      Good move. Certain AM slots can get upto 60-70 pax per bus, and this loading will increase given more flats are TOP and occupancy is on rise. Loading is higher towards Yishun than Sembawang.

      Well... it was introduced way before its time... Just like 944 going empty right now... 944 will be packed to door in mid 2018... same way 883 spent many months with less than 10 pax on the bus or even totally empty buses. 

      Of course 883 is required for Canberra estate with the huge number of flats... just like 944 is required for BBT West town.

    • I still believe that 117 would actually go in. Just wait till more stops are ready and you see

    • I personally email regarding these service

      3:Need a few DD during Saturdays

      43:Can exchange 4 DD to SD.

      43M:50/50 SD/DD.

      82:Need 2 DD..If the bus stuck at Nex good luck with overcrowding 

      83 & 85:Reduce to 50% SD/DD

      359:Need 2-3 peak hour DD to cope with St 11/51 loadings.

      386:Problem is Edgefield/Edgedale roundabout which is not tri-axles DD friendly.

      Really?? But there is 133 to help out there + 262.

      In spite of 883, 117 should also go in to Canberra estate as it further connects to Khatib, Seletar Circus and Punggol.

      There's certain timings where 136 can get packed.Maybe 1 full day and 2 split DD is enough.

      but 117 will lose the direct connection to/from Yishun.

      i doubt ppl take 117 from sembawang to yishun per se but prefer the mrt coz of its shit frequency. Personally i think it is time to let 117 go to Canberra too.

      Sidenote: I saw a couple of residents telling MP Lee Bee Wah they dont have direct connection frm sembawang to punggol coz 117 too long. Maybe they too bad lah, coz i dun think there will be any services more direct that 117 le
