Bedok North Depot was built by Singapore Bus Services (SBS), commencing operations in December 1982 after the company moved out of their old Changi Depot. Before its opening, SBS buses were parked at Changi Depot and Somapah Bus Park, which were in close proximity to residential areas and the subject of noise-related complaints. Bedok North Depot, which was located within the Bedok North Industrial Estate (and a considerable distance away from nearby residential blocks), reduced the noise pollution.

Occupying 6.2 hectares and built at a cost of $12 million, the depot is equipped with a bus washing machine, spray painting booth, and service & maintenance facilities. Today, it remains a major bus depot serving the east of Singapore, providing maintenance and refueling for buses in the area. It is commonly referred to as BNDEP.

In 2013, BNDEP became the maintenance and refueling point for buses stationed at the new Changi Bus Park, which relieved the insufficient parking space at the depot.

SBS Transit Service 48 is the first bus route to use the depot as a terminating point, after a route amendment in December 2011. Previously, the depot also served as a turnaround point for Shortworking Trip 17A.
