    28 is very crowded usually during school dismissal between 1.30pm to 6.30pm. frequency should be faster 6-10 mins and not 6-15 mins. This is to allow more demand to be cope(hope LTA can look into this)

      Tampines to Toa Payoh takes one hour twenty minutes. Is this considered fast? I have also thought and concern the bus driver will be super tired after driving for such long hours
