      service 25 should   Go to Changi business terminal better than to upper East Coast terminal 

      any suggestions for it 

      Want it to serve Bedok North, more parts of CBP?

      Of course would have been better to go CBP. Peak hours definitely v high loading.

      - Other than serving schools, it also provides inter-town connections, though loading may be poor

    • Loading on svc 116 @ 0720am from HCI

      Hougang Interchange -- 08 (0/8)

      Hougang Central -- 8 (0/8)

      Hougang Ave 4 -- 10 (0/2), 13 (0/3), 17 (-1/5)

      Hougang Ave 9 -- 20 (-4/7), 28 (-4/12), 28 (-4/4)... a lot of people who boarded along ave 9 were for Serangoon MRT. There was 109 SD a little ahead (guess it might be packed to door, hence people chose 116).

      Serangoon North Ave 4 -- 44 (-4/20), 54 (-3/13)

      AMK Ave 3 -- 67 (-8/19)

      YCK Road -- 69 (-3/6) few pax could not board, 67 (-2/0) front door was not opened, 69 (-3/5), 67 (-2/0), 68 (0/1)

      YCK Link -- 64 (-4/0)

      Serangoon Central -- 61 (-3/0), 29 (-59/27) I alighted here.

      ** 116 loading has increased significantly towards NEX. There were people from ave 9 who travelled with me all the way to NEX.

      ** 116 could benefit from a few DDs in its fleet to meet the AM peak demand. Can start with 2 DDs and see how it goes.

      ** Finally, after 4 years or so, have seen good traction with 116. Even loading from HCI in PM is good these days as people prefer to take 116/329 from interchange rather than 72 from stop outside. This ofcourse has led to lesser loading on 72 / 101 from HCI bus stop.

      Maybe peak hour that’s why..Still many paxs are unaware of 68

    • Especially for svc 3 from Pgl towards PSR st 71 if they’re stuck at the PGL jams

      Many service passingby there and concourse still have 127 & 969.

      Maybe in future 4 Citaro,2 A95 and 1 B9TL is enough

    • Service 34A should be converted to operate full day and extend to weekends and public holidays

       

      Service 34 between Punggol and Tampines cannot cope even on Weekends

       

      Bus I am on 1400H today at Punggol Temp Int was filled 80% full, next stop fully packed to the door
