    Yesterday while having lunch at a dim sum restaurant I saw a Scania K23OUB on bus service 130

    Didn’t manage to get a shot of it but I think it was SBS 8279L

    Also made a debut on 15 April 2021

    • 13 February 2022 at 1:37 AM

      I just saw one at Shenton Way on 11 Feb 2022

  • 27 August 2017 at 2:30 PM

    How would I find out the estimated time of arrival of the bus I just boarded. Eg . I got on the 130 at Kitchener Road and my destination is Any Mo Kio terminus.
