      From my observation, buses on services 67, 171, 180, 184, 700/A, 857, 883, 900, 901926, 963, 963E, 963R, 972, 973, 979, etc. are travelling slowly most of the time..

      Company make the runtime and proposed to LTA.

      Its because over the years,LTA added too many buses to those services

      Yah sia, I was ever on one such DD on the way to Tampines, the bus driver probably zoned out while driving so slowly, he veered onto the shoulder lane of TPE multiple times!

      Adding buses doesn't mean there's a need to add more runtime..

      Might be,But still retain dual control..SMRT should follow la until Mandai is completed.

      If TTS and GAS win Eastern and Western respectively they also practice one.

      But SBST overkill also,141 also dual control😂

      61,67,961 & 985 should retain dual control with majority goes to main controller .

      963 should have stayed with Woodlands.

      Braddell and Hougang...Short route also need dual control when svc like 93 is single control 

      TTS wins Bedok and GAS wins CCK-BPJ 😂

      Actually very few ppl use St Mikes also. Ppl at Whampoa Rd would rather walk to NKF stop thus having no need to go one round to Jln Bahagia. For sv 129, they board at Blk 114 stop, not inside the ter, or walk to Jln Raja.

      St Mikes is just like a starting/terminating point..Last time when 602 & 603 was there,a few elderly actually board from the terminal after having their meal there.When i was with SBST BNDEP for a short stint,Use to drive svc 21 a couple of times and always tabao food there.
