      ideally 120 route should have been:

      HarbourFront -- Telok Blangah Road -- Telok Blangah Dr/Heights -- Henderson road -- Telok Blangah Way -- Lower Delta road -- Jalan Bukit Merah -- Kim Tian road -- Tiong Bahru MRT -- Lower Delta road -- Alexandra Road -- Tanglin road -- Kay Siang road -- Margaret Dr -- Queenstown MRT -- Dawson road -- Kay Siang road & back.

      1 service would cover 120-121-122. It will be high loading servixe that can be operated at 07-10 mins interval. It would also connect Dawson that has been ignored. 124 in turn could be extended to Bukit Merah Inteechange via Telok Blangah Heights. 

       

       

      The routing of 120, 121 and 122 are as such because the bus network at Bukit Merah area is already well established. The new routes are configured to create new bus connections, while limit the duplication of resources.

    • An upgrade of capacity, from single decker buses to double decker buses, should be sufficient, since most of the above-mentioned bus routes use only single decker buses at the moment. No need for new bus route.

      One service could have done the job of 120-121-122-124 and ofcourse there could be other service consideration/routing to connect Redhill and Alexandra. 

      But anyway what's done is done. Have to stay with these services. Those who want to go Tiong Bahru from Telok Heights will have to transfer at Henderson/Telok Blangah way to other services available. 

      Hi mr busanalyser, they need it. Another bunch of new BTO flats inside telok blangah heights are on the way. Sooner or later, the pressure will tell. Cheers. Thanks.

    • Life also have a so call opportunity time, every individual alive, be it you are a billionaires or a beggar, a President or a prostitute, you have 24hrs per day, 7 days per week and so on.

      Yes, you can do partime on anything to earn more..but do you have the time, or do you want to spend more quality time with family or your own life or sloggin on the road serving others…just like me, a casket driver cum taxi driving…that utterly took most of my own time away.

      Therefore, for opportunity time and cost, you decide. But dun end up on your dying bed and tell your family that you feel like never lived before hor.

    • Good for the existing taxis who survived the onslaught, today took 3 younger paxs at different location, asked them why never use Phv, they said, sometime, must support taxi uncle like you mah, read the news, taxis driving not earning much, if you all throw key, Phv will surge….

      ...so at time, the news do help, at least these few youngsters understood what is demand and supply in economic.

    • The most help from PHv is lowering our taxi rental prices….just imagine without Phv, that time how much they con from us…as I said before, taxi, like car will depreciate year by year, why charge us same pricing of $100+++ over rental price every years?

      If today got no Phv, I think rental might shoot to $200 for a Renault…thank you Phv

    • After CNY, taxi companies might have to retrench their staffs…from DRO to companies’ car service technician..and all those lau kok kok re employed employees would most probably show the door/gate out.

      As taxi on the road dwindled, why need so many useless staffs walking here and there.

    • If you currently have a job that pay average, and you do not like it because of the management, whereby it is the peoples and system issue and not your job issue, please think thrice before resigning and put yourself as taxi drivers or phv drivers.

      The truth is, frankly, if given a time to go back younger, many taxi drivers would not want to be taxi driver and would prefer to continue working, get promoted, upgrade skill and get all the benefits as an employee. But now, after driving for so many years, most will not get use to full time job as an employee not to mention that most companies will not even employ them…classified as Lau kok kok.

      Therefore, if just for the sake of your family and yourself, stay on your job, learn new skill and work hard and smart, dun just because of some company’s policies you not happy only, resign and join taxi driving, which is suppose to be your last resort.

      As for 120, I think if it were to routed the way you suggested, it will lose the popular Alexandra - Redhill connection. 120 is the only service from Alexendra Retail Centre and Redhill MRT and its loading is high along this stretch during peak hours. Also, it will lose its connection to Telok Blangah MRT which many Telok Blangah Dr/Heights residents rely on. Better to leave 120 untouched in my opinion.

      Hi mr marvel68, yes service 120 left untouched. Best is to introduce new short TRUNK to connect telok blangah heights and tiong Bahru mrt with a direct route. Cheers. Thanks.

    • Every course that is not too broad is a good course. Jack of all trade, master of none.

      Business Administration on the other hand is usually frown upon outside, unless you can be sure once u grad, you can find a management post or at least a post that fully ultilise them. Which is likely not since fresh grad lacks experience.

    • And while on the other hand telling ppl "Not to do drugs", here they are, getting religious personel to test them out icon_lol.gif

       

       

      That said, they probably have better chance with people into shamanism and idolism. American indians have been using them to achieve spiritual powress. So does some africian tribes.

    • Whether full time relief or sunday super relief, will hirers hesitate to rent out their taxis to a newcomer with no taxi driving experience?
