      If the loading is also poor, then this part of the route could have been improved.

      Loading is indeed weaker in the east than in the West..  but I always saw the east sector for looping services..

      Maybe they can revise where 372 loops back to anchorvale.. Or better still, since gekpohboy is so worried about eastern residents having to sit so long, can just make 372 a townlink so it plies either Sengkang or Compassvale twice..

      Jalan Turi -- 9 (-1/2)

      Eunos Interchange

      * Peak loading of 17 pax

      * Bus in front = 12 min. 

      * Svc 15 in front = 05 min, svc 155 in front = 05 min.

      * Bus departing Eunos Interchange left with 04 pax on board (some may board along Sims Ave)

      * Surely a loss making service as both weekday/weekend loading hasn't taken up. 

      I took 150 during PM peak on Monday. The bus was filled to the brim. 

      And to add context, a 155 just left 5 mins ago.

      Guess for the new 137 which originated from Sims Place Terminal..last 2 weeks saw SBS5138E with few BCs on board use that road.

      Admiralty Rd West -- 20(-1/10), 21(0/1), 17(-9/5), 21(0/4), 25(0/4) *1st stop many foreign workers boarded the bus, whereas 3rd stop many SMRT BCs alighted.

      Admiralty Rd East -- 27(0/2)

      Sembawang Rd -- 26(-2/1), 28(0/2), 27(-1/0)

      Yishun Ave 2 -- 29(0/2), 31(0/2), 28(-4/1), 15(-23/10), 12(-3/0) *as expected, highest pax alighting/boarding activity at Yishun MRT

      Yishun Ave 3 -- 15(-1/4), 17(-2/4)

      Semb Rd -- 15(-2/0), 16(0/1), 14(-2/0), 14(-1/1)

      AMK Ave 3 -- 32(-1/3), 34(-1/3), 28(-6/0)

      AMK Int -- 0(-28/0) *I alighted here @ 1:34pm (69min used)

       

      * Highest no. of pax = 34, along AMK Ave 3, mostly heading to AMK Int, justified by highest no. of pax alighting at Int.

      *2nd highest no. of pax = 31, along Yishun Ave 2, two stops before Yishun MRT

      *Loading is quite good even at Sunday. Upper deck is a quarter full and lower deck all sitting occupied at its peak loading. DD provided commuters with a comfortable ride, if not SD will be packed.

      Those who frequent this svc, I think during weekday peak even DD will be fully packed within the Admiralty industrial area??

       

       

      3/4 or full depends cause 169 freq are pretty good during peak

      for morning peak, DD will be Super full even after students alighted

      Depot Rd -- 19(-7/1), 16(-3/0), 9(-7/0) ---> Depot Heights Shopping Ctr (I alighted here @ 1318hrs)

       

      *Highest loading occured at Alexandra Rd, mainly catering to office crowd going to nearby Depot Rd and Bkt Merah Ctrl for lunch.

      *2nd highest loading occured at Novena MRT, and has the highest passenger boarding/alighting activity.

      *From what i observed, during off peak hours, this route mainly shuttling commuters b/w TPY estate to Novena MRT, and from Vivocity to Depot Rd/Bkt Merah. There are also plenty of nurses travel from Novena MRT to nearby KK Hospital for work.

      *Demand from Bishan to Lorong 6 TPY also quite good.

      *Due to off peak hour, demand in city is quite weak.

       

      Those who frequently travel in this svc, peak hour demand is it very high and packed to the door in the city?? 

       

      Demand can be very high during peak hours cause of the connections especially towards tpy/bishan

      joann posted : "He is all over Ivanka with hugs and kisses, but not his wife!!!"

      Spirit posted : "Take note of the body language between the two. When you see them walking together she's usually at his side about a foot away. I've been married 30 years now and my spouse and I still hold hands whenever we're out together. One could easily be persuaded to believe that she married him for his money, and he married her for her looks."
