      There are a few errors in this press release:

      1) 03311 should be at Marina Street, not Marina Station Road.
      2) 133 has ceased to call at 03311 since 14 Jan 2012.
      3) 402 is not affected in this diversion though it calls at 03311.

      There are still some more. 97 also calls at Opposite Suntec Convention Centre bus stop, yet the press release only states 36 calling at the bus stop.

      That is because Service 97 in the direction (02159 towards Marina Centre) is not affected by the road closure, but Service 36 will skip the bus stop 02159.

    • The poster about operating days for service 405 in 2012 is out at Boon Lay Interchange (beside the passenger service office) but no press release is available in the website.

      Yes. But it will be granted when it was Chinese New Year 2013.

      So when do you started to wish for a bus stop along Bedok North Interchange?

      Route Amendments To Services 231 And 235

      http://www.sbstransit.com.sg/press/2012-03-01-01.aspx

      See? I knew 235 will be amended to loop at Caldecott MRT.  And how the route look nice...it was made to call twice at Lor 2 & 3 Toa Payoh. The previous amendment was to ply Lor 6 Toa Payoh and Toa Payoh East in January 2010 which resulted in duplication with 231 when 235 is amended to loop at Caldecott MRT. (Refer to the map for details.)

      And also, Toa Payoh had become a bus hub with no more 2-plate feeder services (231 and 232 having routes changed causing it unable to have 2-plate systems.)

      I don't think got any fleet reduction. Based on what im seeing at the ett, i think there will be 4 buses on amended 231, merging the fleets of both 231W/231G. I think they might introduce E/S shift as well among the 4 buses.

      What logic you trying to bring up? They amending 231 is partly due to the fact that 235 no longer calls at Braddell MRT but instead to Caldecott MRT. They giving options to residents at Lor 5 to choose which bus to take to which station. If they amend 235 alone to skip lor 3, then the residents at Lor 3 how? So that's why they amend both buses. 

       

      Sad that now TPY no more G/W. Last time remove 232G/W when it merged with 237 to form the present 232. Now 231. zzz.

      When did I disagree 235 calling at Lor 3 Toa Payoh? I like the route because 235 was made to call twice at Lor 2 and Lor 3 Toa Payoh. To my opinion, if you look carefully at the map, it looks more like a duplication, though I think yours is also right.

      I believe there may be a fleet reduction of full day buses. The time taken for the new route is probably 20-25 minutes. If the frequency remains like it is now (~10 mins), 3 buses will be sufficient. Maybe introduce an extra S shift for peak hours.

      Btw, is 235 the longest feeder in toa payoh now?

      I never say you disagree ah. But i still don't get it how did 231 and 235 duplicated due to the ademendment in 2010? I don't see them duplicating much somehow.
