Passenger Information Systems, which are plasma display screens located at each platform, display expected train arrival times and key messages. Tactile flooring helps to guide the visually-handicapped from the platform to the station exits.
The concourse features faregates for automatic fare collection and provides access between paid and unpaid areas of the station, with at least one bidirectional wide-swinging gate for the benefit of passengers-in-wheelchairs and those carrying bulky items or travelling with prams.
General Ticketing Machines allow commuters to purchase tickets for single or multiple journeys, and along with Top-up Machines, offer contactless card transactions. The station office functions as a Passenger Service Centre, and is staffed during operating hours, where commuters may make travel inquiries.
Art in Transit: “Welcome To Kaki Bukit” by Hans Tan
The video installation brings together the split personality of the Kaki Bukit area. The train line that runs below this estate cuts accurately across this uncanny divide, where an industrial landscape of workshops, factories and offices occupy one side, while a domestic landscape consisting of housing estates and schools occupy the other. The participatory video captures the identity of this divide through a dynamic welcome sign, where “Welcome” is written by participants from the domestic side by school children and residents, “Kaki Bukit” written by workers from the industrial estates on the other side, and “to” written by the artist who represents the train station inserted in between.
