      Hi mr busanalyser, this is the puzzling thing that baffles me. I also don't know seriously. Cheers. Thanks.

      Hi mr SMB1368T, this is even more puzzling. That time the straits times out Go Ahead has recruited enough bus drivers and they are in a better position to introduce bus service 68 in April 2017. Cheers. Thanks.

      BSEP ends this year... Hence, there will be bumper new bus services announced this year. Unless BSEP is renewed but from what I have heard it won't be.

    • All, with or without BSEP, new bus services will definitely be introduced from yr 2018 onwards. BSEP is just a name sake only. From 2018 onwards, another name may just come in or they may even proceed with no names. For those towns with expanded interchanges such as Punggol, Sengkang, hougang, upper east coast, tampines, surely new bus services will be introduced in tandem with new developments coming up In the towns.

      Yr 2018 Q1 oasis terraces mall will be completed near oasis LRT in Punggol. There will also be Punggol polyclinic being built together with the mall. So we can expect yet another new service being introduced. Cheers. Thanks.

      The thing about Pasir Ris is that the population is small, and there are already so many bus services to many parts of Singapore. Furthermore, there's the MRT station connecting it to the West, and the Northern areas. So there's no need for new bus services, or even city direct.

      Yes, there are new flats, but these are around the town centre.

      What I foresee is that if there is a need for enhanced bus connections to the fringe areas like Pasir Ris Street 51, a new feeder bus will be launched, and this would be a short route similar to 284 at Clementi.

    • Until now, still no bus service at Bulim Avenue. People have to take 181 or 185 to Jurong West Avenue 3, and walk to Bulim Avenue. Otherwise is to ride motorcycle or drive car.

      for what? no need

      they can take 181M (only AM peak) or 185 then stop at bus-stop opposite corporation pri along st 23

      then walk behind & turn right to a wide foothpath in between 2 logistics building to bulim ave

      Makes sense. LTA has already introduced too many sloppy routes.

      Sorry could you rephrase your qns? you asked abt services between BL and NBR, but 172, 173 and 177 doesnt even share similar routings

      Not suprised if 68 awarded to SBST because to compensate their routes that go to TTS/GAS..Might as well kick TTS/GAS out after 2021
