      is this a joke? using google map timing already need 15 mins for a car under normal traffic (and assuming that the car is travelling at 90km/hr on expressway).

      run time for 851E from yishun to New Bridge road 1 hr 5 min....

      lol swapping both timings around would make much more sense, but 18 mins on expressway also need to factor in traffic lights along AMK Ave 1

       

      maybe yishun sports hall to YCK station can cut to 7 mins (considering that Lentor Ave express takes about 4 mins)

      I will rather these 6 DDs all go to go HGDEP to replace the Tridents down there. SEDEP got plenty of B9TLs and I dun think 851e need DDs yet.

      As for the internal PIS, I suspect that unless it is a plug and play system it is not going to work. Unless LTA forces them to make it work (and that incurs additional costs).

      Refer to my post above. If you have seen the tender specs, the LCD screens are to show next stops, at least 3 next stops.

       

      It will be plug and play, using VDV300/301 protocol. But whether LTA has procure the protocol is another thing. Full system is expected to work by this year or next year. As for now, it will be half fked.

      But you may be right that NCF is going to be a serious issue come the next fare review.

      851e is both the merger of old 850 (Yishun - Bukit Merah) & 520 (Yishun - New Bridge Road).

      147e is both the merger of old CT28 (Clementi - Chinatown) & 148 (Clementi - Lorong 1 Geylang). Probably it will be extended, if not it will duplicate 147 entirely even more.

      12e is the merger of old 518 (Bedok - Marina Centre/MBS) & 8 (Bedok - Shenton Way).

    • My essay topic was superb, no idea at all how to wrtie. 

      Then never expect the psychometric test will have so many sets and questions. 

      Interview still ok, due to work in cisco before so mainly they ask me about my experience and opinion in the operation.

       

      @Lololl12345kj I think they mentioned if no news within 2 weeks means good news which is queuing for the next stage. So just be patient and wait. 😁😁

      Our EDS is capable of displaying Chinese characters, during CNY some PTO displayed Chinese greetings.

       

      The LCD panels are for next stops display, it will also show mrt stations at the bus stop. It is something  that came out10-20 years ago in western countries. But now when everyone is using mobile phones to check, our cavemen LTA decided to copy the concept.

      Nope. It is not in tender spec and I don't think it will ever be.
