    What buses will SMRT transfer back to Bulim?
    2 E12 & 2 A22 Euro V/VI?

    • 18 December 2020 at 11:55 AM

      I suspect they will transfer A22s. I really hope not the E12s. E12s can return to 983 or be used on other Kranji Depot services.

    Should exchange for 974 and TTS take this 944

      I just took bus 944 outside Bukit Batok poly clinic a while ago. There were about three of four passengers. One wheel chair lady w her maid. Not sickly or seriously handicapped.
      I was with my 6 days old pre term baby waiting anxiously for the bus to take us home away from the pollution – one bus stop away. The door was opened right in front of us but the instructor sternly without even looking at us ordered the door to be closed again n. After to the need of the wheel chair. I was furious. With engine running w the 6 days old baby in my hand. Had to wait for instruction done inside bus. Then opened the door. This is obviously ridiculously inflexible. When door opened with the driver rather looking sorry, I asked why can do it at the same time. Baby is equally impt too. The instructor hearing it looked at n kind of walking toward n asking ‘ what is wrong’. I am not intimated. So I shared my concerned. He can even say the air is fresh. I should have answered him tt he tries standing there with his six days premature baby n then come n tell me if fresh or not. Totally totally no EQ n Inflexibility. He said wheel chair is priority. I understand they need help but what is wrong letting baby in since door is open later then can teach the driver! Isn’t our next generation is equally impt as wheel chaired. That lady is in good health n talking w maid. Hello! Where are right values balanced with empathy. I did not like the attitude of that driver. ( grey t short) wearing wooden pearly bracket. Approaching one or two steps toward asking in that intimating tone. Please la SOP is impt but please have some human spirit in your staff.

      944 have already been awarded for TTS starting End-May 2021. And for 974, have to wait in 2023

  • 30 August 2017 at 8:22 PM

    Hmmm, if need to merge 308 and 947, can always go by Brickland Rd and thru keat hong area support 983 !

  • 20 August 2017 at 8:39 AM

    Under Khaw regime,LTA is trying hard to give both SBST and SMRT more service even have to go to this extend..2021/22 can say bye2 to TTS/GAS

    • 21 August 2017 at 5:53 PM

      LTA has also tried hard to give Go-Ahead a new service – 381. You left that out.

      • 29 August 2017 at 2:03 PM

        That was previous and the fiasco start with Seletar

  • 15 August 2017 at 10:44 AM

    Ooh, Bukit Batok feeder services will have two operators. This is gonna be interesting.

    • 15 August 2017 at 11:10 PM

      Merge 947 with 308 (combined route under CCK) and let TT take over the responsibility for 944.

      • 28 August 2017 at 12:56 AM

        Hmmm.. That is an interesting idea but the main idea of feeders is to connect residential areas to nearby transport facilities, not connecting Interchange to Interchange (that’s the job for Trunks).

        But if you want to merge Choa Chu Kang (308) and 947 (Bukit Batok) just to let TTS Operate 944 won’t be that feasible as there already is 188/E/R and 985 to connect those two areas.
