    Service 85, lady driver, Sg5908. We were going to board the bus but a wheelchair bound man is alighting. This she assisted the man first. The driver keep on shouting at the man who maneuvered wrongly.. Then slam the ramp after he alighted. Well maybe the ramp slipped. But the facial expressions on her face was really unpleasant. It would have been easier if she were to help n push the wheelchair

    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.
