    Tell your driver to stop staring in that rude and disrespectful manner.

    really wish that bus 973 can be extended to Bukit Batok Interchange and MRT station to strengthen the bus link between Bukit Batok and Bukit Penjang as resident in this two areas are keen to have a direct bus from between Bukit Batok and Bukit Penjang.

    Thank you for bus 973. I am a resident of Eco Sanctuary and my children are studying in Bukit Batok. It will help if we can extend bus 973 to Bukit Batok Interchange. I believe there are many residents in Chestnut Ave would like to go to Bukit Batok interchange or MRT and we have to change buses. For your consideration please.

    The route of this bus is rather short. I am glad that this bus serve to supplement bus 966 and 700 via the Petir Road. I was abit disappointed as I was hoping there would be a bus that would connect busstop B44379/B44371 and B44219/B44211 together. I think the route of this bus should be extended to ply the road to ITE College West and Choa Chu Kang interchange too to supplement both bus 187 and bus 67 due to student demand. 🙂
