Brief History:

  • 1979: Bedok Bus Interchange opens
  • 1981: Given expansion toĀ accommodateĀ more buses
  • 1985: Additional bus services after closure of Chai Chee Bus Terminal
  • 1989: Bedok MRT opens
  • 2011: Shifted to aĀ temporaryĀ location west of the original site
  • 2014: New interchange opens, integrated with Bedok Mall

Bedok Bus Interchange was opened in 1979, constructed as part of Bedok Town Centre, and situated between Blk 203 and Bedok Food Centre (Blk 207). Like other new towns in that era, the interchange was constructed next to other community facilities such as hawker centres, a public library, town council offices and (later) a cinema.Ā It was also allocated the Block number 207A.

Two years after its opening, the interchange was partially demolished for expansion works. 17 more bus bays and a 180m-long passenger concourse were built with the additional 0.4 hectares of land given by HDB. Number of bus services increased from 15 to 26.

In 1989, Bedok MRT Station was completed, offering travel alternatives for long-distance commuters. Despite bus rationalization of many services, Bedok Interchange remained as a transfer point for over 30 bus services. Along its lifetime, the interchange has absorbed bus services from nearby bus terminals likeĀ Chai Chee Bus Terminal andĀ Marine Parade Bus Terminal. Chai Chee Ter, which closed on 15 Sep 1985 to make way for HDB developments, had most of itsĀ services extended to Bedok Int and the remainder amended or withdrawn.

In early 2010, the HDB announced that theĀ existingĀ site of Bedok Interchange will be redeveloped into a an air-conditioned interchange integrated with commercial (Bedok Mall) and residential (Bedok Residences) developments.

After serving the residents of Bedok for 32 years, the old Bedok interchange was closed on 19th November 2011. All bus operations have been moved to a temporary interchange facility built west of the existing site, named Bedok Temporary Bus Interchange and remains operational to this date. To accomadate the new interchange, minor amendments were made to Service 9 and 35 with the closure of the interchange entrance at New Upper Changi Road. The new interchange is expected to be completed in 2015.

Interchange facilities:

The temporary facility has 56 lots for normal buses as well as 2 bendy bus lots. 10 boarding and 5 alighting berths cater to theĀ passenger traffic. The new interchange is expected to retain the current specifications for bus lots and bus berths.

  • Interchange offices (SBST + SMRT)
  • Transitlink Office
  • Drivers lounge
  • NTWU Canteen
  • Retail outlets
  • Boarding and alighting berths
  • Information board &Ā Bus arrival display
