Service 14e was introduced as a Fast-Forward variant of Service 14, offering quicker journey times for commuters travelling between the City and the housing estates more quickly than its parent route during the peak hours. It also charges express fares.

The route skips Bedok Road in both directions, using Bedok South Avenue 3 instead (but does not call at any stops along that stretch). Also, it does not call along any stops along Mountbatten Road. Buses may ply different routes along the express sectors depending on traffic conditions.

Demand is moderate to weak, with trips operating with no more than half standing capacity.

  • SBS Transit Trunk Service 14
