    Really think that it is a great move to send out double decker buses for Service 83 because students usually take up alot of space (esp after school hours) , which actually causes obstruction for people who want to alight the bus.Now that there are double decker buses,more seats are available and obstruction would be prevented.Thank you,GO AHEAD!!!

    Should amend the route and skip Punggol Field.New route is direct to outside Sengkang Int and terminate at the future Buangkok Int
