Bus Service 46 also benefits commuters in Tampines West by providing an alternative bus service that runs parallel to:

Bus Service 46 also runs parallel to Express Bus Service 506, serving Fengshan estate. Previously, only Express Bus Service 506 serves as a direct link between Bedok South and North while charging express bus fares. The trunk route nature of Bus Service 46 would see a reduction in bus fares for commuters previously relying on Express 506 between Bedok North & South.

Unlike more recent BSEP-introduced routes, Service 46 was not wheelchair-accessible at introduction. It was finally designated a wheelchair-accessible bus service on 21 Aug 2017. Passengers in wheelchair will not be able to board Service 46 from Tampines Interchange due to the wheelchair inaccessible end-on berth.
