    Wise amendment for a stretch with several parallel routes. Can also look into amending a route that makes a loop at Jln Kembangan, calling at the svc 42 1st/last stop, in the direction towards town area to better serve Lengkong Tiga flats & link to Kembangan MRT.

    Good to have service 26 amended, as there are multiple parallel routes! Plus those at Chai Chee can also get to Geylang Serai or Bendemeer in one bus trip.

      I bet TCJ pushed for this. Chai Chee Dr used to be served by Route 222 in only one direction.
