Bukit Batok Bus Depot was built by Singapore Bus Services (SBS), commencing operations in January 1985 after the company moved out of their old Alexandra Depot. SBS buses which previously parked at Alexandra or Woodlands Depots, or Portsdown, Whitley and King Albert bus parks, were all relocated to the new depot. Located within an industrial estate, the depot is located far from nearby residential blocks, reducing noise pollution to nearby residents.

Spreading over 52,187 square metres and built at an estimated cost of $12 million, the depot is well equipped with bus washing machines, spray painting booths and fuel pumps. A covered bus park can hold up to 291 buses. Commonly referred to as BBDEP, it continues to provide maintenance and refueling works for buses today.

Buses deployed to BBDEP are interchangeable with its sub-depot, Ayer Rajah Bus Park (ARBP). BBDEP also handles all cross-border bus operations, such as Service 160, 170 and 170X.
