      Then that route would be very long

    • I would suggest that Sve 171 terminate at Bukit Batok Interchange coz there are still loading at night along Upp Bukit Timah Road sector.

      Service 171
      Yishun Interchange - Bukit Batok Interchange
      Via
      Current Route
      Upp Bukit Timah Road
      Jalan Jurong Kechil
      Bukit Batok East/West Ave 6
      Bukit Batok West Ave 3
      Bukit Batok Central
      Bukit Batok Interchange

      Route Back
      Bukit Batok Interchange
      Bukit Batok Central
      Bukit Batok West Ave 3
      Bukit Batok West/East Ave 6
      Jalan Jurong Kechil
      Upp Bukit Timah
      Current Route Back to Yishun

      I think it's nearly the same as the current length, but with shorter running time because of plying 3 expressways, and provide direct link from Yishun to Boon Lay. It's only downside is that svc 180 and 172's demand will be decreased for those who take it for direct link between these two towns.

      In future, once Bukit Batok West town is fully developed, 944 need to run at a much better frequency. I doubt 171's frequency and YIS-BPJ sector's loading are good enough for that.

    • To anyone who's suggesting new CCK-Boon Lay services, please take note that Jurong Region Line will provide MRT connection between these two towns.

      Indeed. There should be at least one feeder-frequency service at BB west, in addition to inter-town services to CCK / BPJ / JE.

      Jalan Jurong Kechil
      Upp Bukit Timah
      Current Route Back to Yishun

      Going all the way via Beauty World makes it too winding. There's also 157 / 178 / 852 that cover parts of that route already.

      If the Beauty World sector must be retained on 171, I suggest merging it with 41. Can let SMRT operate the new route, then let TT take over 944. (Though not sure if it will still be part of BSEP)

      Oh. Then people who take 172 and 180 would take 171?

      Why not merging both 171 and 180 together..

      Those who want express traveling between CCK and Boon Lay can take 171.

      Can just extend 102, no need another new service. Moreover, SAP loading is well managed by 103 and 117 for now. Lot of company buses such as Rolls Royce.

      I remember when 102 was introduced, people were saying that it will be extended to Seletar Camp East in a few months. Not sure why it's still not extended by now...

    • Preliminary ideas for extension of 71

       

      IMO 71's usefulness will be very limited and definitely not DD-worthy, so an extension seems necessary to me.

       

      Plan A: Express to city from Bishan St 11 / Braddell Rd, via CTE

      - Preferably passing through areas in city not served by NSL/TEL, e.g. Little India, Bugis, Suntec, Chinatown

      - Offers direct link to city for AMK Ave 4/1 and Bishan residents

       

      Plan B: Extension to Compassvale or Punggol from YCK Rd

      - Preferably via Fernvale St / Anchorvale St

      - Supplements 50 and 163, providing additional connection between Sengkang and AMK

      - Offers direct link for YCK Rd workers living in inner parts of AMK town

      - Limitation: Too much duplication

      967 will be a good service because once 902 end services esp during exam period, 169 queue can be until 168 there or even further. 967 can help to filter some students 

    • Tbh 902 can extend its ops  hour during the exam period till 4pm with a frequency of 5- 10 mins
