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.
The concourse features faregates for automatic fare collection and provides access between paid and unpaid areas of the station, with at least one bidirectional wide-swinging gate for the benefit of passengers-in-wheelchairs and those carrying bulky items or travelling with prams.
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.

Art in Transit: “Somewhere Else” by Yong Ng
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.
