    On 13 December at 4 05pm, when i was at bus stop 59069 opp blk 757 waited for 15 min long for bus 85 going back to punggol yet the bus 85 driver just drove pass us even have 4 passengers waving frantically at him. He just drove off even though he saw us.
    This is totally unacceptable. Most of the bus drivers will slow down yet this driver just simply drove off.
