd and changes in stopping point along Jelebu Rd despite the opening of Bukit Panjang Integrated Transport Hub on 04 Sep 2017. It will also likely be extended to Gali Batu Bus Terminal in the future.
