      Not really sure about the need to extend 55 though, there is 13 that is duplicative.

      Not only 13, but also 43 along that stretch also...

      Upper East Coast Road: 13, 25, 43, 45, 55, 506, 853C

      But why Svc 155 was extended to Bedok ah... So many buses passing by or terminate from Toa Payoh... 26 & 155, 31... Hmmmm

      Route extensions for Services 25, 55 and 155 

       

      The routes of Services 25, 55 and 155 will be extended from Sunday, 9 April 2017 to enhance connectivity for commuters.

      Service 25 
      The route of Service 25 will be extended to terminate at Upper East Coast Bus Terminal instead of Bedok Bus Interchange. With the extension, it will ply between Ang Mo Kio Bus Interchange and Upper East Coast Bus Terminal and enhance connectivity for commuters in the Bedok South area to Bedok Town Centre, as well as Eunos and Hougang. The extended route will ply New Upper Changi Road, Bedok South Avenue 3 and Upper East Coast Road.

      Service 25 will operate from Upper East Coast Bus Terminal from 5.30am to 11.30pm daily. In addition, the first trip towards Ang Mo Kio from Bedok Station (Exit A) along New Upper Changi Road will start at 5.15am from Mondays to Saturdays and at 5.30am on Sundays and Public Holidays. The operating hours from Ang Mo Kio Bus Interchange remain unchanged.

      Service 55 
      Similarly, the route of Service 55 will be extended to terminate at Upper East Coast Bus Terminal. Currently, it loops at Siglap Road for its return journey to Bishan Bus Interchange. The extension will enhance connectivity for existing and upcoming developments in the Bayshore area with Eunos and Hougang. With the extension, it will ply Marine Parade Road, Bedok South Avenue 1 and Upper East Coast Road. It will, however, skip the bus stop opposite Mandarin Gardens (93199) along Siglap Road.

      Service 55 will operate from Bishan Bus Interchange from 5.30am to 11.45pm from Mondays to Saturdays and from 5.45am to 11.45pm on Sundays and Public Holidays. From Upper East Coast Bus Terminal, it will operate from 5.20am to 11.40pm from Mondays to Saturdays and from 5.30am to 11.40pm on Sundays and Public Holidays.

      Service 155 
      The route of Service 155 will be extended to terminate at Bedok Bus Interchange. Currently, it commences its trip at Toa Payoh Bus Interchange and loops at Siglap Road for its return journey. The extension will enhance connectivity between Bedok and Telok Kurau and serve amenities such as the Parkway East Hospital and the new [email protected] Integrated Complex en-route. With the extended route, it will ply Marine Parade Road, Bedok South Avenue 1, New Upper Changi Road, Bedok North Avenue 3 and Bedok North Street 1, and skip the bus stop opposite Mandarin Gardens (93199) along Siglap Road.

      Service 155 will operate daily from 6.00am to midnight from Toa Payoh Bus Interchange and from 5.40am to 11.30pm from Bedok Bus Interchange.

    • Hi, my point is more on Discrimination in the workforce. Dont get me wrong, Im working, albeit for a MNC.

      I'm a PR here, married to a Singaporean.

      Apply for a job, ring the agency and they tell you that the client wants an Asian only.   So I tell them thats Discrimination...  then they dont want to talk to you anymore.

      Even had an agenct tell me direct that they throw out Amgmo CV's because they only want to employ Singaporeans.

      Do that in Aust and get caught and you and the company can face a fine up to $100k.

      I find it quite common here.

      Local HR are Singaporeans or Malay and toss the Foreigner Cv's in the bin.  A fact.

      Local company almmost impossible to get job. Has to be MNC.

      Not sure what anyone else experience.

      Just my viewpoint.

    • Major issues with bike-sharing apps

      Two days after its formal launch in Singapore, Chinese-owned bike-sharing app Mobike still has some major issues to iron out.

      The New Paper tried the three bike-sharing platforms - Mobike, ofo and oBike over two days.

      Eight out of 10 times, those who tried Mobike could not find the bicycle.

      The team combed areas like Tampines, Clarke Quay, Bras Basah and Kallang, and while the app indicated the bikes were at spaces like MRT stations and along pavements, they would be missing from these locations, even after a "reservation" had been made on the app.

      Some of the bike icons on the app would even indicate the bicycles were inside private residences, hospitals, storerooms and construction areas.

      Although the TNP team managed to find a Mobike at Tampines and Kallang Leisure Park, the bike icon on the app showed it was a distance away from where the two bicycles were supposed to be located.

      Mobike uses a dockless bike-share system and users can unlock its bicycles by scanning a QR code on it.

      Each bicycle comes with a proprietary "smart lock" containing GPS technology.

      In response to TNP queries, Mr Florian Bohnert, head of international expansion at Mobike, said: "If the bike icons are not showing up correctly, we advise users to look around their surroundings and across the streets to locate the bikes, as the marker on the map may be affected by the surrounding environment such as buildings and other possible obstructions affecting the accuracy of the GPS signal on the map view."

      A spokesman said the company has more than a million bikes in operation. As it can monitor the location and health of Mobikes in real time, "the number of bikes that are lost or damaged is negligible".

      He added: "When necessary we can intervene, for example when a bike is damaged or parked in an unsuitable location."

      Mobike had a team studying the local market to prepare for its launch from last October and have ramped up the deployment since Tuesday's launch.

      There were similar struggles with China-based ofo, which does not use a GPS system.

      Users would have to find a bike and enter the bike number in the app.

      It will return a combination code which can be used to release the lock on the bike.

      The New Paper team searched various MRT stations from the heartlands to the CBD area, parks and Housing Board void decks, but none of ofo's bright yellow bikes were spotted.

      Based on the team's two-day mission, local venture oBike seems to have the least issues.

      Bicycles from oBike could easily be found, with many parked at various MRT stations.

      Unlike Mobike, oBike tracks its bicycles through the GPS system on the user's app, and a bicycle was found at the first attempt, near the McDonald's outlet at Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park.
