    • Here we go again...

      Anyway to add on, for some reason B9TLs always somehow make more vibrations than other DDs I had been on

    • The E500 ok la. At least u would only feel it from the back. But the B9TL makes me feel like how I am in a Dennis Lance

    • U r not the only one man. In fact I believe many of us do not like it either (although I am neutral about it, since its better than SMRT interior in any way!!)

    • Some SBST AMDEP Buses had the terminal destination displays changed since last week.

       

      SVC 25

      '> Ang Mo Kio Int' instead of '> Ang Mo Kio'

      SVC 162

      '> Shenton Way Ter' instead of '> Shenton Way'

    • Wow I'm shocked that Svc 147A actually can receive passenger loadings of more than 100. Then half the people alighted at Serangoon Stn Exit A/Blk 413 bus stop.

      NEL was already rationalised eons years ago. 2 and 147 are high demand that is why it became full DD.

      Also saw it on 14 which is obviously not AMDEP, noticed the '> Clementi Int' yesterday. Wonder if all SBST buses will be changed to this format?

    • SMB8023S on 176 BC drive super slow at around 25km/h until couldn't take it anymore and got off near Bukit Batok MRT to take MRT instead because god knows when 176 will ever reach my destination. Funny thing is when I boarded at Upper Bk Timah Rd the bus app showed 'arriving' for nearly 4 minutes until the bus came, which means 8023S obviously behind schedule yet drive until so slow...

      The change already started since 4 weeks ago.. And not only amdep, eventually all sbst buses will have it

    • Go-Ahead LECIP EDS minor reformat. The top row (DESTINATION via) one size bigger, now same size as SBS destination.

      29 buses from Bt Panjang to Bt Merah and the results is slow moving buses to achieve the frequency. You should try 110,169,969 and even 67 during weekdays.110 & 969 travel no more than 50kmh at TPE

      but srsly do they need so many buses? 

      969

      PM peak 1/4 of it are running empty sometims 

      AM peak only towards tampines got crowd 

      but AM to yishun/woodlands quite moderate 

      but 969A for AM should cancel since it is always running with 10 - 15 pax

      Maybe prepare for bus bridging service due to MRT closure?
