      Don't think so.

      don't think will get withdrawn, but they should definitely review all existing services to see how they can be amended to better serve commuter needs, especially long routes, duplicating services and low demand ones like 120,122.

      Hi mr array88, 120 is one of the only 3 services (120, 124, 273) going inside telok blangah heights. The rest are all along telok blangah road at telok blangah mrt station. It is a long walk and uphill too. Specially introduced for this reason this will not be withdrawn. Cheers. Thanks.

      I am thinking for Ez-Link/contactless cards payment, the fare structure should stay as it is today (aka distance fares). Then the cash fares structure can further simplify as your suggestions above, or simplify even further: $1 for feeders, $1, $2 or $3 for trunks depending on distance, express and night service charge $4. Like that can encourage more people to pay by card instead of cash. Cheers.

    • Stage 3 of Downtown Line will open at the end of the year.

      Extract from the Chinese newspaper article:

      陆路交通管理局答复《联合早报》询问时透露,滨海市区线(Downtown Line)第三阶段建造工程进度良好,目前有约95%的工程已完工,预料到今年中,大多数地铁站就可领取临时入伙证(Temporary Occupation Permit,简称TOP)。

      陆交局已开始在部分完工的地铁轨道进行列车测试,例如介于福康宁站和加基武吉(Kaki Bukit)站之间的隧道。

      随着更多线路的隧道逐渐完工,当局也会逐步让列车在更多地点“试跑”,为年底前通车做准备。

    • I hope LTA modifies few existing routes to terminate at Changi Business Park Terminal, going through the CBP central area.

      All the routes introduced in the CBP area have super high loading.

      20 - almost full fleet DD from a full fleet SD when introduced

      35 - getting to a full fleet DD by regular conversions of SDs -> DD as the loading at Xilin from the CBP area is v high. You see even DDs in the red during peak hours.

      47 - SDs are not able to tank the load between CBP & Tanah Merah. I wouldn't advocate SD->DD conversion simply because the loading between Tanah Merah - Marine Parade is strictly between 30-40 pax.

      118 - DDs did v well on this service since very first month of introduction.

      * There could be possible options that LTA can try to divert one more service from Tanah Merah to CBP given the high loading. They could do it to 38, 45, 46, 48 or extend 26. Whatever they do, it cannot be done standalone but have to tie in with some other changes in the region.

      * Personally I would prefer if it is svc 46 as it would help connect Bedok North Town and DTL3 @ Bedok Reservoir to CBP area. Also help with the lukewarm loading the service has.

      That would be interesting but unlikely to happen in the short term, with 25 being a high loading service for the road stretches it serves.

      What do you mean in the latter half of your sentence? It is incomplete.
