    • Premium 553 will be discontinued from 3 Jan 2017. The last day of operations will be on 30 Dec 2016. Posters are up on service bus stops.

      Seems that most (if not all) premium services by SBST currently will be withdrawn by this year.

      Hi mr 7337, no. It is not discontinued. It is being changed from sbs transit to other private operators. Cheers. Thanks.

      Eh none of the SBST/SMRT premium routes were directly affected by CDS (only peak-only express routes like 850E, 951E which charge express, not premium fares, had their routes amended). Simple reason why the premium routes are being cut/transferred to private operators is because of GCM; LTA pays the bus companies to run the basic bus services so LTA expects their own buses should be running on the basic routes instead of the premium routes. In the long run I believe 513/850E/951E/982E will also be turned over to the private operators as well, following the CDS model. Cheers.

      513 and the E series prob won't kena... 

      513 may even become full day who knows, weekends divert to town area and 518 skips Tamp West...

      Last routes.

    • In return, public transport operators took over Peak Period Short Service (WAB). Premium better go back to private operator or face extinction.

      Public transport operator SBS Transit make wrong decision in premium service becoming WAB.

      They made them WAB just for the sake of all services being WAB...

      Tower Transit already operates bus service 285.

      What the press release means is that Tower Transit will introduce more trips on bus service 285, to replace bus service 285P.

      Understand?

      at least people bother to post actual stuff... not like someone anyhow post Service 500 intro on 25 Dec...

      Yes, sincerely.

      I say sorry, to apologise for being rude, and for creating that fake press release about 500.

      I am sorry, for creating false information, and for being an eyesore to everyone.

      I am sorry. I will reflect upon my actions, and repent.
