Service EW5 serves residents of Bedok and Chai Chee with bus connections from Bedok Int to surrounding housing estates after feeder buses have ceased to operate. The ad-hoc route operates only during Formula 1 period, complimenting the extension of train operating hours. Exact operating dates will be released by SBS Transit closer to the date of operation, which is usually the Friday, Saturday and Sunday during which the race takes place.

This service duplicates sectors of 222 & 225W.

As this service is ad-hoc, bus stops that service serves do not have the operating details printed on the bus service information board or its service number placed on the bus stop pole. Instead, a temporary poster is put up on the bus stops this service serves.

The route will operate in addition to Nite Owl 4N and NightRider NR7, both of which operate on Friday and Saturday nights.
