    I am frequent passenger for bus 502A in the morning and I would like to suggest if the bus company can use those buses which has more seats or double decker as I observe that the bus is always full of people standing.
    Because I personally find that for express bus to move around expressway is like not always smooth as there will be traffic jam so sometime bus driver may need to brake suddenly and that it create danger for passenger who are standing.
    Secondly is the cost we pay for express bus is more expensive than normal feeder bus but why we got no seat at all?
    This is what I personal suggestion and hope my suggestion will be appreciated.
