Service 964 serves as both an industrial and residential route, connecting residential developments around Woodlands Avenue 6 and Woodlands Avenue 7, and industries around Woodlands Avenue 9 and Woodlands Loop, with transport nodes at Woodlands Regional Centre.
The route does not operate on Sundays and Public Holidays, as its residential sector between Woodlands Int and Woodlands Ave 6 runs parallel to Intratown 913. With much of its demand coming from the industrial estate, the route encounters moderate demand during the day but high demand during peak hours, and much of its fleet operates under split-shift. High capacity double-deck buses were added to the fleet in January 2015.
