One thought on “SBS Transit Bus Service 35M

  • 22 October 2017 at 8:20 PM

    My son has just been posted to Changi Naval Base and needs to report on every Sunday night. I notice that there is no bus service to CNB as bus no 35M which operates on Sunday loop at Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal. Bus 35 doesn’t operates on Sunday. Since both bus services operate on the same route, I don’t understand why they are both named differently and ply slightly different routes. CNB doesn’t provide shuttle buses at Tanah Merah MRT station but only a measly 42 seater coach at 930pm. Either my son queues at 830pm to ensure a seat, or needs to take a cab which is rather expensive for a NS man. Accordingly to him, over 100 men are vying for the shuttle bus and it is engaged to serve the whole camp. Is there any way to extend bus no 35M to service CNB?
    Thank you for your kind understanding in this matter.
