    • So AMK gets 2 Interchanges while HG lost 1. Kovan Hub should have been retained as a secondary terminus for 132 and 151. HGC no need for expansion work. Waste $ too.

      Gali Batu terminal can be used for 75, 172, 184 and 700.

      Which routes start from there?

      Also, will 265 and 268 continue to operate from AMDEP after Bishan gets farmed?

      No idea for Bidadari but I don't think the interchange is big also,Maybe like Joo Koon size.

      265 & 268 I prefer to start from YCK Int once the extension is completed

      I would be really surprised if all these service numbers are used solely for Bidadari. Maybe one or two of them are possible, considering many other services (like 81 and 82) are possible to be amended there.

      Anyway,i suspect 68 will use berth 7 for both Pasir Ris and Tampines. 

      Weekdays should be 6 AM-PM & 1 SS,Weekends should be 6 AM-PM & 1 TQ

      If 127 gets amended in future to cover roads in Tampines North not served by 68, then it's ok. But that may not be necessary considering Tampines North bus interchange will be up by then.

      I think it depends on the demand for 68. 127 is still not doing so well.

      Give 127 within 2 years when more factories will shift there.127 still survived with paxs from concourse to interchange

    • Actually 68 can extend to start from Changi Village via Loyang Avenue,Loyang Way, Pasir Ris Dr 3 and resume route.

    • I think it's better to award 944 to TTS & 974 to SMRT,Since the former reluctant to take any new DDs.SMRT can just transfer 4 SG A22 to TTS

    • Route for 127 should be: 

      Tampines Interchange >> Tampines Concourse >> Tampines Ave 9 >> Tampines North Dr 1 >> Tampines Ave 11 >> Tampines Ave 10 >> Tampines Industrial Ave 5 (return journey via ind ave 4) >> Tampines Road >> KPE >> Buangkok Dr East Dr (exp) >> Buangkok Dr >> Punggol Road >> Sengkang East Way >> Compassvale Interchange

      * Provides connection between Sengkang west town and Tampines

      * Provides alternative to 72 for Tampines Rd and Logistics park to connect to Tampines MRT & Sengkang MRT (NEL)

      * Connects west part of future Tampines North estate where svc 68 does not ply to Tampines Road, NEL and Tampines MRT

      * Provides alternative to 27 between Sengkang and Tampines touching different points within Tampines and Sengkang estates with common stops only at Compassvale interchange and Tampines Ave 9 (1 stop). 

      * 127 will find good patronage with this change.

    • Remember the objective is the connections and profits is secondary under LTA.Whatever the outcome they will surely adjust the fare to sustain.127 still got loadings from Concourse to Int if there's no 969 in front.

      Messy as f--k. Should let SMRT operate this and let TT have 944. So 974 in which package? Don't tell me Chua Chu Kang?

    • 974 estimated travel time and distance, based on existing bus routes and estimation

      99 from Joo Koon Int to SAFTI Military Inst - 5mins; 1km

      192 from SAFTI Military Inst to Pioneer Stn Exit B - 9mins; 2.2km

      179 from Pioneer Stn Exit B to Blk 664C - 3mins; 0.6km

      New section from Blk 664C to Opp Blk 662C - 2mins; 0.3km

      172 from Opp Blk 662C to Opp Westwood Sec Sch - 7mins; 2.4km

      New section from Opp Westwood Sec Sch to Opp Northvale Condo - 24mins; 7.5km

      307 from Opp Northvale Condo to Opp Choa Chu Kang Stn - 2mins; 0.5km

      307 from Opp Choa Chu Kang Stn to Blk 352 - 1min; 0.3km

      67 from Blk 352 to Phoenix Stn - 7mins; 1.9km

      983 from Phoenix Stn to Aft Bt Panjang Stn - 3mins; 0.7km

      Total for Direction 2 = 64mins; 17.4km

      983 from Aft Bt Panjang Stn to Blk 183 - 2mins; 0.6km

      963 from Blk 183 to Bt Panjang Stn Exit A/LRT - 1min; 0.3km

      Total for “transition” to Direction 1 = 3mins; 0.9km

      New section from Bt Panjang Stn Exit A/LRT to Blk 183 - 3mins; 0.7km

      983 from Blk 183 to Opp Phoenix Stn - 3mins; 0.7km

      67 from Opp Phoenix Stn to Blk 414 - 8mins; 2km

      New section from Blk 414 to Northvale Condo - 4mins; 0.9km

      New section from Northvale Condo to Westwood Sec Sch - 22mins; 7.1km

      172 from Westwood Sec Sch to Blk 662D - 8mins; 2.6km

      New section from Blk 662D to Blk 662A - 2mins; 0.3km

      179 from Blk 662A to Pioneer Stn Exit A - 3mins; 0.6km

      192 from Pioneer Stn Exit A to Opp SAFTI Military Inst - 9mins; 2.3km

      99 from Opp SAFTI Military Inst to Joo Koon Int - 4mins; 0.8km

      Total for Direction 1 = 66mins; 18km

       

      Total travel time and distance for 974 = 133mins; 36.3km

      I have a feeling that 974 will use Bukit Panjang Bus Park for bus drivers to rest, considering the total travel time and distance may be too long to drive continuously.
