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.

    Hi SBS,

    I would like to comment that the waiting time for bus service number 46 needs improvements. I stay in bedok and always have to wait an average of 10mins for the bus. Unlike bus number 222 and 14 that are serving my area, the frequency really needs improvement especially during peak hours, the bus are always packed due to long waiting time.
