    Hi ,

    The frequency of Bus Service 62 as shown below.

    0530-0830: 08 – 09 mins
    0831-1659: 08 – 17 mins
    1700-1900: 08 – 14 mins
    After 1900: 12 – 17 mins

    The frequency during 0831 – 1659 is 8 to 17 mins. Many people are rushing to work from 0730 to 0930 and this caused so much unpredictability and anguish when a person should missed a bus and forced to wait 17 minutes for the next one.

    The frequency during 1700-1900 is 8 to 14 mins. Many people are rushing back from work from 1700 to 2000. Many children are anxiously waiting for their parents to bring back dinner or come home for dinner.

    In addition, there are frequent cases where two bus 62 arrive together due to the long wait of the first bus and picking up a bus load full of passengers. When the second bus arrived, the passengers were picked up by the first bus 62 and thus the second bus had less passengers to pick up or drop off, resulting in faster commute. This also caused the above problem to repeat as the third bus will pick up the pent up collection of passengers while the fourth bus cruises closely behind. A more frequent bus service schedule will prevent this from occurring.

    Please review the frequency and improve on this aspect. An ideal interval is 8-11 mins. Should there be a traffic jam, the maximum wait for a person waiting for bus 62 will be better managed. Passengers going to work and back home will enjoy the peace of mind knowing the maximum wait is 11 mins during rush hour. This will promote better quality of life and reduce stress level in Singapore. Please consider my proposal and I look forward to a reply

    Thanks
    Pauline

    Hi,
    I Need to provide a feedback that there was a 22min wait for bus 62 on 10 Oct.

    I was at bus stop next to punggol plaza. Just missed bus 62 at 9.50am. The next bus came at 10.22am.

    Please improve the regular frequency of the bus service

    Thanks
    Pauline
