    Yesterday morning, when I was on my way taking bus 160 to ITE, the bus driver suddenly stops at (B07) Opp Dunearn Sec Sch, than he told the passengers to alight this stop as this bus service is 160A, but not 160. The bus driver didn’t change the EDS properly from 160 to 160A making the passengers confused the route. The bus driver should have inform passengers at Jurong East Interchange whether they were going to Bukit Batok.

    I hope SBS Transit should improve their services (eg: Driver’s Attitude) much better in the future.
