      Loading quite alright today. Full seating and some standee on 110. Looks like it help to relive some load from 858 between TPE - airport

    • 969 can upgrade 5 SD slot - 3 DD. always full load on 969 SD

      Interesting how nobody alighted at TPE bus stop. I always thought some Anchorvale residents will use 110 to connect to TPE for transfers.

      * Highest loading = 21

      * Bus arrived Tuas South Avenue 14 (looping point) at 5:30pm. From there, it began its journey back to Tuas Bus Terminal.

      * Did an earlier observation in the morning which recorded up to 48 passengers, but had to abort it due to the list not being accurate (as you can see, Tuas Avenue 5 repeated 3 times. I had accidentally omitted a few roads in the list, which kinda ruined everything. Also, many bus stops were skipped. This route is so hard to observe that I had to observe it twice to get the correct reading).

      * The drop in passenger volume could be due to the availability of company buses, which apparently runs more often in the evening.

      * Anyway, whether morning or evening, double decker buses are not required for this bus service.

      * This bus service can operate comfortably using all-single decker buses.

    • Would like to announce that 248 is my last bus loading observation.

      This is because I have covered all the BSEP bus services that were launched this year but have not yet been covered prior to the creation of this account.

      374 and 381 has been partially covered by BusAnalayzer in page 44 of this thread. I don’t know why he don’t want to do the full trip. Nonetheless, at least it’s something.

      Unfortunately, after today, I won’t have time to do bus loading observation. Don’t ask why, and please don’t speculate. I no longer have the time to do bus loading observation, as I have other priorities to attend to.

      As such, I shall leave the future bus loading observations to BusAnalayzer and other forum participants.

      Thank you all for your accommodation in these few days as I embarked on a mission to help you all fill up the gap as many BSEP bus services since 381 had not been covered.

      Now, my job is done, and I am glad that my contribution has helped the forum move on and soar for greater heights.

      As mentioned, I no longer have the time to do bus loading observation, so I shall leave bus service 71 and all other bus services for other people to do.

      Thank you and god bless the people at SGforums.

      Why do you want to stop??? Keep it coming.... You don't need to do 2 a day... but you can do occassionally and report... why so dramatic that you will not do any loading analysis again???

    • I'm also interested in doing loading analysis because I will be freer these days and I'm wondering how you guys do it ah? Like do you guys adhere to a patricular timing of a day to do counting (e.g during AM/PM peaks) and how do you keep tab of passenger movement for each stop especially for routes with high loading (Pen & Paper or counter?).

      I usually do it only peak hours as it is more accurate reflection. I note it on my phone for every stop (easiest way to do it). If on a double decker, I sit on the window seat in the 5th row. Better to take from first stop as you can get your preferred seat and do a full loading analysis or till a certain point.
