Eunos MRT Station (EW7) is an above-ground station along the East West Line (EWL). It sits on the edge of the Geylang East planning subzone, and is physically located near the junction of Sims Avenue and Jalan Eunos.

The station and surrounding estate is named after Mohammad Eunos Abdullah who set up the Malay village in the area, formerly known as Kampong Melayu but renamed to commemorate its founder. Malay influences are remain strong in the area, with streets named after Muslim community and national leaders. The station architecture differs from other eastern East West Line stations, with a traditional Malay-style pyramid roof instead of the conventional barrel vault roof design, similar to other western East West Line stations (Boon Lay – Chinese Garden) and northern North South Line stations (Bukit Batok – Khatib).

Eunos station is a transport node for residents of Eunos, Geylang Serai, Joo Chiat, Telok Kurau and parts of Kembangan, while also serving the nearby Eunos Industrial Estate and light commercial areas along Changi Road. 

Bus services are offered from Eunos Bus Interchange, which connect to other parts of nearby estates.

Eunos station has two elevated East-West Line platforms in an island platform arrangement. Half-height Platform screen doors are installed at the platform edge for the safety of commuters, and retrofitted High volume, low speed (HVLS) fans keep passengers cool. The station architecture differs from other eastern East West Line stations of the same era, with a traditional Malay-style double-pitched roof instead of the barrel vault roof design, similar to other western East West Line stations (Boon Lay – Chinese Garden) and northern North South Line stations (Bukit Batok – Khatib), reflecting Malay influence in the nearby Gelang Serai area.

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 station exits. Escalators, lifts and stairs connect the Platform level to the Ticket Concourse level below.
