Bedok Reservoir station has two platforms in an island platform arrangement, with both platforms utilized for trains travelling in either direction. Full-height Platform screen doors isolate the air-conditioned station from the tunnel environment, enhancing commuter safety and station comfort.

Passenger Information Systems, which are plasma display screens located at each platform, display expected train arrival times and key messages. Tactile flooring helps to guide the visually-handicapped from the platform to the station exits.

General Ticketing Machines allow commuters to purchase tickets for single or multiple journeys, and along with Top-up Machines, offer contactless card transactions. The station office functions as a Passenger Service Centre, and is staffed during operating hours, where commuters may make travel inquiries or perform card transactions using cash payment.

A public toilet is located in the unpaid area of the DTL concourse.

Civil Defence shelter

Bedok Reservoir station is one of eight stations along the Downtown Line 3 designated as Civil Defence (CD) shelters, which will be activated in times of national emergency. Apart from reinforced construction, the stations are designed and equipped with facilities to ensure the shelter environment is tolerable for all shelterees during shelter occupation. These facilities include protective blast doors, decontamination facilities, ventilation systems, power and water supply systems and a dry toilet system.

Art in Transit: “Somewhere Else” by Yong Ng

Bedok Reservoir MRT Station – Art In Transit (Somewhere Else)

The artwork is inspired by how everyone is in a way born or destined for greater things and that their everyday journey is part of a bigger scheme of things. Hence the quote, “What matters is not where you’re going but where your dreams are headed” will hopefully serve as a reminder to commuters and inspires them on their commuting journey.

The artwork consists of a typographic piece on the lift shaft with connecting graphic elements on the train platform leading towards the exit. Also included is a special bench formed out of a graphic element developed such that the entire artwork serves as both visual and physical enjoyment.
