      Maybe to serve as holding lots for "half trips" starting from YCK? Or for BC to stop the bus while running to the toilet?

    • I just realised 225G will get extended operating hours, starting at 5.05am instead. Not surprised as it has higher demand than 225W.

      Frequency revised to

      0630-0830: 10-12

      0831-1659: 11-12

      1700-1900: 10-11

      After 1900: 10-12

       

      for 807:

      0630-0830: 2-5

      0831-1659: 2-7

      1700-1900: 4

      Aft 1900: 4-8

      Frequency seems okay for trunk service. But if it is loop service, this means frequency can get screwed up on its way back to Yishun. 

      807 seems to have same frequency as 860. Maybe the fleet from 860 just transfers to 807 with addition of 2 buses for loop to st 71.

      Yes because 225G goes to the inner estate of st 3 while W doesn't.

      I believe the first 225G was pushed forward to allow commuters to catch the first westbound MRT at 5:39am at Bedok MRT.

      On the other hand, the last 225G leaves Bedok Int at 00:40 for commuters coming from the last eastbound MRT (00:29), while the last 225W leaves at 24:00. 

      Most commuters taking 225W can also take 225G as long as they cross the road. Hence 225G alone is sufficient during the early and late hours.

      Aft 1900: 4-8

      If that's the case, we now know why 807 purposely duplicated 860 all the way, instead of serving a few different roads (like many forumers suggested).

      Actually, might as well merge the new 860 with 852...

      2 of my Hgdep standby BCs already says they don’t really like 137 routes.

      The 137 route from UEC terminal to Sims Place terminal is about 19-20 km. Travelling the same distance on svc 10 from Bedok Camp, you would reach Telok Blangah MRT. On svc 14 you would reach Bukit Merah Central. This shows how winding svc 137 is... Somemore svc 137 travels in the opposite direction twice along the route. (The eastbound trip travels westbound at Ubi MRT and Bedok MRT)

      I would prefer svc 137 to be split into 2 portions:
      - Sims Place to Bedok North Rd, then Bedok North Ave 1 and Bedok Int (for faster access between Bedok MRT and Kaki Bukit industrial estate)
      - UEC to Bedok North Rd, then Tampines Ave 10, TPE, Punggol Rd, Punggol Field, Punggol Int or Tampines Ave 10, Pasir Ris Dr 12, Dr 1, Pasir Ris Int (for direct access between DTL3 and Punggol or Pasir Ris)

      225W also goes to the other end of St 3 (near Ave 2) while 225G doesn't. Although the walking distance from that part to Ave 2 is much shorter than the 225G's end to Ave 1.

      Yep! But for many of them they can also walk to ave 3 and get a huge number of buses.

      137 is a DTL3 connector. It is not meant for end-to-end use. It connects parts of Bedok North, Kaki Bukit not connected previously. If you live along Bedok North St 3 and you need to go to UBI, 137 is going to be quite okay than take bus and transfer. But ofcourse you don't take 137 from UEC to Geylang.

      As a resident of Bedok North St 3 I'm used to walking to Bedok North Rd (Block 706), Bedok Reservoir Rd and Bedok North Ave 3 for more bus services. Sometimes I also walk to Bedok Interchange. 

      I wonder what is the frequency for 137. If I miss a bus and the next one comes 15 minutes later or longer, I am not going to wait for 137 to connect to DTL3. I would rather walk. Now there is a new covered walkway from Block 536 to Bedok North MRT, and another new covered walkway from Block 524 to Bedok Reservoir MRT. 

      I will probably take 137 between Bedok North St 3 and Paya Lebar/Aljunied if I am sleepy and not in a hurry.

      Well be happy you have a service and while you dont appreciate it, a lot of people along Bedok North St 3 will appreciate the direct connection to Bedok North MRT, Kaki Bukit industrial estate and UEC, apart from an alternative to do same stop transfer to a lot of other services at Bedok MRT. 

      It may not be of use to you but to many it will be a great value add :)

      961 today deserves to be modified, especially the Chinatown - Geylang section.
