      Pending Road -- 14 (-2/8)

      Petir Road -- 16 (-2/4), 14 (-4/2), 14 (0/0), 14 (0/0)

      Dairy Farm Road -- 14 (0/0), 14 (0/0)

      Hillview MRT -- 17 (-6/9)

      Hillview Dr -- 27 (0/10)

      Hillview Rd -- 16 (-13/2)

      Hume Ave -- 08 (-12/4), 10 (-4/6)

      * Quite poor loading. Frequency = 10 mins

      * Peak loading = 27 pax to Hume, and 25 pax back to BPJ

      * Poorly planned route, could have been planned better.

      * Has anyone else observed better loading?

      This loading counted quite good already for a weekday evening.. Have been seeing 973 with not much demand other than the Bukit Panjang to Petir Rd sector at that period of time.. Usually 973 will bunch with 700/966 (BPJ-Petir sector) and 176/963 (Hillview sector) as well..

    • Svc 3 loadings during Saturday after 10:30..Average of 11 mins per bus all SD

      packed upon reaching Punggol Field...TPE 70% will alight..PSR St 71 loadings pick up again..I wonder why don't deploy 3-4 DDs?83 & 85 can use majority SD during weekends..LTA pls take note..Already running time during weekends is crap and the jams making it stress for the BCs.Weekends got so many jump bus and imagine the agony of the takeover BC if the bus is late.Wonder why pampered svc 83 & 85 so much when the loadings isn't that great either?

      If this loading is considered good for peak hours, I wonder what it is like at other times ;) On another note, saw 2-3 buses on 973 that passed by when I was on it and they all looked empty (<15 pax).

      I agree svc 3 needs more DDs. Loading has increased significantly between Punggol central/field and TPE bus stop. Can take from 83. 62 also no need full fleet DD.

    • *anamoly

      3pm. No one happened to alight or board at all along MacPherson Rd. Only a few boarded and alighted at other roads and the bulk of passengers alighted along Ubi

      You should also record the bus in front. At 3pm, if there is a svc 8 just 03-04 minutes ahead (which could happen due to its high frequency), the bus you are in could get very low demand. 

      Usually, the bus will get packed to door at Tampines Ave 1 from 4pm onwards towards ave 2/7. (Temasek students).

    • If you'll want to assess true loading of a service, do so during peak hours. Please don't take the service off-peak and come with loading analysis and call service useless as 99% services in Singapore during off-peak have low loading.

      It's not just for you. It is also for the person who posted on svc 100 off-peak and then gave conclusions, which are so-far from reality during peak hours.
