    3 bus service passing by opposite choa chu kang market at avenue 1. 983, 172 and 991 whereas only 1 bus service is passing avenue 7. Making it even more inconvienient. Wake up your damn idea. The bus passing avenue 7 is the most packed one of all. Replacing 308 with 991 and it’s new route is pure shit.
