Some bus route changes I would really like to see enacted:
(1) 171 cut short: to be shortened to Bt Panjang or Bt Batok, as Bt Timah – Orchard section is heavily duplicated and redundant after DTL2.
(2) 173 rerouted; Clementi – Hume to extend to Chestnut / Bt Panjang. The lost Bt Batok stretch to be covered by 176 / 177.
(3) 177 extended to Yew Tee via Woodlands Rd & KJE, to provide DTL2 link to Yew Tee while Bt Panjang ITH isn’t up. Peak hour service to MINDEF renumbered 177A, the rest unchanged.
(4) 178 split; Boon Lay – BBDEP to be given to SBST, possible amendment to Jurong East MRT. Remainder as 968 from Woodlands – Bt Batok, or simply loop at WDL checkpoint as 908.
(5) 859 amended: shortened loop at Sembawang to Admiralty Dr / Sembawang Cres only. Yishun end can be extended, be it west to Bt Panjang, south to AMK or east to Sengkang / Punggol / Pasir Ris.
