    • 973 is redundant to the max. Fetch air only most of the time, waste manpower. Shld have extended to loop at Ng Teng Fong

      no service to Yishun St 44?

      with the extension of 860, DD makes more sense.

      More likely some or most of the 860 DD's will move over to 807.  The extended portion of 860 does not look like it will have high loadings until Springleaf MRT opens.  Much of the extension is already covered by 138 and 169, unless most of the people working at Tagore stays in Yishun.

      Can scrap 804 already.

      i think when SBST take over, they gonna to amend /cut short 860... can just follow 169 route instead..   now let pax familiar with 807 first..

      If liddat they might as well just extend 860 to become the 807 now and intro a new more direct service to Springleaf-Tagore-YCK instead icon_lol.gif

    • I used to email LTA about extending 860 to AMK Int via Springleaf/AMK Ave 5 but it turn out to be YCK Int instead.

    • All, service 860 extension is a good one. It gives residents along Ang mo kio ave 5 much needed added convenience. Currently, only few services ply there. Cheers. Thanks.

      68 probably not BSEP, cuz already under the Loyang bus package.

      78th probably at Bedok, cuz Downtown Line opening on 21 October, and by next week we should know the bus service - if it is related to the opening of Downtown Line stage 3.

      79th probably 71, cuz already made known, just haven't announced only.

      Whereas for the 80th bus service, it's anyone's guess.

      The next 3 services are probably 68, 71 and 137... (I remember someone mentioning 137 previously.) We will see what happens when DTL3 opens next month.

      Hopefully, after 80 new routes under BSEP, LTA will continue to introduce new routes...

      Should be useful for them to get to YCK Int. I suppose they would also like to visit Wisteria Mall, Junction 9 and Yishun Hawker Centre on a regular basis, and have both their lunch and dinner at those places everyday.

      Yes,68 is already under Loyang.Maybe Tampines Concourse new feeder svc..Although I'm hoping a new svc from Changi Biz Park to cover 48 route along Bedok North Depot to loop somewhere in Bedok North St 3.48 can terminate at Biz Park.

      Don't see the point of 807, not unless LTA has provisions for it to be amended to Yishun Ave 6 or 8 in the future.

      Agree that 804 is now obsolete.

      Yeah... The area around Bedok North Rd / Ave 1 / St 3 / Ave 2 should have a new trunk service. The last time when there was a new service in that area was svc 45 back in 2006. Hopefully there's a new service when DTL3 opens.

      I'm also hoping a new svc would replace 17A and continue further east (e.g. Changi Biz Park). I find it ironic that 17A was awarded to Go Ahead but it continues to terminate at SBST-owned Bedok North Depot. Bedok North Ave 4 also hasn't seen new services for a very long time.

      How about svc 44:Changi Biz Park via Bedok North Ave 4 then loop around somewhere..Can cover 48 deleted sectors and supplement 17.Yes 17 should goes to SBST while Go Ahead takes either 5 or 29.

      Okay. If that's the case, 68 and the Bedok service are probably the next BSEP bus services, to be launched in conjunction with the opening of Downtown Line stage 3.

      They would probably be the 78th and 79th new bus service, whereas 71 would probably be the 80th and final new bus service.

      If you notice, the new bus services launched by operators are all short working trips, complementing an existing bus service. Eg. 110 complements 858, 170A complements 170, and 912A/B complements 912.

      Moving on, I would expect more complementary bus services to be launched to complement existing bus services.
