Buona Vista MRT Station (EW21/CC22) is an elevated/underground Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station on the East West Line and the Circle Line, and serves as an interchange station between the two lines.

Platform screen doors & High Volume, Low Speed (HVLS) Fans

Together with the elevated stations along the North South Line and East West Line, it was originally built without any Platform Screen Doors to prevent commuters from falling into the train tracks and HVLS Fans to improve air ventilated on the platforms. The station was retrofitted with half-height platform screen doors which commenced operations on 10 June 2011 and HVLS Jet fans which commenced operation on 25 June 2012.

Art in Transit

The Tree of Life by Gilles Massot depicts an eucalyptus tree located at the nearby Kent Ridge Park that has been digitally edited to create an effect similar to David Hockney's photo montages.[1] The tree also represents the jungle greenery which used to exist next to the above-ground station and is a result of the deep impression left on the artist of the landscape and view of the area. The artwork is located on the lift shaft in the underground station.
