      I still wonder why 117's loading failed to pick up... Not enough demand beteeen Yishun and Punggol?

      100 can cut few buses and introduce DDs now that Aljunied road is re-aligned. 145 also should get more DDs and can cut 2 buses in total. Frequency will still be good, just lesser buses on road and demand better managed.

      Surprised actually to see the downgrades because in the last 2 months, 117 loading has actually improved from what it was. When introduced 2 years back, yes loading was really shitty but now when  things improve with loading, they decide to downgrade. How about they think of downgrading 46, 83 or 119 that don't have DD worthy loading at all, fail to even fill SDs.

      because 9 DDs for 117 is a bit of an overkill

      103 only 1... that time u saw 4 cos not enough SD so they epull some DD from other svc... anyway not surprising if LTA going to remove it soon since LTA always claim 103 no need DD due to various reasons

      I would prefer to give those 2-3 DD to 136 instead.

    • 119 frequency is justified for its loading la

      Ask them 83 & 85 also no need full DD..Transfer over to SBST and exchange for SG Citaro instead...

      Agree. Loading on svc 3 has increased a lot, especially from Punggol to TPE Punggol stop. Easy fix: Move DDs from 83 to svc 3 and make svc 83 back to full fleet SD as it was in SBS days.

      Kapo 3 svc 85 and 3 svc 83 DD better for the benefit of doubt.

      Weekdays

      S3:12 SD 8 DD

      S83:5 DD 3 SD

      S85:11 DD 3 SD
