    I would prefer 66 to be amended to Whampoa as none of the services from Jurong East serve Balestier road and Whampoa estate, plus it could be an alternative to 143 if 66 runs via Thomson road towards Novena MRT

    actually you can complain either to LTA or MP to halt the amendments routes like what they did back in August 2020 at Bukit Panjang with Service 171, 971, 972 & defuct 700/A & previous years at CCK with 300, 301 & 983. but still, try it first especially bus 66 & 506

    I prefer to be this way if they really want to cut or amend the bus service.

    22 Ang Mo Kio ITH – Bedok ITH
    66 Jurong East INT – Lor 1 Geylang TER
    506 Jurong East INT – Eunos INT

    Let Bus Service 506 be as how it is. IT is Fine. For Service 66 , It is Duplicating DTL 2 not 3 so 66 can still go from Jurong East to Bedok but skip Bukit timah Sector.

    22, 66 make sense because they’re mostly duplicating the MRT (DTL East, CCL for 22, DTL West for 66). The one I’m surprised at is 506 – especially since the main catchment is for long journeys to TPY, BBT and JE – of which the route is not duplicating the DTL at all!

      22 will likely stay as it is.

      65 and 66 makes sense for now, because it is duplicating the MRT (DTL3 from Ubi to Tampines for 65, and DTL3 from Jalan Besar to Bedok Reservoir for 66) and hence it is low in demand. These bus services are jam prone at Serangoon Road and hence, with removal of these routes, it can be reduced.

      506 is going to be downgraded to trunk service similar to 971 as Jurong East – Upper East Coast but go via Caldecott MRT Station so as to provide link to Thomson-East Coast Line Stage 2.

        For 65 it is DTL3 from Bencoolen to Tampines, I suggest to say less loading from Bencoolen to Tampines.

        Yes, I agreed with the word ” jam prone” for 65 & 66 as it can affect the reliability of the bus services, which may result in longer waiting times for bus, which I am sure no one wants, especially for a car-lite nation, a 20 minute town, & a 45 minute city.
