Bus services are offered from Bedok Bus Interchange, which connect to other parts of the estate.

    Dear Sir / Madam.
    Please look into the escalator’s speed in Bedok MRT station.
    It is extremely slow and it slows down the human traffic flow during peak hour.
    Very slow, please get the maintenance to check.

    Regards
    Doreen
