Service 14e was introduced as a Fast-Forward variant of Service 14, offering quicker journey times for commuters travelling between the City and the housing estates more quickly than its parent route during the peak hours. It also charges express fares.

The route skips Bedok Road in both directions, plying Bedok South Avenue 3 between New Upper Changi Road and Upper East Coast Road (but does not call at any stops along that stretch). Another express sector along Mountbatten Road / Nicoll Highway, where buses will skip all stops between Mountbatten Road (One Amber) and Nicoll Highway (Suntec City). 

Demand is moderate to weak, with trips operating with no more than half standing capacity. Buses may ply different routes along the express sectors depending on traffic conditions.

Route Variants: 

Fare: Charges express fares. See Bus Fares.
