    Basically, just a few stops, along CCK Ave 4, CCK Way, CCK Ave 3 and Brickland Road. And I realise this service only runs out from Choa Chu Kang MRT bus stop to the CCK housing estate, and not to Choa Chu Kang MRT bus stop from the CCK housing estate.

    I was a regular commuter of 975. Thus, I am able to comment on this new bus service.

    1. Considering 975 and 975A is just the difference of an additional A in terms of numbering, there will almost certainly be people taking 975A, thinking that it goes beyond Brickland Road. Imagine the large number of people alighting at Brickland Road, and the bottleneck created as a result, as 975 buses at Brickland Road may not have the capacity to accept additional passengers at Brickland Road.

    2. I feel that the direction of 975A is wrong. During evening periods, CCK Ave 3 requires additional buses towards CCK MRT, and not from CCK MRT.

    3. This honestly would be much better if introduced as a new route number, and running as a bus service that only runs during peak periods, from CCK bus interchange to Brickland Road and CCK Avenue 3 via the Kranji Expressway. It can be a singular loop service similar to the Bukit Batok feeder bus service 941 before it was amended.

    4. Thereafter, if demand picks up, the new route number can progressively upgrade into a full-day service.

    This is my concern about 975A, as well as a suggestion on what could have been done instead of introducing 975A.

      Demand 0-5 pax every trip. Why bother introducing a redundant service when there are alternatives now?

    Why you withdraw bus 975A in the first place, then reintroduce it?

      Because LTA enhanced 975B? Because LTA doesn’t want to introduce 975C? Continue living up to your wonders

    Wouldn’t need to introduce this service if they actually retained 300’s (300G/W) & 301’s original routing. What a waste of resources reintroducing this short trip service. Would be a joke if they interline DD to this nonsense service 😂

      I was about to write that, or even recommend rerouting an existing bus route such as 974 to run 975A route.

      Actually, rerouting 991, which currently runs relatively empty buses along 172 route, to let 991 ply 975A route, may work.

      Perhaps the authorities may want to consider this suggestion.

        Leave 974 & 991 alone. Their current routings are long winded enough.
