    This bus service was the bus I took to school in primary 6 (2008), secondary school days (2009 to 2013), and Polytechnic days (2014 to 2017). The users are mainly students whose school and house are within walking distance to a 185 bus stop. Bus 185 provides a direct connection, without having to transfer at Boon Lay Bus Interchange or at an intersecting bus stop elsewhere. Of course, during weekends and school holidays, it reliefs the loading off bus 99 for intratown connection in Jurong West.

    This bus service was introduced in December 2006. It has been 13 full years since this bus service was introduced, and 185 has served 13 batches of students across primary school, secondary school and tertiary (if they study at Singapore Polytechnic), which is around 3 cycles of secondary school population, and counting.

    Highly recommend? LOL.

    Just like the Jurong Industrial Services, 185 is essentially a school bus, which can have its operating hours limited to just morning (0630 to 0730), afternoon (1330 to 1430) and evening (1730 to 1830), on weekdays. That is, if they want to limit the operating periods.

    Otherwise, bus service 185, with its passengers mainly students, and students pay concession fares, is actually a loss making route, even though the ridership is high.

    Nonetheless, bus 99 and 502 are subsiding this route. So it’s okay. πŸ™‚
