      Sv 243G's 15 mins wait at 8pm - 9pm

      Lady writer complain tat 179 semua double deck + empty.

      She should see the queue for 179A in the morning, crowd at NTU from 4pm - 10pm (part time)

      But the part of 243G's delay is kinda true, esp if there's long queue for 179 in the noon period.

      transfer 1 bus from 179 to 243G. since 1 bus is already empty, should not allow empty buses to pass through everytime.

      179 -> 243G (Afternoon)
      please take note: There will be a new shift

      179 buses departing interchange may be empty, but you think that the buses will come back in empty as well meh?

      Take note that 179 can reduce some more buses preferably in the afternoons. Evenings no need to bother at least can put back their buses.

      Evening crossovers are not permitted.

      I think leave it alone.

      154 has to deal w/ NP & SIM itself. 30 w/ Taman Jurong & HarbourFront corridor.

    • When NTU holiday, there is no problem handling on 179's crowds. Fleet reduction. Saw only 9365K & VO2x running yetserday. The rest all perm LO3xs. Ended up more spare buses during that period.

      They already tested ADD before 243G started calling on that stop. Its not because of the bus stop. Its because of the JW St 61/62 junction. 243G will not be using ADDs until the turn is widened.

      When? When MK2s were all alive? Iirc when they were still on the road, there used to have frequent NAC bus cameos.

    • Yesterday, took bus 14. wanted to go bukit merah library, around 515pm, reach somewhere at lower delta, flag the bus down, asked the prc driver, going to bukit merah library? He lost, told me going to queensway.

       

      I wanted to highlight this cos' the driver should also need to know the route name and the building along the way. It is frustrating to know that bus 14 can bring me there but yet, the prc driver dont know!

       

      Can the authorities look into this matter?

      We are ok to have foreigner driving the public bus but at least he should also know the builiding name.
