    The 7.50am bus has been late consecutively for a 3 days. Many were waiting futilely for 15-20 mins. The travel apps available are not able to capture the arrival times accurately as well, causing a major inconvenience.

      Hi Felicia,

      We would like to highlight that the bus departure timings provided here are from the first stop along Punggol Road. It takes about 15 – 20 mins to travel from the first stop to the last stop before the express sector to CBD. Nonetheless, you may wish to forward your feedback using the official LTA feedback form at https://www.lta.gov.sg/feedback/.

    And also, possible to add the bus frequency as the bus getting crowded and some people staying in fernvale and last stop could not board the bus.
