    I realise the bus service 79 frequency has dropped “tremendously “. It takes more than 20min during the morning peak hour at around 0630 to 0700hr. Are your bus drivers taken leaves due to school holiday??? Most people are complaining as we are daily users and never face such a slow down in the past. The service is ridiculous and inconvenience to the most.
