    Great news for the living in the Kim Keat vicinity. There haven’t been any bus svs plying this area for a very long time. Thanks to the planner. Most of us are happy to welcome this service.
    Thank you

    For anyone wondering why svc 230 even exists, 230 is an interim route that is planned to merge with an existing svc to make a G/W svc.

    Wow that was… underwhelming, to say the least. All that hype for 2 new bus stops and no other significant new connections??? I mean I can understand if connecting it to Lor 7/8 is too much too soon, but then like… no wonder 3 of the 4 locations advertised were all on Lorong 6, this bus goes nowhere

      They could have simply amended 238 to loop twice there…one in one out. Add DDs too

    Have they considered rerouting an existing bus route, before considering this new bus route?

    Just for that 2 new bus stops, then introduce a new bus route, is a little bit excessive.

    Really can consider merging this new bus route with an existing bus route.

      They could have merged it with 232 cuz it already serve the existing bus stops in this new route. Also if 232 is amended to serve the 2 new bus stops, none of the existing bus stops being served by 232 will be affected. The only change that 232 will have is that it will do an ‘8’ shaped loop.

    Only Q is which berth will it use? Shared with 238 makes sense since they go similar places, but that 231/238 queue is already heaving as is. Maybe they can swap 73 back to B1 and put 231 to B3 to pair with 141?

      Was a shock to see 230 being put with 157 & 159 at B4 not gonna lie. It feels weird for the service to be there
