      Not quite. 75, 177, 960 and 963 merely shifted their stopping point to Blk 180 along Jelebu Rd.

      It's 171 that skips Jelebu Rd entirely (along with 180 and 983). Which makes me wonder what it likely means and what amendment it could next receive.

    • I am not sure if anyone asked about this before, but there is an additional queue rack recently installed for Berth 10 (856/925/950) at Woodlands Temporary Interchange, right beside 950's queue rack. From the direction itself, it is not meant to be an extension for 950's queue though. Although introduction of new services do not per se warrant installation of new queue racks at berths, can someone enlighten me about its purpose?

      Maybe to prevent confusion for travellers? Like some prefer to ride into the checkpoint and not to get surprised when it terminates outside haha

      unlike 950, 170 have no other options.

      but 170A terminates at WTCP, 170X neither starts from Queen St nor terminates at Larkin Sentral.

      950A would make it look like 856A

    • Just before the opening of Bukit panjang ITH, bukit panjang MP is appealing to LTA to revise some of the routes as he have receive lot of feedback n complains from residents 

      I tot LTA have talk to the grassroots ppl/residents etc when they are making changes to the routes ? Or they think that these are minor routes changes so no need to discuss or consult?

      171 & 983 skipping Jelebu Road is pretty ridiculous

      If LTA wants to make any further amendments to these, they ought to do it soon.

      Somehow i feel Sv 180 best to start at BPITH as well. instead they put 2 queue inside the interchange for LRT breakdown. One towards Petir and one toward Senja. Expect more LRT breakdowns i guess. Compared previously, Sv 180, 184,75 and 700, 971E, 177 all not calling the BPITH. The planning really gone haywired.

      Because of the fuss of having to fit the bus interchange in a shopping mall, thus ITH. (So probably limited parking space for services). Just look at Serangoon for example.

      180 can actually  be amended back when 979M is integrated with 979.

      They should delay the ITH opening to October and replan the amendment/extension/change in stopping points.

    • 176 should bypass BPJ town itself and termimate at BPBP, since there already are 963 and 970 to BPJ.

      170X should be extended to BPJ, renumbered 974 and operated alongside 950 in Woodlands contract.

      Has been there since the start.. It's actually meant for the MRT shuttle.. 950 pax usually queue along this queue rack..

    • Actually, considering Bukit Panjang Bus Interchange has 20 parking lots and 2 feeder services, it can only accommodate 4 trunk services.

      This is because 2 feeders would require 8 parking lots (1 feeder - 4 parking lots). The remaining 12 parking lots can only accommodate 4 trunk services (1 trunk - 3 parking lots).

      Yet, there are 6 trunks: 176, 970, 972, 973, 975, 979.

      Can consider relocating 972 and 973 to the temporary bus park.
