    First day of 983M just started, there’s a decent chunk of students using it even at 6:40am, first bus didn’t have that many people standing as there were enough seats. Not sure about the 7:00am bus but I hope more people will use it in the following days ofc 🙂

    Y bother which such a horrible service anyways? Not only does it have horrible frequencies (cmon lah LTA at least just add two more trips at 0630 and 0650, better than nothing), it also does not serve ANY MRT or LRT station, so, what? Only for CCK residents? Add on, it starts from an intermediate bus stop! Make it start from CCK Int and then we’re talking!

      Crazy. Why need so many trip? Why need start CCK?

      0630 who the hell want reach school so early?
      Start CCK for what? Go to school at Teck Whye Crescent can just take 190 975 985 and walk a bit what. Don’t be lazy
      Wasting taxpayer money for this silly service when already got bus service outside. Got school bus option also. All the passenger for this service also not paying adult fare.

      Bus fan need to use their brain and think. Really only bus bus bus
