      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 

      LTA instructions mah.969 really need to cut 2 full day buses.

    • BUS OBSERVATIONS

      SG5081X bus captain caught having a toilet break at Newton Stn Exit B while on revenue service (Service 518). The entrance door was left open.

       

      I understand that the bus captain needs a toilet break as it is a long routed service to drive but it poses as a risk of someone being able to drive the bus away, putting the bus commuters at risk.

    • So I was one of the many people getting to ride on SMB1444G on my usual home svc, so there was a WAB who is obviously entitled to board first. Then bcos many people were angry with this (I am neutral), they go start saying like this "Eh use ur brain ah! I board first also I dont disturb mah. I pay 3 dollars for fare...bla bla bla" just basically about the WAB always boarding first. This just happened on SG5700T (67) too

      Whats wrong with just waiting for a few seconds for WAB to board first really. Not like they take ur seats also ==

      i think its pretty normal but then there is nth the bus drivier can do if he rlly need a toliet break as he can't ask all the passengers to alight and board again

      518 has one more toliet break at bayfornt MRT

      I dont think so. 518 just make their sheduled bus stop and carry on since there is no nearby toliet as the nearest one is 5 - 10 mins away

      wow.. anw putting shuttle 1 inside JE int is a really stupid idea. the int was already congested with existing services, and the buses flowing in was very slow that it caused a long queue. boarding from outside the int would have been faster. they should have done boarding from the bus stop opp ntuc before the int. 97 197 and other buses also hogged the berth for their loading , no choice.

      BUS OBSERVATIONS

      SG5605K was observed to have a faulty sensor on the staircase (kept beeping throughout the journey even though no one was standing on it).
