    Hope Short Trip 7A should be withdrawn due to low demand.

    These pair of short trip services operate at peak hours is just enough.

    Another redundant new svc from LTA.

      Redundant? Do you know how crowded Svc 7 can be during peak hours? You clearly don’t know what you’re talking about so maybe you should keep quiet and not try to push your anti-LTA agenda
