    Bus 550 no longer plying the sengkang east/West route. Now there is over congestion at the layar and fernvale bus stops. Please consider adding a 3rd bus to this route.

      Strongly Agree
      The bus got full even before last 3 bus stops, so it didn’t even stop!
      Please consider more frequency.
