Eunos MRT Station (EW7) is an above-ground station along the East West Line (EWL). It sits on the edge of the Geylang East planning subzone, and is physically located near the junction of Sims Avenue and Jalan Eunos.
The station and surrounding estate is named after Mohammad Eunos Abdullah who set up the Malay village in the area, formerly known as Kampong Melayu but renamed to commemorate its founder. Malay influences are remain strong in the area, with streets named after Muslim community and national leaders. The station architecture differs from other eastern East West Line stations, with a traditional Malay-style pyramid roof instead of the conventional barrel vault roof design, similar to other western East West Line stations (Boon Lay – Chinese Garden) and northern North South Line stations (Bukit Batok – Khatib).
Eunos station is a transport node for residents of Eunos, Geylang Serai, Joo Chiat, Telok Kurau and parts of Kembangan, while also serving the nearby Eunos Industrial Estate and light commercial areas along Changi Road.
Bus services are offered from Eunos Bus Interchange, which connect to other parts of nearby estates.
