Feeder Service 228 primarily serves the residents of Bedok Reservoir Road, connecting them with Bedok Town Centre. However, it is not fully utilized beyond Kaki Bukit due to duplication with Service 60, which offers a more direct route to Bedok Interchange. This service duplicates Service 66 for almost its entire route length but remains useful by spreading out demand. During Eves of Public Holidays, last bus timings are extended to 1:00am to complement the extension of train operating hours.

  • Bedok Reservoir Road (Christ Ch)  Bedok Interchange
