    Dear Sir/Madam,
    I cannot access the official Transtar TS8 online brochure for the estimated arrival timings at individual stop. Can I have a copy of it send to my email?
    I have a question, if I reach Singapore custom and get stuck at the immigration because a lot of people and missed the bus that I take, can I take the the next bus and do I need to pay again?
    Thanks.

    Best regards,
    Kee
