    Dear Sir,

    I working at Tampines Industrial Ave 5, current we have another bus service 127, can this be turn out from old tampines procceed to Pasir Ris instead of going back to Tampines Interchange as bus service 58 takes a long time interval. As bus 127 is usually empty during off peak , if can go Pasir Ris ,it helps us for more lunch venues .
